"A nice place to have lunch in the Boca Area. The salad with grilled shrimp is great (I remove the goat cheese, which is an odd combination with shellfish), as is the chicken salad. The service is always lovely and accommodating."

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.

"We had a lovely New Year's Eve dinner with friends - this restaurant is warm and welcoming, and very romantic. The service is excellent, and the food is always of a high quality. I ordered the steak frites - however, I only got to enjoy the steak, as my usually carb-eschewing boyfriend stole all the frites off my plate!! (and ate more than his fair share of the amazingly delicious bread pudding)"

"Hi there, it's chef Alex Garcia. In my kitchen there are no borders just fun delicious food made from the best ingredients I can get my oven mits on! As a native Cuban I grew-up appreciating the simple joys of food and conviviality centered around the family table, so here at AG Kitchen you'll find the food I enjoy cooking and eating with my friends and family. It's my take on American and Latin classic comfort food. There's my signature ceviches, and other starters and salads, a collection of burgers done my way, a delicious take on Roasted Chicken served Brazilian style, plus a paella style dish for 1 or more and mix and match surf and turf. It's always a dinner party at A.G. Kitchen.

"thoroughly disappointing. we happened upon AG kitchen soon after it opened on a quiet afternoon, and enjoyed the food, if not the dreadful decor (a beautiful wood interior was made over to resemble a DINER??)) And the diner transformation is complete, with lots of small and noisy children and mediocre food - the guacamole that we were looking forward to have again is now just average, the pulled pork in the tacos was dry. I know Alex Garcia is an accomplished chef, but it is not at all in evidence in this place that seems more like a kindergarten cafeteria than a serious restaurant."

Maditerranean restaurant in NYC. <br /><br />Please note we do not accept reservations for garden seating. Guests may request garden seating in the notes section when making a reservation and we will consider the request as long as the weather permits and there is space in the garden at the time of arrival for the inside reservation. Thank you for your understanding. <br /><br />

"I've eaten dinner here a few times, I had brunch this Sunday with friends - very nice change from the usual brunch menu! Excellent glass of Cabernet, very enjoyable food (interesting and unusual middle-eastern style egg dishes), and the greatest bread anywhere."

"Having been out of the area for 6 weeks, it was a pleasure to return to our favorite place, where the food is always great, and the service welcoming. This restaurant really knows how to cook fish properly - cooked through, but never overdone."

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.

"we enjoy Bella Blu at off hours, when it is quiet and relaxed. we had an exceptional sautéed artichoke appetizer, and great linguini alla vongole and pizza. and then we scoot out, as soon as the crowds start. and then we scoot out as soon as the crowds start pouring in, which they do nightly."
