Devi, signifying "goddess" in the Indian language, showcases the celebrated pan Indian cuisine in its modern avatar and was the first ever Indian restaurant to get a Michelin star in the United States. The team of Kunal Lamba (GM and Culinary Director) and Chef Dheeraj Tomar is a direct import from New Delhi just like the dining room artifacts. The restaurant is designed with wood and marble brought from India and touched with vibrant color that invites guests to experience an atmosphere both elegant and whimsical.

"This is a nice go-to Indian place, with well-made and well-presented food. The service is lacking, unfortunately: you will often find yourself wondering if the waiter has forgotten you, and whether it will be possible to get your water refilled. No good excuse for this in a half full restaurant."

Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from Northern Greece to create a menu of spreads, breads, vegetables and other small plates, including his signature wood-grilled octopus. Two wood-fire grills with rotating spits and a large oven for stone-baked flat breads service the 160-seat restaurant. Guests enjoy carvings from whole animals that have been spit-roasted all day, including lamb, goat, duck, chicken, and suckling pig. Kapnos is open for dinner seven nights a week.

Chef and owner Frank Crispo opened Crispo Restaurant in the heart of Chelsea and the West Village in the summer of 2002. <br /><br />Our 150 seats create a lively, warm and friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy our signature Northern Italian cuisine. <br /><br />We were nominated in 2002 for "Best New Restaurant" by Time Out magazine, and received an award for "Best Spaghetti Carbonara" by New York Magazine in 2004. <br /><br />Food is not our only passion. Our extensive wine list covers the major regions of Italy and several other countries beyond. For enthusiasts, we have a full bar stocked with grappa, amaros, aperitifs and digestifs.<br /><br />Come join us for dinner in our main dining room, or in our outdoor garden space. It remains open year long. With this newest addition to Crispo Restaurant you will truly feel like you are not in New York.

"We enjoyed dinner in the back garden at Crispo, a lovely spot with enough noise to allow private conversation, but not so loud as to be a problem. The mozzarella risotto balls, and the cheesecake dessert were good, but nothing extraordinary -- but the pork shank and the gnocchi verde were both very, very good. Service left us waiting a bit longer than I expected at times."
