"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."

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)"

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.
