Le Colonial is a truly delightful culinary experience. Like stepping into French Colonial Southeast Asia, this two-story restaurant, designed by Greg Jordan, consists of a main dining room with louvered wall panels, colorful tile floors, and vintage photos of Vietnam. Upstairs is an elegant, but lively, lounge serving a full dinner or just appetizers and cocktails. The lounge serves as an ideal setting for private parties and business dinners. Chef Ronald Wingwee Hsu serves an authentic Vietnamese menu with an emphasis on fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables.

"this restaurant has been around for a long time, and the food has remained consistently good. my shrimp and scallop dish with vegetable slaw was delicious, as was the monkfish appetizer make into an entree. the service was quick, but a tad pushy (constantly offering more drinks before we halfway done with the existing)"

The memorable Northern Italian Cuisine makes this Upper East Side restaurant special. The Spaghetti Lobster is the classic signature dish of this Mediterranean treasure. The Wine Spectator awarded extensive and serious wine menu is carefully selected by owner Enrico Proietti. Very often a private wine tasting is happening at the corner table <br />making the wine list more notable every season. The one of a kind brick oven offers a variety of dishes, exceptional pizza and foccacina rabbiola that is hard to find in this city. For something sweeter-the deserts are impressive! The atmosphere is charming in this power playing neighborhood.

"Perfect place for a late lunch at the bar. The bartenders are always convivial and the food is very good (artichoke salad, linguini alla vongole). Nice wine selection too!"

Located at Second Avenue and 66th Street, Mediterraneo is the epitome of style and fine Italian cuisine. Here the Florentine and Tuscan heritage of the owners, Massimo Stocchi and Vito Mezzatesta, translate into a menu filled with fragrant aromas and flavors spectacular enough to sate the most sophisticated palate.

With a focus on local products and seasonal produce Nick & Toni's Cafe Manhattan prepares fresh food simply. We source locally whenever possible and shop the NYC Green markets with twice-weekly visits to our neighbors at the Tucker Square market and others the including Union Square and Ft. Greene markets.<br /><br><br> The wood fired oven puts out perfectly crispy pizzas everyday at lunch and Sun-Thurs at dinner. Friday & Saturday nights be prepared for a special treat because, although there are no pizzas, many house specialties such as the Roasted Chicken, Whole Fish of the Day, or Scallops are prepared in the wood oven.<br /><br><br> We have a diverse and high quality selection of wines by the glass, and a moderately priced wine list. We also feature a full bar and an extensive cocktail list including a number of house infused alcohols that suit the seasons. <br><br> ** For reservations of parties of 5 or more please call the restaurant directly.
