Smörgås Chef Restaurant serves up super fresh seafood and prime meats based on centuries of Scandinavian & European culinary traditions. Zagat Survey says Smörgås Chef is "a refreshing change of pace", and Village Voice claims the food is "Damn Good."<br><br>Smörgås Chef's authentic Swedish Meatballs with Lingonberries have become famous. The New York Post calls Smörgås Chef the "Swedish Meatball Mecca" of New York. Smörgås Chef has also become known for its roasted rack of lamb with a goat cheese Sherry sauce, and its oven-baked Cod from the Kenai Peninsula.<br><br>For lunch, you will find a smorgasbord of open-face Scandinavian sandwiches like Cold water Shrimp, Smoked Salmon with Egg & Chives, and Chicken Caramel with Norwegian goat cheese and asparagus. For weekend brunch, enjoy Scandinavian Baked Eggs with a chanterelle hollandaise, Eggs Benedict, Burgers, and Vanilla Waffles. The New York Times calls Smörgås Chef "a little treasure Downtown."

PRINT is one of New York City’s premiere farm-to-table dining experiences. Executive Chef Charles Rodriguez and Executive Pastry Chef Emily Wallendjack create dishes that are inspired from products grown in the region. PRINT’s full-time forager, Meghan Boledovich, carefully procures ingredients that are brought in daily so guests can enjoy the best flavors that the season has to offer.<br /><br />Don’t miss the intimate setting of The Dens adjacent to the restaurant where specialty cocktails are handcrafted and complemented by our light fare menu. Another option, before or after dinner, is to relax at our year-round rooftop lounge, The Press Lounge, for cocktails and unobstructed views of Manhattan and the Hudson.

Opened in 2002, this local favorite has become an institution. Light Horse Tavern's chef, Carlos Ortega brings a new exciting vision to the Jersey City culinary scene. The chef's philosophy is to source out seasonal ingredients and to preserve the integrity of the product when cooking. <br /><br />The seasonal menu always includes a variety of fresh oysters and clams, as well as lighter fare such as the grilled octopus salad, fresh market fish, and heartier favorites such as the prime steaks.<br /><br />Whether settling in at the bar for a pint or indulging in the spectacular cuisine, you are sure to become addicted to the experience. Visit any day for lunch, weekend days for brunch, and always for exquisite food, people watching and pristine outdoor seating. <br /><br />Light Horse Tavern, a revolutionary dining experience!

"Good meal at Light Horse Tavern. Perhaps I've been there too much, but would love to see a few new options on the menu, but can't complain--always a good meal, and child-friendly."

Amanda's has been delighting customers for over 20 years. Guests enter our elegantly restored brownstones and are warmly welcomed by an accommodating staff. Although geographically close to Manhattan and certainly as culinary sophisticated, we're not slow to smile and truly aim to please each guest. Highly rated by the Zagat Guide for food, service and decor, we are proud to have been named on their short list of the state's Most Popular Restaurants. Our popularity stems from the talents of our CIA-trained chef, Rodney Petersen, our dedication to warm, gracious service and the comfortable elegance of our dining rooms. Amanda's is the natural choice for so many occasions: the romantic couple on a "date to impress," a family brunch on Sunday or the place to enjoy pre-theater Early Dinner at a price that is really too good to believe. Sophisticated wine lovers enjoy our monthly five-course wine dinners.

Le Baratin is a casual French bistro located in the West Village overlooking bustling Greenwich Avenue between 6th and 7th Avenues. Working with local products and purveyors, our menus feature a selection of familiar bistro offerings. Our signature dishes include the mussels, the tartare de boeuf au couteau, and the steak frites with a homemade peppercorn sauce served with perfectly cooked hand-cut fries. Our dessert menu features a changing assortment of homemade desserts, but always includes classic favorites like crème brûlée and chocolate mousse.
