Manon is a modern American restaurant and bar in the heart of Meatpacking District. The menu presents locally-sourced, seasonal fare by Executive Chef Tae Strain and offers comforting favorites that reflect Chef Strain’s worldly culinary inspirations. <br /><br />Manon spans three floors with the main dining room at the top, a bar and lounge at street level, and a mezzanine in between for admiring the scenes above and below. The interior incorporates baroque style elements with an industrial feel that pays homage to the Meatpacking District and New York City. <br /><br />

"wide range of options for restaurant week; the full menu looked great too. service was a bit lacking, our waiter only took one drink order and by the time he came around the second time they were about to bring out dessert. otherwise, it was good. very trendy place that's trying to give a very Meatpacking vibe, but they pull it off."

Blue Water Grill, a Zagat favorite year over year, is a seafood and sushi dining destination in the heart of Union Square. Loyal guests and visitors alike are drawn to the former Metropolitan Bank space with chandeliers that illuminate the bi-level dining room, a café perfect for people-watching and a lower level lounge and dining room with live music 7 nights a week. The menu highlights the freshest seafood daily, with innovative offerings at the Sushi Bar and composed dishes coming out of the kitchen. Blue Water Grill is also known for Sunday Brunch overlooking the Union Square Greenmarket.

"it's hard to know where to begin but we had originally planned to do restaurant week and promptly threw out that idea once we saw the Seafood Tower. it was all downhill after that, we got four different dishes and shared bits and pieces of each (salmon, swordfish, seared tuna and branzino). everything was cooked to perfection, and dessert was out of this world. will definitely be returning at some point!"

We'll always have Paris in Bryant Park. Cozily situated behind landmark New York Public Library, Bryant Park serves as a stunning backdrop for this New American Grill & Cafe. Bryant Park Grill's elegant & sophisticated dining room is perfect for your business lunch or a night out on the town with friends. Enjoy a romantic dinner or a festive party under Bryant Park's heated holiday tent in the winter, while seasonal patio & roof dining are sure to make your summer evenings magical. For more casual dining, visit Bryant Park Cafe next door or just hang out at the Cafe Bar. <br /><br />The New York Times says that Bryant Park has become one of Manhattans loveliest public spaces, that has open air Bryant Park Cafe for casual dining and Bryant Park Grill for serious meals. The Grill is a gorgeous pavilion with a Hunt Slonem mural of birds stretching along one side of the dining room.

Multi-Level Italian Restaurant offering two private dinning areas, outdoor seating and an intimate low ceiling bar.<br />Painted white and blue with dark wood and chrome accents, the space suggests a small yacht cruising around the Isle of Capri.

Welcome to Toloache (pronounced toh-lo-AH-tchay), chef-owner Julian Medina’s contemporary Mexican bistro located in Greenwich Village. Toloache is named after a flowering plant famed in Mexico for its use in love potions. We hope that when you dine with us you too will fall under the spell of chef Medina’s creative cooking, which incorporates seasonal and natural ingredients and more than a dozen types of chilies. Our festive, two-story space features a guacamole and ceviche bar and an exceptional tequila list, along with elegant decorative elements imported from Mexico. We're looking forward to seeing you soon.

"great place to go and get a bunch of tapas to share with a group... the chef's signature dishes are all amazing. tilapia and steak tacos were spectacular and the ceviche was like nothing I have ever had before. Compliments to the chef!"
