83 ½ is best described as a labor of love. A love of a family, friends and most importantly, food. Owner Vincenzo Mangiafridda, a twenty-year restaurant veteran of the Upper East Side, wanted to open a restaurant that spoke to his deep Sicilian roots. In 83 1/2, his vision has become reality. Chef David Pereg has created a menu of memorable Italian dishes including silky pastas, inventive antipasti, and delicious entrees. <br /> Above all, it’s Vincenzo’s love of people that makes 83 ½ what it is: a warm, welcoming place where friends and families share their passion for food and familiar faces. We can’t wait for your family to meet ours. <br />

"I highly recommend the Orechiette dish. The pasta was prepared perfectly. The scallop dish was also flavorful and the scallops were tender. The chef came out to ask if we enjoyed our food, and genuinely seemed to care. The service was excellent. I recommend this venu. They just started brunch, and am looking forward to checking that out."

Angus' Cafe Bistro is a one hundred-sixty seat, full-service eatery located in the heart of New York City's bustling Times Square. Given its proximity to several Broadway theaters, the pre-show dinner seating is the restaurant's busiest, but before or after is the time to take advantage of the restaurant's charm for either a relaxing lunch or dinner without the pressure of an impending curtain. Additionally, the restaurant offers several attractive features including a bargain prix fixe lunch menu, an irresistible late night snack menu and the house specialty: a porterhouse steak for two which includes unlimited wine by the glass if you order it after 8pm. Brunch is served all weekend long and private parties/special events of all shapes and sizes are willingly and expertly accommodated.

"We ordered four different tapas. Each dish was delicious. The lamb skewers were succulent. The grilled calamari was grilled perfectly. The shrimp with bacon was very flavorful. The chorizo empanada was savory, not at all greasy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone who loves a tapas menu."

A royal feast awaits you at Re Sette, transporting guests to another era with exquisite design and elegant Southern Mediterranean cuisine. Downstairs, the 1,800-square-foot restaurant offers seating in an intimate dining room, lounge and bar. Guests enjoy a grand entrance, with a vaulted ceiling and long mahogany bar that features an expansive menu of grappa, the favored drink of Italian kings. The designs regal influences are seen throughout and conjure an opulent time: jewel-toned tapestry-covered chairs dimly lit ornate candelabras and deep Naugahyde banquettes against brick red textured walls.

"The service was outstanding. The staff was friendly and very attentive. Our food choices were delicious. The veal was tender and very flavorful. The other dishes we ordered were prepared perfectly. We were too full for dessert, as the portions were generous."

"The food was delicious; very flavorful. My only complaint is that a table of loud children was seated right next to us (a couple), when other tables were available. Otherwise, the service and staff were excellent."

A Sundance Resort Restaurant opened in 1995 by Robert Redford, Zoom exudes a vibrant communal atmosphere where good food and conversation are celebrated as art forms. Located in Park City, Utah on Historic Main Street, this casually elegant setting, originally a Union Pacific Depot, preserves and pays homage to Park City's pioneering roots. Zoom has a hearty yet sophisticated menu of American Cuisine with a Utah flair.

"VERY slow service. With reservations, we were seated downstairs and had to wait a long time for a waiter. We were rarely asked if we needed anything. The beer and food were very good, however."

Jeanne & Gaston is a French Bistro with a modern twist that is based on a mix of Godard"s family recipes and traditional French recipes.<br /> <br />Diners can enjoy the wonderful cuisine in the restaurant's dining hall that has a modern ambiance with a touch of classic French influence, or at the garden patio during the summer months, all the while retaining its casual and classy atmosphere.

Palazzo is an upscale Italian restaurant, using Mediterranean and carefully sourced ingredients such as octopus, whole Branzino, Ahi-tuna, Atlantic Salmon Angus beef, milk fed veal, homemade pastas and ravioli. Our delicious desserts stray from traditional Italian, but for good reason as the crème brûlée, bread pudding and tiramisu are outstanding. We also have live jazz on Fridays & Saturdays. Private parties can be accommodated on or off site.
