Chef Luke Wallace prepares seasonal inspired dishes at Tom Colicchio’s casual Flatiron restaurant. The menu features a wide variety of small & large plates from Snacks, House-Made Charcuterie, Salumi, Artisanal Cheeses, Salads as well as Handmade Pastas, all expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The rustic and comfortable dining room lends itself to a quick lunch where guests can try our Croque Monsieur, a full dinner of Choucroute Garnie and Ricotta Ravioli, or a snack of Pecorino Arancini and East Coast Oysters. We are also serving a soul-satisfying brunch with dishes like Pork Scrapple & Eggs and our Applewood Smoked Salmon prepared in-house. Be sure to save room for Pastry Chef, Abby Swain’s creations including her take on the S’mores Tart.

"Ate here with my daughter last week Friday. It was a bit noisy by the bar but they were happy to move us further back into restaurant where it was quieter. The cabocha squash soup was amazing and I enjoyed the kale Caesar salad with real anchovies! The macro plate was quite good but the farro special even better. I will be be back."

"Always liked going to Chat 19 when lived in Westchester, stopped in after some shopping and was not disappointed. They offer creative fare with very nice fish options. I enjoyed the off menu salmon and my daughter a swordfish special. Salmon was overcooked for my taste (server did not ask how I wanted done) but otherwise quite good with bok choy in mustard sauce. Friend had the menu chicken, and enjoyed that. We also shared steamed veg/shrimp appetizer but why the odd number (5)? I would rather they upped the price a bit and made it 6 for this type of shareable appetizer. Anyway, they were pretty good. No room for dessert. I'll likely be back when in neighborhood."

"Mixed reviews made me a bit skeptical but my daughter said they had great food in Kip's Bay so I went to try. I thought it was very good & reasonably priced - some nights I just want some quick sushi for less than $50. Loved the Dragon's Bride roll and the Golden Dragon roll was good as well, the Pad Thai was pretty good although my dining companion allergic to peanuts and I think this dish looses something without peanuts. Had Edamame as appetizer & really couldn't have eaten anything else! It was so good I'm going back tonight."

A La Turka, an Upper East Side restaurant that opened 17 years ago and is now booked every night, thanks to its great food, lively atmosphere and media attention. The restaurant has been featured on Channel 4, showing how to grill kebabs on the roof of Rockefeller Center, as well as how to make salt baked fish and on Fox5 where Dave Price has showcased its Saturday Night kebab buffet, belly dancers and live music. A La Turka offers along with 20 different kebabs like a kebab factory, including chicken, lamb and beef, also Mediterranean fish selections, as Branzini, in a cozy atmosphere that you and your family feels like having an authentic and remarkable dinner in Bosporus, Istanbul.

"Just went last Saturday because I wanted some of their great grilled octopus. It is always wonderful. Love how they prepare & serve with the grilled red onion & tomato. Choban salad is excellent too and I love the pastrami hummus."
