"Pleasant neighborhood French bistro with the added amenity of a jazz group playing. Food is good and honest."

Proof is a wine-centric restaurant serving Modern American cuisine.<br /><br />The casual, elegant feel to this Penn Quarter destination is reflected throughout Executive Chef Haidar Karoum’s menu. Proof showcases the best local, organic and sustainable ingredients in clean, beautiful preparations, an extensive international selection of cheese and charcuterie, as well as a wine list containing over 40 by-the-glass selections and 1,000 different bottles. <br />

"Have eaten here before and the menu was even better than in the past. Gumbo was outstanding - rich and subtly flavored. The tofu napoleon (which I had) was nicely constructed but the saucing was too sweet. Needed more bite. That is why my rating is very good rather than outsatnding. Next time I'll query more closely about sweetness in sauces."

"Very pleasant traditional French bistro food. Nice addition are the local crafts for sale ranging from ceramics to paintings and lithographs and jewelry. Bouillabaise was on special and was excellent sized portion - could have been more flavorful - same true of the chicken stew. Labeled as Blanquette de Volaille but in my experience that dish would have mushrooms and some cream. This had neither. This is nice neighborhood place but not worth if you are not in the area."

"Our server was very very good especially considering that he had to support the sommelier. We had the obligatory prix fixe (75) + wine pairing (45) & 1 burger with foie gras (25) - $350 including tip. NOT a 350 experience even in midtown. I am a NY resident & experienced diner. Tuna tartare was fresh but flavorless & not well seasoned. The special burger was not. The white wine pour with the first course was so stingy that it didn't make it thru the course. The reds were poured from carafes and we were unable to find out exactly what we were drinking although the waiter tried. He was finally told that mine was a Medoc, NOT precise enough for me. I would color myself disappointed."

Opened in March of 2002, Dolci has fast created its very own Cipriani "scene" thanks to its chic ambiance, attentive service and well-priced Venetian menu. The restaurant offers all day casual dining, and the bar has become a lively after work meeting place, renowned for its charming bartenders and sensational tower of prosciutto.

"Great view from the balcony of the wonderful blue ceiling and the marvelous space that is Grand Central Station. The food is good but very high priced given that it is catering to people in a train station. And the service was fair at best. A very helpful maitresse d' seated us well away from the door but after that the service was not warm or helpful. Would recommend to a friend who wants the view an is willing to pay the price. Next time I'll skip the view and head to the Grand Central Oyster Bar which will reopen in March 2014."

"Interesting small plates. Specially pleased by a salmon tartare and the lamb belly. SHould note that although portions are described as designed for sharing they are very small indeed. The sommelier was extremely helpful and we enjoyed a white burgundy that was fully new to us. Would definitely return."

Founded in 1908 by the Davino family Grotta Azzurra was named for the blue grotto on the isle of Capri and designed to evoke the beauty of one of the worlds most famous caves in the world, intensified.<br><br>Enrico Caruso feasted here after performances, and Sinatra called it his one and only favorite Italian restaurant, making it the site of many a “Rat Pack” evening.<br><br>Shuttered for six years, Grotta Azzurra has now been stunningly renovated and rebirthed by a descendant renaissance for dining in Little Italy, with multi-talented chef Frank Castellana recreating the finest in Italian Cuisine.

"Good standard southern Italian fare in the heart of Little Italy. We have eaten there many times over decades bit this was first time in some years. The old downstairs "Grotta" is now closed - used we were told for private parties. The wine list is laminated - a bad sign since it means unchanging availability although a relatively pricey listed 2007 Barolo was delivered as a 2009 and not mentioned by the waiter. However, the standards ARE good with ample portions. Lobster Fra diavolo was excellent and provided next day spaghetti dinner. Go to Ferrara's on Grand Street for dessert."
