Graze is a restaurant where the food is very fresh, creative, and everchanging. The menu is eclectic in variety from fresh seafood to vegeterian options. Graze is the type of restaurant that you could eat at several times a week.

"Off the beaten trail in Mt Pleasant mall. The restaurant is noted as farm to table. More than just fresh ingredients, the chef combines them for great results. Salads and entrees were equally very good."

"While busy for a Monday night, the restaurant kept the reservation time. Tables are set sufficiently apart that you can carry on a conversation without having to raise your voice. Service was very good. Sizeable portion of Fried Green Tomatoes as an appetizer with roasted catfish as my entrée.
Meal was delicious.

Slightly North of Broad is a Lowcountry bistro that brings together an abundance of local ingredients and thoughtful, expert presentation with a friendly, contagious energy. Here the dining room is a natural extension of the kitchen, a place where culinary skill, a clever, considered wine program, warm service, and conversations meld together. Our local farmers, fishermen and producers are as integral to the food we make as they are to our place in this community.

"My first 5 star. What else can I say. They honored the reservation promptly. Service was excellent. Both dinners were delicious, served hot with ample portions. We had the specialty salads and dessert. I only wish they had a sister restaurant near my home."

Looking for a fresh catch on the West Side? Discover Uncle Nick’s! He was one of the first in the 80's to bring fresh, moderately priced Greek food to Manhattan in family sized portions and has been there ever since. We're not fancy, we don't dim the lights and our dishes are made to eat not admire. But when you’re in the mood for a friendly, festive meal with lots of laughter, good spirits and generous portions of hearty Greek cooking, Uncle Nick's is the place for you. We're especially proud of our selection of dock fresh seafood, but if meats are your love, you won't find finer, more succulent dishes than ours. When you're in the mood to relax, your table is waiting. To Uncle Nick everyone is family and everyone gets the same warm welcome. When you’re in New York but your heart is in Greece, come join us at Uncle Nick's. It's a trip you won't soon forget.

"Standard Greek food done well. No complaints as the dinner for 4 went smoothly from the start to the finish. Our reservation was hoonored even though we arrived a few minutes late due to midtown traffic. Service was fine; food was well prepared and served hot. Just nothing stood out as exceptional. If you're in need of a restaurant prior to an event at Madison Square Garden you should consider dining with Uncle Nick."

The sophisticated and timeless Dining Room offers diners a warm and intimate space to enjoy Chef Daniels inventive seasonal menus. The dining room is divided in to 3 areas, the Wine Salon, the Stage and the Champions Room. The Wine Salon is an elegantly appointed dining area that faces the glass-enclosed wine cellar. The Stage is a raised area, longer than it is wide, facing a full-length wall of beautiful old casement windows. The Champions Room is a private area that can be part of the restaurant flow or cordoned off for privacy.

"Was a little challenging locating this restaurant in the corner of a strip mall but well worth the trouble. Initial service was slow, but after the order was placed, servers brought the dishes at a the right intervals. All items were very fresh with great seasoning. The warm apple salad was delicious as were the duck tacos as an appetizer. My wife had a special of Pad Thai and i had a pasta w/Blognese sauce. both were generous portions."
