"Lots of wait staff, bus staff and managers--all moving rapidly but looking like deer caught in headlights. Perhaps they have been overwhelmed by the crowd? We waited 20 minutes for our wine and 40 (!) minutes for an appetizer, aranci, served at room temperature instead of hot or even warm. Still they were tasty as was the pizza, but the crusts while thin were completely soggy. We'll give them time to get on their feet and try again, but not soon."

"Like other Danny Meyer restaurants, The Modern-Bar Room is wonderful, especially for eating lightly between a Members' Preview and a classic film. A martini and wine began our meal, followed by two appetizers for one of us (tuna sliders: not to be missed and fried oysters: okay) and soup and scallops for the other of us. From hosts to wait staff to bus staff, professional service though the server seemed less welcoming when we didn't order more. Regardless, a special restaurant in one of NYC's most architecturally interesting buildings."

Rita Sodi grew up on a little farm North of Florence, Italy, and almost everything her family ate was made from the farm, prosciutto, salame, wine, vegetables…and this food was very important for the family. They were not allowed to miss any meal. Rita's mother, Elena, always told her to drink wine because it “makes good blood” and do not eat Prosciutto without bread. When she finished art school she began to travel for my work in the clothing business and at that point she really started to appreciate the simplicity of her mother's food and the way she cooked. For ten years she traveled from Florence, Italy to New York, Los Angeles, Asia and Australia. Year after year, wherever in the world Rita found a kitchen, she began to cooked my Mother's food. Friends filled her kitchen and sat at her table, her passion was born.

"Minimalist ambiance and service: the former fine, the latter, not so. Expect no welcoming greeting or parting farewell. Negronis and wine are fine. The verza salad is wonderful as is the taliatelli with onions; avoid the artichoke lasagna: flavors are muddy, consistency mushy. The affogato is good but overpriced. Appetizer plates whisked away and mains served a second later. The wait staff prowls the room constantly looking for you to finish. We never linger--ever--but we felt pushed out. A little bit of graciousness would go a long way."

Provencal cuisine in an intimate, cozy setting. A zinc bar, banquettes, flowers, and an attentive staff ensure your comfort and satisfaction. Seasonal ingredients and simplicity of preparation distinguish our food.

"We were six in a restaurant with only twenty-eight seats. Cozily seated, we ordered a variety of dishes, all of which were very good. The service was seamless; no one was asked what they ordered: each dish was served to the appropriate person. Add to the ambiance, the food and the service the graciousness of the owner and you have the formula for a lovely dining experience."

"We began with Proseco, perfectly chilled, followed by a side of greens and pumpkin veloute. For mains we had lobster thermidor and salmon, both delicious and just the right size (but not for big eaters). A special dessert was tarte tatin and it did not disappoint. The host, one of the owners, is gracious. We have eaten here before and we will certainly eat here again."

"Cocktails and wine followed by Bearded Broccoli (great name, great taste) and Hot Dipped Chicken (really, really hot and wonderful), Thoughtful touches like used flatware from the appetizer replaced automatically by clean for the main course. Even in upscale restaurants we have had to ask for a change. Bravo to Joe and the Misses for the pleasure of dining with them."

The Clam is a new 50 seat neighborhood restaurant drawing its inspiration from one of our favorite ingredients, the clam. Mike Price, chef and co-owner, offers a menu that celebrates seasonal, market driven ingredients as well as showcases influences of the Atlantic seaboard. The menu boasts a variety of clam dishes, some classic, some with a new twist and fun originals. The menu is rounded out with iced shellfish, salads, appetizers as well as meat and local seafood entrées. Desserts follow suit, and are inspired by the seasonal and local market offerings. All made in-house, the approach is simple and straightforward with something for everyone. Our shared vision and common goal is to offer genuine hospitality to our guests, garner relationships and establish ourselves not only as a neighborhood gem but also a Greenwich Village destination where our guests can be confident that their experiences are sure to be exceptional.

"We began with the much acclaimed clam dip and it is indeed wonderful and the chips that accompany it are terrific. Our mains were the spaghetti with clams and the clam sliders (some of the clams were too too chewy), both good enough to order again. Two glasses of wine rounded out the meal. If only we had had room for dessert: next time."

"Wine and Manhattans began our evening and we were able to relax and enjoy without being pushed to order even though the restaurant was crowded as always. We shared the octopus appetizer, good but not exceptional and then our usuals: the tuna burger (better than previous ones) and the mussels (always reliable). Although we didn't order any of the specials, the fact that they are printed and inserted into the standard menu and with prices is an added touch that is appreciated."

"I was concerned that the vegan with us would have a problem with the menu. Instead, thanks to a wonderful server named Grace, we were treated royally and the food for all of us could not have been better. A definite must try."

"We were looking for a restaurant that met all our dietary needs, especially the vegan among us, and Asian Spice worked. The crispy rolls and the spring rolls were the best food we ate; the calamari was a little too greasy and the mains were okay. Do know that the portions are generous; you will not leave hungry. And do try their special sangria; it's quite nice."
