"La Mirabelle accommodated our large party (10) with ease and warmth. We covered the menu, from the sole to the rack of lamb, and every dish was excellent (seafood -- sole, shrimp, scallops -- is always fresh and treated appropriately with garlic and herbs). Rounds of Crepes Suzette made for a festive finish."

"We had a well-timed dinner before Lincoln Center. Our server knew the menu -- the soup special was well-received , as was her suggestion for a side of Brussels Sprouts to accompany pasta entrees. Dinner was paced to fit the time without rushing and allowing us to make the curtain comfortably. As for the entrees -- the cavatelli with short rib ragu is delicious and ranks as first order comfort food. And the portion's sufficient but not overwhelming. Black tagliatelle with shrimp presents a great blend of flavors, appropriately spiced."

Chef Marc Murphy and his wife, Pamela Schein Murphy, bring their downtown neighborhood bistro uptown to the Time Warner Center. Landmarc offers contemporary bistro dishes as well as a famously well-priced wine list.

"Excellent for a business breakfast. The menu runs the gamut of tastes; the coffee is great. The staff is attentive without hovering. And, most important, the room is quiet for those who would like an early meeting where discussion can actually occur."

The last of its kind near 42nd Street, Chez Josephine is a neighborhood gem founded in 1986 by Jean-Claude Baker as a tribute to legendary Josephine Baker. This Parisian bistro offers live piano music and a tantalizing menu in an intimate setting of red velvet walls, a cavalcade of chandeliers and a blue-tin ceiling. Guests receive a warm welcoming and are treated as family whether coming before a show, after the show, for a leisurely dinner in-between, or a drink at the zinc bar.<br /><br />Chez Josephine draws a crowd unlike any other in New York as food critic Bryan Miller noted when he wrote: “The dining room is a confluence of the famous and the fashionable, the infamous and unsung – with every shade of skin on earth – and indeed you feel the magic of Chez Josephine.”<br />

A Livanos' family creation, Molyvos is the closest you can get to Greece in New York City. Critics agree that Molyvos serves perhaps the finest example of Greek cuisine in New York, and beyond. People from around the world have discovered that Molyvos serves the true foods and wines of Greece, along with a large dose of the country’s warm and lively spirit. Molyvos’ menu is built upon the home-style cooking of Greece using authentic recipes, classical cooking techniques and superior ingredients. The wine list, under the keen direction of Kamal Kouiri, is unique for its depth and breadth of excellent Greek labels and small producers from the Mediterranean whose wine deserves to be enjoyed. Molyvos also boasts a carefully selected Pre and Post-theatre menu that perfectly accompanies an evening of entertainment.

"We have dined at Molyvos many times, but this was our first visit for brunch. The prix fixe had delicious and varied options, and (with a cocktail, start and entree) was also a bargain. We added a selection to spreads to share on top of that, and all at the table were quite pleased."

Conveniently located across from Lincoln Center and a startling revelation in shiny black lacquer, Shun Lee exudes Asian chic with grand authority.<br>For haute Chinese cuisine, it’s among New York City’s best. Regional offerings include crispy Grand Marnier prawns with honey walnuts (Canton), braised sea bass in hot bean sauce (Hunan) and shredded beef with leeks and hot peppers (Szechwan). Specialties include beggar’s chicken baked in lotus leaves and clay (requires one day’s notice), Hunan tripe, sweetbreads with black mushrooms and of course, Beijing Duck.

"We had a limited time-window pre-theater, and very good service made it all work. All in our small party thought the food was excellent, and one order of sorbet for the table gave the meal an excellent finish. The one drawback was the table itself; we have been to The Smith many times, but with the very back room allocated for a private party, the remaining tables seemed more squeezed together than has been usual (the servers navigated tight quarters admirably). So -- excellent food, but crowded surroundings at least on this night."

Nestled on the Upper West Side, Turkuaz is a fusion between authentic Turkish cuisine and Mediterranean flavors, served in an ethnic ambiance. Turkuaz opened in the fall of 2000 with a vision of creating Upper West Side's finest authentic Turkish cuisine experience. Ever since, our unique decor and friendly servers have hosted many pleasant evenings, lunches and brunches. Turkuaz is as close as you can get to an escape.

"The mezes to start were excellent -- get anything with eggplant. The mains -- which, in our group ranged over the dumplings, stuffed cabbage, and kebabs were all excellent and we happily traded tastes around the table. Service was a trifle slow at the start, but the host volunteered a complimentary baklava. Those who had intended to skip the sweet were quite pleased to have that dessert indulgence forced on them. Delicious."

"Our table covered different aspects of the menu, and all were well received. Pasta with the short rib ragu; trout schnitzel; brick-pressed chicken; swordfish; the bar steak. Tastes were traded around approvingly, followed by self-made promises to get next time what some other person was having now. Service was attentive and helpful. The room's a bit noisy and the tables can be tight but for before Lincoln Center it's very, very good."
