Circus Restaurant has been serving fine Brazilian cuisine for over 17 years. While the menu stays true to their family's recipes, there is a sophistication to each dish.

Quality Italian is a modern interpretation of the Italian-American Steakhouse. Overseen by executive chef Scott Tacinelli, the kitchen updates classic steakhouse fare creating modern interpretations with Italian accents. The 200-seat restaurant, owned and operated by Fourth Wall Restaurants, was designed by AvroKO and references the Butcher's Guilds of Italy, responsible for the finest cuts of meat in Italy.

With the successful move of Tocqueville, owners Marco Moreira and Jo-Ann Makovitzky set about re-inventing the restaurant's original space with the help of acclaimed architect Richard Bloch. Reborn as 15 East, the restaurant serves contemporary Japanese cuisine and traditional sushi in an elegant, comfortable setting. Online reservations are for the dining room only. For reservations at the sushi bar please call the restaurant directly.

"I've tried their Omakase sushi and kitchen prepared dishes. Their sushi was fantastic. I can't say the same about their kitchen prepared dishes. The pork belly and black cod were good but not impressive. I thought the cod was a bit fishy. The uni risotto was great except some of the risotto wasn't even cooked enough. Mineoka dessert was good. I didn't care for the brown sugar sauce but my boyfriend loved it."

Tori Shin is Not your ordinary grilled chicken definitely not your usual Japanese restaurant. Bincho-tan(charcoal) yakitori, organic chicken, fine sake and sho-chu. In NewYork, there are a growing number of Yakitori restaurants, but Tori Shin stays true to it's roots, and true to the art. Tori Shin is the only bonafide yakitoriya (chicken griller) with over 40 different unique chicken skewers offered. And Tori Shin remains the only yakitoriya directly linked to a highly-respected, and successful yakitoriya in Tokyo, Japan.<br />We are proud and grateful of compliments from our Japanese patrons as being true-to style of the Tokyo food culture scene, but our dream was to share this Tokyo experience with others. Since the beginning, our mission was to promote the most authentic, Tokyo stile yakitori experience, using the highest quality ingredients, hence the name Tori Shin: True chicken. Seatings are mainly at the counter, with cook performances.

"Usually I'm very happy with their service...unfortunately this night, they served all the food practically at once... and took away my favorite dish before I was finished with it. Hopefully it was just a one time thing...and not a sign of decline in their quality of service."

Crave Fishbar is a vibrant, convivial restaurant in Midtown Manhattan serving an inspired seafood menu from chef Todd Mitgang. An eclectic mix of reclaimed materials and custom made chairs and tables lend a beachy, rustic feel to the space, which houses a 25-foot-long bar where guests can order from the full dinner menu along with cocktails and wine from a mounted bottle display. Approachable, sophisticated dishes feature local seafood, crudos, and meat dishes that are thoughtfully prepared with both familiar and exotic ingredients. Crave Fishbar has taken its place as a neighborhood fixture, providing locals and newcomers alike with a elegant, inviting experience.

Located in the heart of SoHo, Hundred Acres offers a welcome respite for guests to enjoy a simple, delicious meal in a casual environment. Hundred Acres presents rustic American cuisine, crafted daily based on the market's freshest selections. Whether a salad of market vegetables served in a large wooden bowl or a grilled pork steal. Equally as affordable as the menu itself, Hundred Acres' wine program and selection of American micro-brews, served in 20 oz. bottles, complete the restaurant's accessible nature and sense of community. <br />
