When Shinbashi originally opened in 1974 waitresses wearing traditional clothing served the then novel sushi and traditional Japanese dishes. Shinbashi became popular amongst Japanese businessmen visiting New York and the restaurant was reviewed in the New York Times by Ruth Reichi in 1998 calling it "venerable Japanese." The new incarnation is following in the tradition of attracting Japanese guests but does so in a modern setting. The restaurant remains streamlined and cleanly lit so as to showcase the food. Quality of fish and presentation are of the highest standard and it is this attention to detail that is carried into the attentive service. Shinbashi offers an environment for you to appreciate your meal at the pace you choose and the space to enjoy your conversation.

"Superbly fresh sushi, presented artfully, in a room that allows for conversation. Nothing else needed for a lunch that satisfies the palate in an environment that allows the table guests really to talk with each other."

Tenpenny’s large wooden doors lead guests to the tucked away eatery, which offers cozy respite just steps away from the bustle of Madison Avenue. Tenpenny’s de´cor radiates warmth, with exposed brick walls, floors made of 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood and custom-built walnut tables. Photos of iconic Manhattan buildings and construction sites now adorn the perimeter of the restaurant in addition to a large mural of the Brooklyn Bridge paying tribute to Old New York City; the place where deals were brokered over martinis and the maitre d’s were a constant presence in the dining room. The new restaurant brings back that intimate dining experience with seating for 55 people. Tenpenny can also accommodate up to 90 standing guests for an event.<br />

"Very good food for a midtown lunch IF one has time to spare for a relaxing 90 minutes. Black linguine is excellent; frilled fish is always well prepared. The need to augment with "sides" makes it a little pricey, but that can be warranted for a special lunch."

Nestled under “The Bean” in Millennium Park and along Michigan Avenue you’ll find Park Grill, an American Bistro serving cuisine with Chicago flair, breathtaking views, and unique happenings throughout the year. <br /><br />In the warm months our Plaza opens, where diners can enjoy live music and the open air in this al fresco eatery. During winter the Millennium Park ice rink comes to life in front of Park Grill, which allows guests to watch skaters while enjoying their meal. <br /><br />Let Park Grill host your next gathering in the heart of the city. We have unique accommodations for groups as intimate as 10 or as large as 300. Our cozy indoor areas and tented outdoor space allow for a customizable event experience that’s sure to be unforgettable.

"The salads (in particular arugula and asparagus) and flatbreads (in particular the mushroom pizza) were actually excellent; the regular pasta (tortellini with spinach and ricotta (billed as a special) and linguine carbonara) were pedestrian. Service was attentive, but not hovering, and very friendly. The location, in Millennium Park, is very convenient to whatever sights one might want to see in downtown Chicago."

Croton Reservoir Tavern has become a popular midtown lunch, dinner and after work gathering spot. Featuring a wondrous hand painted 150 sq foot mural of the reservoir in all its glory, dining at the Croton Reservoir Tavern allows you to enjoy a palpable turn of the century New York experience. The tavern’s 50 foot oak bar, brass studded leather chairs, wrought iron railings and leather banquet seating lay the backdrop for warmth and good cheer. Modern American cuisine and NYC’s most popular drinks are prepared to the highest of standards and served with relaxed charm and cheerful attentive service. Croton’s comfortable and casual atmosphere along with it's vibrant social scene, quality dining and special event hosting has made it one of New York’s most popular destinations.

"Excellent midtown spot for a mid-day business lunch. The food's quite good. The only drawbacks are that sound levels are a little energetic and table space can be a little cramped, but those are minor in the overall picture."
