In 1983, Café Luxembourg opened its doors to become the quintessential neighborhood bistro of the Upper West Side. The dining room of this charming 90 seat restaurant glows in the warm light of the Jean Perzel fixtures and antique mirrors. <br /><br />Located on 70th Street just west of Broadway, Café Luxembourg entertains New Yorkers and celebrities alike. The full service bar is home to many regulars. The lively buzz of the dining room is inviting and intimate. The frequency of dining customers is testament to the sincere efforts by the entire Café Luxembourg staff.<br /><br />The menu changes seasonally as well as offering daily specials. The classic menu dishes maintain a level of cooking on par with the city’s best restaurants. Café Luxembourg offers beautifully prepared food with professional, yet unpretentious service at reasonable prices. <br />

"I arranged to meet a friend at Cafe Luxembourg for Sunday brunch. It never disappoints. Great service, delicious bistro offerings and great ambiance. I have been here probably at least several times during thee separate decades...90s, 00s, 10s...Continues to be great yet thankfully without the over-the-top crowds and madness that Balthazar or Pastis historically garnered."

Located on the subterranean level of Dream Downtown, a crimson staircase leads to Cherry's warmly lit, romantic space replete with plush velvet seating evoking the feel of mid-century Paris. <br /><br />Cherry, created by co-owner of BONDST, Jonathan Morr, offers an innovative menu of French-inspired, Japanese fare complimented by a collection of more than 80 sake varietals and a list of hand-crafted cocktails. <br />

"My friends were staying at the Dream Downtown hotel. They usually have very demanding taste. We decided to eat right there at Cherry. We were completely impressed with the ambiance, food and service. A real winner in every regard and in a very hot spot of Chelsea"

"I am a native of Mexico City and have lived in New York for over 14 years. I was excited that Fonda Chelsea had opened. I was excited to read about the chef and his background. Upon arriving at Fonda Chelsea I found the space incredibly crowded completely overwhelming in terms of volume. Forget chatting with a friend unless you scream. The Chiles en Nogada which were a special were disappointing. They did not use the traditional ground beef and they were actually warm which is a complete no no. The watermelon Margarita actually tasted like a Bloody Mary, not sweet, very unusual. I am sorry to say I would not return. To their credit the guacamole and the flautas were very good. The bartender was distracted and kept forgetting our orders"

Eatery <br> Zagat 2013<br /> Ratings & Review <br><br />FOOD-22 DECOR-17 SERVICE-19 COST-$34<br /><br><br />"Comfort food with a trendy twist" is the calling card of this Hell's Kitchen American where the mid-priced chow arrives in "minimalist"' "diner-chic" digs; "be-seen" types like the "gay-friendly" people-watching and tolerate the high-volume "hustle and bustle"<br />as rated in the 2013 New York City Restaurants Guide-

"I have been here many times given closeness to where I live and reliable fare. This last time the service was chaotic, slow and disappointing. It was unclear who was our server and we kept having long delays before getting the next course or the check. This needs to be looked at because this is the kind of restaurant in which you expect pretty seamless service and, if you don't get that, it may just not be worth going back to"
