San Marino is one of the newest additions, a family oriented restaurant located in the heart of Soho. The freshest ingredients, homemade pastas and variety entrees like chicken veal, fish rack of lamb are some of the dishes you can expect at this eatery. San Marino was first established in 2002 at its financial district location, 15 gold street, where the owner Sammy Gashi worked since 1998. After their second location in Staten Island, San Marino settled in its current location in 66 Charlton street serving quality food and excellent service. We serve lunch and dinner as well as catering to large and small parties. We thank you for choosing San Marino Ristorante. Grazie.

El Parador Café was founded in 1959; it is the oldest and most authentic Mexican restaurant in New York, celebrating its 50th year in business. Carlos Jacott launched the original establishment, first located on 2nd Avenue and 31st Street. The restaurant has been lauded for having the best Margaritas by The New York Press and the best Ceviche by The New York Times.<br /><br />The torch has now been passed onto Jose "Alex" Alejandro, a 1994 graduate of The French Culinary Institute, who continues to grow the restaurant’s following by offering an excellent menu, world class bar & lounge and warm atmosphere.<br /><br />El Parador is dedicated to culture and hospitality. Many of the customers, dubbed “El Paradorians,” first met each other at the restaurant.<br /><br />The wonderful ambiance and cuisine has made El Parador Cafe NYC's favorite Mexican Restaurant, voted #1 by Open table and, once again, named a Bib Gourmand winner by the Michelin Guide for great value.

Jane is a casual American bistro located between Greenwich Village and Soho. Since April 2001, neighborhood regulars and destination diners alike flock to Jane for its value-priced brunch, lunch and dinner menus. Jane also serves as an ideal location for private events, from business dinners to baby showers.<br /><br />At Jane, the menu showcases an affinity for local ingredients with what New York magazine calls “cleverly tweaked but unpretentious American cuisine.” To complement the food, Jane offers a hand-selected, extensive wine list and seasonally driven cocktails.<br /><br />Jane is the sister restaurant to The Smith East Village, The Smith Lincoln Center and The Smith Midtown. <br />

The romantic Milieu of Cuba effortlessly transports you from Manhattan to Havana. Cuba offers live music and a menu filled with delicious traditional cuisine. The restaurant offers a fascinating and charming escape to its own "Little Havana on Thompson Street".

"I enjoy myself every time I dine here and they make the best gazpacho I have ever had. Of course I should have known it wouldn't be on the menu in November, instead I had a delicious butternut squash soup. Our party had the crispy red snapper, arroz con pollo, skirt steak and peruvian corn- all amazing.
Wonderful service and atmosphere, I highly recommend a visit.

Estancia 460 reflects the Italian and Spanish culinary influences in Argentina. From the extra thin crusted pizzas, pastas, sizzling shrimp and grilled fish, paella and grass-fed beef to the wine list that is diverse with offerings from South America, Spain, Portugal and Italy. Estancia translates as a ranch house and the restaurant emulates that with its white washed brick walls, high ceilings, wooden tables and chairs. The crowd feels like an extended family which many come to dine with large groups to enjoy the Parillada, a mixed grill of meats, or for romantic dinners. Estancia has been feeding the locals and Tribeca celebs since 1995 and has developed an extended family outside the neighborhood that choose us as their "go to" place for hearty unpretentious fare in a low key and intimate setting. Come and enjoy our sultry Latin sound track and start off with a Latin Manhattan and end your night with crepes and dulce de leche!

Derived from the Hindi word meaning passion, Junoon delivers on the promise of its moniker with an authentic, yet elegantly modern take on Indian cuisine. Restaurateur Rajesh Bhardwaj, inspired by his deep affinity and commitment to the food and culture of his native India, has assembled a talented team, who share his same vision including celebrated chef and cookbook author, Vikas Khanna, helming Junoon's kitchen as Executive Chef. <br /><br />Don't forget to peak into Junnon's one-of-a-kind Spice Room where an array of fresh spices are ground daily and made into a unique blend to be used in the marinades and sauces for the day.

"This is truly upscale Indian dining, nothing like the restaurants on Curry Hill. The service was outstanding and there were menu items I've never seen anywhere else. The desserts were off the hook. If you're a fan of Indian cuisine you must try it."
