Greenwich Project is located at 47 West 8th Street between Sixth Avenue and MacDougal Street. The intimate and chic 74-seat townhouse offers two experiences under one roof, allowing diners to frequent Greenwich Project for any occasion. Greenwich Project offers a robust menu of Contemporary American dishes with appetizers like the “Odd Couple,” with sweetbreads, wild burgundy snails, bacon, roasted garlic and Fideo Squid Ink with head on prawn and pimenton aioli. Guests can enjoy entrees like the Halibut “En Croute,” with brioche, cauliflower and blood orange grenobloise and the Roasted Rack of Colorado Lamb with chickpea, eggplant chutney, orange and cumin. Downstairs, the warm brick-walled room features a sleek white bar with burnt-orange colored banquets and a rotating roster of artwork. The upstairs level houses plush and cozy coffee-colored banquets, well-spaced tables, low-lit chandeliers and white-washed brick add to the room’s exclusive feel.

"Read the menu on Open Table and it sounded very interesting. It did not disappoint. We went for brunch. The food was excellent and the variety and selection of creative concoctions made it a tough choice to decide. All was as good as it looked. It's a bit "trendy" for my personal taste, but on the other hand, the service was very warm and friendly --and did not match the décor (that is a positive statement!!). I will go back next time I am in the neighborhood"

"I did not realize that Cafe Dupont is actually inside of a hotel, so I was very pleasantly suprised by how much I enjoyed it. Hotel resteraunts are not usually my gig. Everting about it is "right". Prompt and courteos service --the kind that is always around when you need them, but never in your face. GREAT menu selection. Unusual selections for brunch and all at our table though foood was great. Very nice ambiance. Sophisticated but not cold or stuffy. It hits ALL of the checks in all of the boxes and makes it all look easy. I would actually give the otel a try based on the quality of this resteraunt. Can't provide a better recommendation than that one :-)"

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar features Nuevo Cubano cuisine by two-time James Beard award-winning Chef Guillermo Pernot. Pernot's menus feature tantalizing tastes that are derived from the exotic island"s culinary traditions, which include Spanish, African, Creole and Asian influences. The restaurant's atmosphere transports guests to Old Havana circa the 1950s. One-of-a-kind millwork and architectural salvage including unique doors, gates, cabinetry, furniture and accessories help capture the essence of old Cuban architecture. Colorful exotic foliage and large potted palm trees add to Cuba Libre's open-air, tropical ambiance. Featuring a selection of over 70 rums, Cuba Libre's uniquely refreshing house specialty, the mojito, is made from the authentic Cuban recipe of combining rum, fresh lime juice, fresh mint leaves, a splash of soda and most distinctively, guarapo, sugar cane juice pressed daily on site.

"Food, Service, environment -- the best ever. The reception was a bit antisceptic (host) but once seated -- WOW - what a great plate. We were there during Restauraund Week and the menu was a choice of two Tapas each, a main course, and then you both get BOTH deserts for something like 35 bucks. Top that off with some of the most creative and delicius Ciaparinheas (serious spelling mishap there) and you have got a date made in heaven. We will be talking about our experience here for a long time to come. And it was so unexpected. We had no idea of what we had found in finding Cuba Libre."

Belga cafe is a great place to eat typical Belgian cuisine. Combining an intriguing atmosphere with excellent, light and healthy interesting food. Belga Cafe is a little bit of Brussels on the Hill, with an open kitchen and a sidewalk cafe.

"Just look at the menu on OT.com. I sure could not resist. We were welcomed (actually not at all) by the coldest host you have ever seen. Our waited was a bit warmer, but one of those servers you need to ask three times for him to actually get it for you. My waffle with cinnomen apple compote was the size lf a large "wafflt fry", hearvy as lead, with four (yes -- you could count them) slices of the smallest apple I had ever seen with some raisings cooked down. I could not eat the waffle - it was so heavy and tought Hubby had some kind of eggs with basil and spinach an it lookied like a green of guacomole on an english muffin. Green eggs --no ham. Just really disappointed in this one."
