Le Colonial is a truly delightful culinary experience. Like stepping into French Colonial Southeast Asia, this two-story restaurant, designed by Greg Jordan, consists of a main dining room with louvered wall panels, colorful tile floors, and vintage photos of Vietnam. Upstairs is an elegant, but lively, lounge serving a full dinner or just appetizers and cocktails. The lounge serves as an ideal setting for private parties and business dinners. Chef Ronald Wingwee Hsu serves an authentic Vietnamese menu with an emphasis on fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables.

"This was our first time dining at Le Colonial. We decided to try it because of restaurant week. It was outstanding! We were greeted warmly as if we were regular diners. Our departure was just as attentive and warm. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. The rest of the staff was also professional. The food was outstanding-beautifuly presented and generous portions, as well as delicious. We are looking forward to returning."

Le Bistro D’à Côté, is a neighborhood French Bistro located on Manhattan's Upper East Side/Yorkville. Recently opened and fast becoming a favorite hang out for the locals. The atmosphere is cozy, warm and casual. Whether you are coming in for a drink and a bite to eat, a romantic dinner or a large group, there is something for everyone here. There is a room for parties, as well as a separate bar from the dining area. Chef Herve Knecht has created a menu with classic bistro fare like Escargots, Charcuterie, Mussels, Coq au Vin and Foie Gras to mention a few. Prices are moderate and special menus offer a deal on certain nights. THE BROC HEMPEL TRIO's Live Jazz adds to the ambiance of LBDC on Thursdays from 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM on Sundays Brunch from 12 noon to 3 PM.

"This was our first time at this restaurant. We were looking for brunch with friends at a restaurant which would be equa-distant for us. We were not disappointed. We all had the hangover brunch which was outstanding. The quantity and quality did not disappoint. The owner was a delight. His staff was attentive but not intrusive. We will return."

Vivolo, the family name, long associated with fine dining and Italian cuisine, is located at 140 east 74th street, New York. Vivolo, established in 1977 by owner Angelo Vivolo, is nestled in a charming 1875 townhouse occupying two floors. <br><br>You enter into a rich English redwood paneled dining room and antique oak bar with a working fireplace. Ceilings beamed with dark wood create an overall intimate, friendly and romantic atmosphere. A "café" alcove offers several secluded tables or the perfect setting for dinners for 10. <br><br>The second floor of Vivolo has the look of a turn-of-the-century parlor with a gold leaf trimmed ceiling and working fireplace. The parlor floor is also a favorite for private parties.

"Vivolo never disappoints. The food and service are always reliable. Many patrons are regulars. Those who aren't regulars often see what we have ordered and strike up a conversation about he food and appetizing presentation. We are always happy to talk to our table neighbors about this restaurant."

Maloney & Porcelli is a clubby new American restaurant that draws inspiration from a simpler time when three martini lunches were alive and well, steak was for dinner, and servers anticipated guests’ every need, even completing dishes tableside. Begin meals at Maloney & Porcelli with a selection of shellfish, salads or favorites such as Baked Clams Orsini, Peekytoe Crabcake, or Steak Tartare that is finished tableside. For the main course, there is a choice of steaks and shanks, including the famed Crackling Pork Shank with Firecracker Applesauce, lobsters and composed options such as Chicken Under a Brick, Pan-Seared Atlantic Salmon, or Beef Shortrib Stroganoff. An array of inventive sides complete the meal, like Gruyere Soufflé, Fried Herb Tater Tots, Broccoli and Pimento Cheese. The desserts inspire nostalgia with a individual red velvet cake served, grasshopper pie for two, and a selection of house-made sorbets, sherbets and ice creams.

"The food and service at this restaurant are top notch. However, if you are looking for a quiet dinner, don't go to this restaurant. The noise level can be bothersome if you want to have dinner conversation."
