Knickerbocker is known for its great Jazz and its 28 oz. T- Bone Steaks and is a favorite among many celebrities including F. Murray Abraham, Chris Noth and Ben Stiller. Rachel Ray listed us in her "NYC Favorites" and has praised our Shrimp Cocktail, Creamed Spinach, and of course our T- Bone Steaks. The word "Knickerbocker" itself, says "New York". Upon entering, you’ll know you're in the Village. Its wood paneled walls sport rare turn of the century posters and original caricatures by Al Hirschfield. Large leather booths line the walls and brass rails accent the 100 year old marble bar, where Charles Lindbergh signed his Trans Atlantic contract. We have survived the times by using the freshest ingredients from local markets, and offering good solid value and quality. Our wine list offers over 100 selections, most under $50. We serve until late (weekends 2:00 AM) and offer a Bistro Menu with lighter fare. We offer Brunch on the Weekends, and are open on all Holidays.

Petaluma Restaurant is an upscale Italian-inspired trattoria that has served the Upper East Side for over 28 years since opening its doors in 1985. After closing for a complete renovation in Winter 2013, Petaluma has reopened with new Executive Chef CJ Bivona, formerly the Executive Sous Chef at multiple James Beard Award nominated Yard Bird in Miami, and the Operations Team from The Line Group that has brought you Sons of Essex and Rochelle's in the Lower Eastside and The Raven in MePa. Open daily, Petaluma has lunch and dinner service plus brunch on the weekends.

"Setting aside the open kitchen food preparers handle food with their bare hands...the waiters don't have a clue on how to put an order in...having one person's entrée delivered and the others nowhere in que does not make for a pleasant evening....this is fundamental restaruanting...maybe they lost their touch during the renovation."

Every night Guido and Gino Tiozzo welcome you to Donatello, a fine dining restaurant serving authentic Italian cuisine since 1984. <br><br> Their constant presence and attention to details guarantee that, whether you are dining alone or hosting a large party, you'll be pleased and satisfied by your experience. <br><br> Every lady will leave Donatello with a rose on her hand as thanks for being there. <br><br> You'll see for yourself that hospitality has ancient roots at Donatello. <br><br> The menu is based on century-old Italian recipes and displays Italian specialties; the staff is friendly and professional and the desserts are delicious! <br><br> If the night is still young, come and relax at the piano lounge where blues, jazz and every love songs are played at the baby grand. Listen to the music while sipping a drink or dancing with your loved one.

Novita is a vibrant 60-seat trattoria serving a seasonally inspired, modern Italian menu. Chef owner Marco Fregonese’s innovative take on classical, regional cooking begins with the finest, artisan ingredients and freshest, seasonal products. His distinctive light and flavorful dishes are pure and satisfying and perfectly complemented by a select list of wines from superb Italian specialty and boutique growers. Novita is located a few steps down from a quiet tree lined street in the Gramercy Park neighborhood. The setting is warm and elegant and the mood quintessentially Italian. In pleasant weather, sidewalk, alfresco dining is offered further adding to Novita’s year round appeal.

A modern steakhouse with seafood specialities, headlining an impressive selection of USDA prime black Angus beef steaks, all dry-aged-on-site for 30 - 35 days. <br />Both upstairs and downstairs feature a main dining room and bar area; downstairs stars 4 private party rooms which are all available for customized parties and special events. All dining rooms provide an intimate, romantic ambiance. The combination of harmonious beige ceilings, custom made vintage chandeliers, reclaimed barn wood and snake-skin walls, with classic oak wood floors creates a wonderful art-deco inspired setting.
