De Santos is housed in a rustic but chic townhouse in the West Village where you can enjoy Traditional American, International and Mediterranean influenced cuisine from culinary genius Executive Chef Angel Vela. The dark wood and exposed brick dining areas are sexy and cozy. If you're lucky enough to get seated in the downstairs hidden jewel, the Janis, another ambiance will hit your senses as you dine with friends and family, breathing the same air as legends like Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. This secluded speakeasy rock n' roll room is also used for VIP's and larger private parties. The wide marble topped bar is a great place for a cocktail but comfy enough to stay and indulge in a full meal. French doors open to a large outdoor patio with exposed brick archway and awning where, when dining by candlelight you'll feel transported to the Mediterranean. Wednesday through Saturday late hours there's mixed music and surprises. Only at De Santos. Welcome. <br /><br />

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 Coldwater 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."

"I used to visit the west village location but as it closed I came here. This location is uncomfortable, stale, unfriendly and not welcoming. The staff did not know anything and it was a lame dining experience."

Opened in 2001 and located in the heart of downtown, Bread Nolita brings a contemporary and chic take on Italian food. The interior design is modern but with a warm touch. Bread is a destination for locals, tourists and celebrities alike. <br /><br />There is an open kitchen where guests can see the food being prepared, along with a private room in the back that accommodates 12 to 50 people for private parties. The full bar offers a variety of special drinks; and all pastas, breads, and desserts are made in-house.

In the south of France, more precisely in Provence, a cabanon represents an authentic cuisine, usually located in a house's garden, where all the mothers and grandmothers used to cook regional specialties for the entire family and anybody lucky enough to be around at the right place at the right time.<br /><br />The door was always open. Since we had the chance to witness it in our childhood, we wanted to recreate this environment with the same welcoming spirit. So we decided to name our place "OCabanon".<br /><br />“Cave à Manger”, literally means “Cellar to Eat”. In fact, the idea is to bring a nice pairing between wine and food in a cosy place.<br /><br />We want our “Cave à Manger” to be a friendly destination, where anybody can discover love stories between wine and food, share and gossip around a good bottle.

Established in 2006 by Sicilian-born Giusto Priola, this 60-seat enclave is perfect for serving delicious dinner and weekend brunches in its singular Sicilian style. Knowledgeable, first-rate service accompanies impeccable house-made Pastas, traditional Sicilian Caponata, traditional Bucatini con le sarde, and rich Cassata, to name just a few, in an intimate, understatedly elegant dining area. <br />With its prime location and singularly Sicilian flair, ‘Cacio e Vino’ is a dining experience that you need to try and that will be like no other.

We source all our meats from Pino's Prime Meat, located right across the street from Da Marcella since 1903, including the organic free-range chicken in our menu. All our pastas are made with the best durum wheat using the classic bronze dies that leave the surface of the pasta rough and porous to perfectly absorb our slow cooking sauces. At the same time, most of our pastas are organic and very...soon all of them will be. We believe that great food should be affordably priced.<br /><br><br><br />We have a passion for good food and excellent service utilizing the best ingredients. Most importantly we have a love for food, service and quality.<br /><br><br><br />Our philosophy is simple: cook with real food to create unbelievable results. Authentic food, authentic service. You deserve it.<br /><br />WINE and BEER ONLY!

Nougatine is the more casual sister of Jean-Georges, with a very lively bar scene at night. The restaurant attracts a mix of celebrities, socialites, and movers and shakers in the business world. Adjacent to the formal Jean-Georges dining room, Nougatine serves the signature and seasonal dishes of Chef Jean-Georges for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 365 days a year. The menu is more casual than that offered at Jean-Georges but still market driven, utilizing only the freshest and finest ingredients. In addition to providing gorgeous views of Central Park, the newly renovated dining room by Thomas Juul-Hansen features a bustling, immaculate open kitchen. Tones of brown and cream mingle to create an elegant space that is soothing by day and exciting by night. Nougatine offers a prix-fixe lunch menu Monday through Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.
