Onegin is where you'll go when your usual palace just isn't opulent, caviar-y or crazy enough. You'll find smoked sturgeon by crystal-chandelier light. House-infused honey-pepper vodka from a bar made of 200-year-old Ukrainian birch. And borscht. Delivered to your red velvet throne by butler-jacket-wearing waiters. <br> <br> Whether you head to the aforementioned bar, or past 19th-century carriage seats and into the brocade dining room, all roads lead to vodka. Available in a carafe, a cocktail or the spiked fisherman's soup (next-level comfort food). <br> <br> The rest of the menu comes courtesy of the city's only operational Russian pechka, a wood-burning furnace that would have once been used to heat a czar's castle. Now, it'll heat your quail on a stick. <br> <br> And while you wait between courses of pike caviar and pork belly pâté, you'll read Pushkin, his sketches and passages from secret journals have been etched around the restaurant in goose feather quill.

"Music could be a bit softer, but was still reasonably quiet. Would like to have more authentic heavy Russian bread. But overall enjoyable experience."

"Very good food, interesting and unusual dishes. Decor ambiance OK, but importantly not too noisy. Entertainment was unexpected surprise, but why Spanish not Russian slant? Only two of the listed deserts were available (disappointment) and no American coffee -- only option for it was "Americano" (diluted espresso)."

Dos Caminos brings the vibrant spirit of Mexico City to New York City. Serving authentic and upscale Mexican cuisine, including fresh guac, killer margaritas, and South of the Border staples like Asada Tacos and Mexico City-Style quesadillas. The tequila and margarita menu is one of the most robust of its kind. “Dos” has single-handedly redefined Mexican for Americans. <br /><br />Regular celebrity and power player pop-ins fuel a raucously clubby vibe, the sexy interior spaces impress guests for all occasions – private parties, client dinners, date nights and more.

"Have been here before. Food was good, but has been better. Noise level far too high -- more than I remembered. I ordered salmon and it came virtually raw. I am familiar with the trend to not over cook salmon, but this was literally raw (just seared. My friiends both had salmon "rare", but not almst raw like mine. At least it was replaced without argument.."

Chef Bill Telepan acclaimed former chef of the 3-star Judson Grill will serve the very best and freshest of seasonal foods impeccably prepared and paired with an interesting, hand- picked and reasonably priced selection of wines. Ruth Reichl described his cooking as “…extremely eloquent; each of [his] unassuming dishes roars with flavor, and the minute you finish one bite you instantly want another. His direct style draws diners into a vibrant interplay of textures, tastes and colors.” Telepan, an exciting new destination located in the heart of the Upper West Side, will welcome fine dining enthusiasts from around the city, as well as the pre- and post-theater Lincoln Center crowd.

For over eighty-five years, New York's defining cultural moments have taken place at Russian Tea Room. Ever since members of the Russian Imperial Ballet founded the restaurant in 1927, it has been a second home for boldface names and the intellectual elite-an exclusive enclave where actors, writers, politicians, and businessmen planned their next deals and feted their friends' latest Carnegie Hall performances.

"Although very good service, food was disappointing. Very good appetizers, drinks and desert, but main course poor. Two steaks ordered medium and medium rare were medium well and tasted as if had been steamed or potted rather than pan-seared as per the menu. Rather tasteless too. Surprisingly low dress code for this old classic was also a disappointment."

"Food good, but not outstanding. Not a place I would choose for a "classy" full relaxing dinner in this price range due to atmosphere -- lacks the warmth, coziness and ambiance that I seek. Also too noisy, although not too bad when upstairs away from the bar."
