"Walk in and be welcomed as an old friend. Sit down to a wonderful meal, usually opened with a tiny portion of a wonderful cold soup no matter what you order. The food is fantastic. The service impeccable. It is an occasion no matter what the occasion."

Restaurateurs Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato brought their love for French culture and cuisine to New York City by giving the Big Apple an authentic slice of France when they opened Brasserie Cognac de Monsieur Ballon in April 2008. The Brasserie style menu combines French classics. Guests can choose to dine in the outdoor sidewalk café, classic main dining room, lively bar/lounge or the private Cognac Room as they enjoy meals complimented by over 85 varieties of cognac and a gorgeous wine list including first-growth Bordeaux and Burgundies and an extensive wine by the glass list.

"A small restaurant but not small on its offerings or the caliber of the food. There are so many choices that it is necessary to return to try other dishes.
The wine list, although not large, offers some good choices. A wonderful restaurant with good service and wonderful food.

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.

"The food is good but the noise level is deafening. Shouting to be heard by dining companions."
