Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian brings his vision of a contemporary New York grand café to life at The National Bar & Dining Rooms. Housed in the same 1927 Emery Roth-designed building as The Benjamin Hotel, The National's all-occasion modern bistro offerings satiate guests from breakfast through late night. Modeled after the celebrated grand cafés in Europe, The National is both residential and metropolitan in design and offers thoughtful details such as antiqued mirrors, a bronze spiral staircase, distressed peacock blue and chocolate leather banquettes, classic marble table tops, and black and white glazed-tile flooring.<br /><br />Each Sunday evening from 6pm to 10pm, The National features a lineup of New York City bands performing an array of musical selections such as classic jazz, funk, blues, and more.

"The thougt of attending the restaurant of an Iron Chef is enough to get my mouth watering and maybe my expectations were set to high because things fell a bit short. This wasnt my first time at The National and looking back, it has been a bit of a rollercoaster. A great meal followed by a just ok meal. This meal was just ok. The part that stands out the most was the slow, sub-par service. The place was rather quiet so there was really no excuse. The food was good but forgetful although I'll give credit where its due, the sides we ordered, brussel spouts and mac and cheese were very good. I would give the place another chance and hope for a high......"

"Top chef in a top Manhattan neighborhood, how can you go wrong. Interesting menu of seafood kept our party of 6 busy for a good while. The rolls were fine but stick with the stuff like the mahi tacos and lobster rolls, both excellent. The seafood tower was fresh and the oysters nice and briney. Highlight I think was the Cantonese lobster, really great. The chocolate sphere for dessert was a perfect ending...."

Although many restaurants in the theater district bill themselves as trattorias, few achieve the authentic feel and taste of Maria Pia. This charming Italian eatery boasts comfortable indoor seating for 80, a sun-dappled, 20-seat, rear outdoor garden, and a genial mood that makes the menu that much more savory. The three-course prix fixe menus offer dishes slick enough for savvy palates that still taste as if they were cooked up by mama Maria herself.

"Went on a business lunch and was really impressed with the food. The butternut Squash in Sgae brown butter was really good. large portions for apps and entrees but the service was nonexistent and it wasnt very crowded so you think they would have been more attentive."

Charlie Palmer's signature Progressive American cuisine first took root in the original townhouse location of Aureole, where the chef made an early commitment to farm over factory food. Today, Aureole continues to shine at One Bryant Park under the kitchen leadership of Executive Chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware. Dining at the contemporary Aureole is staged in two venues: the formal Dining Room and more casual Bar Room. In the Dining Room, terra-rich colors and golden lighting combine to create a comfortable environment and opulent warm glow, reminiscent of Aureole’s original townhouse intimacy. Evening guests may select from a 3-course prix fixe or tasting dinner menu. For lunch, a seasonal 3-course prix fixe menu is available as well as a la carte selections. Reservations can be made here for the Dining Room only. To reserve in our more casual bar room, please visit Aureole - Liberty Room. <br /><br />

"It was my second time going, the first was a really great experience, great food and service. I even remember a manager or owner coming over to ask how everything was. This time the food was still great but the service was lacking. Very slow, we even spoke about it at the table how long it was taking to get our first round. It was a Monday night so not as busy as a Thursday. When we left we noticed we were the last table to leave. The staff seemed more annoyed that we were still there than happy to serve us. We passed through the bartender and wait staff and no on even said good night or thanks for coming. I would still go back because the food really is good but I hope this last time was just an off night."
