An American Restaurant & Bar at the Jade Hotel Greenwich Village.<br /><br />Grape & Vine is a vibrant American restaurant and bar serving artisanal, market-driven fare in an elegant, cosmopolitan setting reminiscent of 1920's speakeasy. <br /><br />A little history: The original Grape & Vine (the Grapevine) was located on the southeast corner of Sixth Avenue and 11th Street. It attracted artists, actors, litterateurs, businessmen and politicians. The Grapevine was such a gathering spot of conversation, that the phrase “I heard it through the grapevine” originated here. (It derives it's name from the fact that a grapevine used to cover the 11th Street side of the tavern.)<br /><br />

Chef Partner Julian Medina and restaurant group YB & Co introduce Christopher Gilman and their newest Latin hot spot, YerbaBuena Perry. Located at One Perry Street in Manhattan's West Village. YerbaBuena Perry is a chic 55-seater that stirs up an era gone by-1950's Cuba. The restaurant features Julian Medina's reinterpreted Cocina Latina cuisine complemented by signature cocktails, many made with Yerba Buena, a latin mint. <br /><br />YerbaBuena Perry transports guests from the West Village to an exclusive club in Havana with a feel that is retro yet chic and sophisticated. Designer Welly Lai outfitted the space with floral wall coverings in sea foam hues and leather banquettes, setting a mood of elegance. The restaurant's focal point is an expansive hand-carved bar with an Italian marble top. <br /><br />Julian Medina's cusine evokes Peru, Cuba, Argentina, Colombia, México and Spain. Yerba Buena Perry's menu includes Ceviches, Tacos, and Parrillada, an Argentine mixed Grill.

Abboccato, meaning “a touch of sweetness,” will feature a menu that reflects the true appetites of Italy. Owned by The Livanos Family, Abboccato will provide a taste and experience similar to that of authentic restaurants in Italy. Anyone looking for that unique Italian flavor will find themselves at home when dining at Abboccato. <br /><br /> The 75-seat restaurant serves true and time-honored Italian recipes elevated through the talent and techniques of executive chef David Arias, and features a multitude of Italian products and ingredients. <br /><br /> Abboccato offers a selection of Chiccetti, small plates for sharing, which encourage a lively dining experience. Plentiful pasta fill out the Primi Piatti options and fresh Artic Char, Lamb Chops, Whole Branzino and even Veal Sweetbreads make up the savory Secondi Piatti list. <br /><br />In addition to the savory Italian cuisine, Abboccato’s dessert menu allows diners to end their meal as elegantly as they started it.

Since 1965, Joe Allen has been a quintessential New York restaurant serving a classic American menu in the heart of the Theater District. Just two blocks from Times Square, it has been a favorite of Broadway performers, locals, and tourists for almost 50 years.<br /><br />Please note that we begin taking reservations 7 days in advance. Parties of 6 or more should call the restaurant directly.<br /><br />Due to the high volume of reservations we receive for pre- and post-theater, we can only guarantee a table for a maximum of two hours. If you would like more time, please contact the restaurant directly to make your reservation.

"Since we live in the neighborhood we had high hopes for this place. The good thing is the decor is very appealing. Unfortunately, the food was terrible. The pizza was soggy. The pasta was so salty we couldn't eat it. And our server was very obnoxious! We will definitely not be returning!"

The West Bank Cafe has been serving exceptional American Fare and an award winning wine list to our neighbors and NYC visitors for over 35 years. The sophisticated, yet relaxed ambiance is enhanced by our special connection to New York's theater community, making it the perfect destination for a before or after-show meal. Our comfortable interior includes the Laurie Beechman Theatre, a 100-seat performance and private party space underneath the restaurant. We hope to see you soon!.

"If you don't mind the noise it's a great place. Sometimes you can't hear the people you're dining with but other than that it's pretty perfect!"
