Located in the heart of Times Square and the Theater District, and walking distance to every Broadway show, this landmark eatery treats you like family and offers up perfect steaks, homemade mozzarella and a fabulous antipasto bar.<br />Bond 45 feels like part of old New York, because it is. The Ziegfeld Follies played on our roof back when the building was the Hammerstein Theater.<br />The New York Post calls Bond 45 “An Italian steakhouse reincarnation of the old Jack Dempsey’s, which already tastes like a long running hit, and Hal Rubenstein of New York Magazine says it: ”Treats [you] like family while executing home-style cooking as solid as my mom’s."

"We were enchanted by the warm, welcoming service at 45 Bond. Just a few steps away from frantic, crazy Times Square there is this gem of a restaurant. As soon as you enter, you are greeted warmly and taken to a lovely table that is just perfect for you. The hostess is professional, friendly and careful to meet your every need. We were served by a terrific waiter who provided excellent suggestions for drinks and dinner. The warm antipasto, and the steak and fish dishes were excellent. The desserts need work and more variety. We will return whenever we are in the area, but not have dessert!"

Avra Estiatorio is a restaurant that transports you to the Greece of your imagination. The sky is vivid blue and the air is drenched with sunlight and the aroma of freshly caught fish grilling over an open fire.

"I met a friend and we had a nice lunch -- good food, pleasant wine, lovely atmosphere and nice service. The grilled squid could have had more flavor and been better cooked with more of a char, but it was nice. The salad was good. Overall the food could use more flavor, but the atmosphere, service and lovely décor make up for it."

Rothmann’s upholds the traditions of the past by serving a classic steakhouse menu with great additions from the present. We serve only the best, USDA Prime Dry-Aged steaks. Inventive daily black board specials with sushi and fresh local fish. A redesigned bar with an expanded whisky and bourbon list should broaden you palate. And our new wine dispensing system that pours 2, 4, or 6 ounce pours of first growth Bordeaux and cult Napa cabernets to perfection. Come experience the grandeur of Long Island’s famed Gold Coast for yourself, where prime dry-aged steaks and great wine have become tradition.

"Come to Rothmann's for a fine red meat meal with great wine. Don't bother with the fish, chicken dishes as they are only okay. Service is excellent, drinks are good -- great variety of liquors and wines. Perfect for a special family occasion."

At MP Taverna, Chef Michael Psilakis introduces his award-winning Greek-American fare to Long Island’s North Shore. Located in the heart of Roslyn, NY, MP Taverna is a modern interpretation of a traditional Greek taverna. Open for Lunch, Dinner & Weekend Brunch, MP Taverna is an exciting addition to the Long Island dining scene. The ground floor houses the main dining room & separate bar, while the second floor is perfect for private dining & events. The dinner menu allows diners to order from an assortment of meze, salads, entrees, & plat du jours. Meze options include Meatballs, Octopus with Mediterranean chickpea salad, & Trio of Greek Spreads, highlights from the salad selection include the MP Salad with lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, onions, & feta. Signature dishes like the Lamb Burger with smashed potato & pickle or Grilled Branzino with fingerlings, cherry tomatoes & olives, are offered together with simply grilled options such as Swordfish, Salmon or Steak & Sausage.

"The food was not up to MP's usual standard. Octopus was served cold, but they kindly reheated it when asked. I find their food just isn't as good as it used to be. The service was good, the manager apologized for the cold octopus. Very attentive service, but just an average meal."

"We really enjoyed our meal at MP Taverna. As always, we love the octopus salad and grilled fish. There were a few service lapses that were fixed by the Manager who is always on the look out to ensure customer service as well as the hostess (she fixed our wobbley table). Our waiter was pleasant and friendly, but not so good on the follow-up -- he forgot to fix our table; and neglected to offer me a vegetable alternative to rice when I asked). Perhaps they have the "B" team serving on Sunday nights. All in all, MP Taverna is a good choice for a nice dinner out and the fish is superb. The crowd was friendly."

"We had Easter brunch at Besito. It was our first visit in years. The food was better than I remembered and the service was excellent. Although the restaurant was empty, they eventually gave us a booth which made it more festive than a regular table for 4. We had a nice meal -- good food and white sangria. However, the table-side guacamole was a little tasteless, but they brought us more cilantro and hot peppers to adjust the taste. Overall, it was fun, good food, and wonderful service in a lovely, trendy setting. So much nicer than a lot of the Roslyn restaurants in terms of décor and service. We will be back soon!"

"I love the setting of this restaurant -- from the fine linen napkins -- to the wood-hewn tables, it is a delight for the senses. Its location in the Chelsea Market (actually you enter from outside) is convenient and trendy. The food which includes many healthy options (e.g., fresh-made juices) is always delicious, though the portions are small. I've enjoyed the salads, soups and meat dishes -- all are excellent. Nice time, I will try the pasta which is their specialty. The service is prompt, but they can lose track of you after you get your plate. The place is noisy when the crowds descend, so try to get there early if you want to have a real conversation over your exceptional food."

"We had a lovely experience as a group of friends and family for early Saturday dinner before our show at the Public Theater. The service was prompt and attentive. The place is just lovely. Our mixed drinks were delicious; the prixe fixe dinner allowed us to explore a range of dishes and everyone enjoyed what they had. We will surely be back. Everyone raved about it the day after. Always a good sign!"
