Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas.<br /> <br />Treat yourself to our 50-60 item gourmet salad area including appetizers, fresh vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and Brazilian cheese bread. As your dining experience continues, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink or steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance that is Texas de Brazil.

Corvo Bianco offers Italian cuisine at its best. The charming dining room, located in a magnificent courtyard that was once the lobby of the Endicott Hotel (built in 1890), is the perfect meeting place for families, locals and visitors alike. <br /><br />The menu boasts an inventive assortment of fish, meats and house-made pastas and pizzas, all of which is accompanied by a carefully curated selection of wines and signature cocktails. Upon entering, the roomy bar area serves up a selection of featured cocktails, choice wines and beers, and a spread of distinctive bar fare. Inside, the 125 seat dining room's warm ambiance provides the perfect setting for a celebratory gathering or intimate evening, and the backroom is ideal for private parties.

Vic & Angelo's menu items are inspired by our desire to transform the American approach to fine, Italian dining into a memorable experience that pays homage to the authentic culinary traditions of Italy.<br />We have traveled the world looking for the greatest dishes and finest ingredients. We take pride in only importing the freshest products and ingredients for our culinary delights. Our sauces are made with San Marzano tomatoes imported from directly from Naples and our pizza dough contains water imported from New York.<br />Each of our signature Italian dishes are created in house, using traditional cooking methods practiced by Italians for countless generations. We even hand-make our pasta, mozzarella and sausage!<br />Our atmosphere is warm and friendly, yet elegant and refined. We believe in the traditional Italian dinner, where everyone comes together to feast. So we invite our guests to sit down, relax, and enjoy their food and conversation with family and friends.

City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill offers a varied menu including delicious hearth baked pizza, dry aged steaks, housemade fresh pasta and seafood. Some of our more popular dishes are the Flatbread of the Night, Gulf Shrimp-Sea Scallop Risotto, and housemade charcuterie. The menu also features a daily selection of hard to find artisanal cheeses. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and very tasty. City Cellar features a huge award winning wine collection that can be sampled by the bottle, glass or "flight". Outdoor dining is available overlooking the beautiful fountains of CityPlace.

Striking décor and unique American eclectic menu come together to create a chic vibe in a comfortable eating, drinking and gathering destination. Located in the heart of Chelsea, it is the nightly go-to place for couples, singles, girls-night out, as well as weekend brunch. Thanks to its all-encompassing menu, captivating cocktails, and hip music, Pounds & Ounces is the liveliest scenes in the neighborhood highlighted by its centerpiece, a long alabaster and metal communal table that runs down the center of the space.<br />Groups large and small will enjoy Chef Jeff Kreisel’s homey favorites including Roasted Chicken with a potato-cauliflower purée and rainbow Swiss chard; Pan Roasted Halibut, or Pan Seared Scallops. Lighter fare includes a Housemade Mozzarella & Tomato Salad with heirloom tomatoes and basil pesto garnished with red onion marmalade; Grilled Kale Caesar salad with trevisano, white anchovies, and garlic croutons; and a sweet and savory Watermelon Salad.<br />

One of Manhattan’s rare rooftop eateries, this LESer flaunts 360-degree Downtown Outdoor Scene paired with midpriced New French-American eats; a retractable glass roof makes it an all-seasons affair, and two lounges downstairs are just the thing for after-dinner cocktailing.

Celebrating its 108th Year, Barbetta is the oldest restaurant in New York still owned by its founding family. Barbetta is also New York's oldest Italian restaurant and the oldest restaurant in the Theater District. This three-fold distinction has earned it landmark status by the Locali Storici d'Italia. In a glittering interior decorated with 18th century Italian antiques Barbetta serves the cuisine of Piemonte, Italy's northwestern most region. In summer, its exuberantly verdant garden with century-old trees and scented with the blooms of wisteria, oleander, jasmine and gardenia make it a most sought-after site for al fresco dining. <br />

Contemporary Spanish cuisine by Dani Garcia<br /><br />From the New York Times: "Yann de Rochefort, the owner of the Boqueria tapas bars, has joined with Dani Garcia, a Michelin two-star chef who owns Calima in Marbella, Spain, to create this spacious brasserie-style Spanish restaurant. It has an open kitchen and a look — a zigzag-pattern stone floor and wooden latticework — that channels the decorative motifs of Andalusia, in southern Spain. There’s tomato tartare, smoked octopus, pork belly on brioche, black rice with seafood, suckling pig and a deep list of sherries." - Florence Fabricant
