From the same team that brought you Woo Lae Oak in Soho & Los Angeles, Bann is a unique, interactive dining experience featuring authentic Korean cuisine with a modern flair. <br /><br />Unleash your inner chef at Bann and add an element of sizzle to your next evening out! Choose from a variety of authentic Korean barbecues prepared in our signature marinade, including beef short rib and thinly sliced rib eye, all cooked to perfection at your own smokeless tabletop grill. Or dine on traditional favorites like the black cod simmered in a spicy garlic soy reduction. For the adventurous diner, Bann creates a sharing & tasting experience to take you and your companions on a culinary tour of Korea.

"A good spot to try Korean food although there should be more of a balance between dishes with spicy and non-spicy sauces or at least you should be able to get modified heat. A lovely atmosphere with refined service and generous portions at pretty fair prices. Try it!"

Mario Batali, Joseph Bastianich, Andy Nusser and Nancy Selzer, the team that brought you Tarry Lodge in Port Chester, NY is excited to announce the opening Tarry Lodge Enoteca Pizzeria, TL's casual little sister, in Saugatuck. <br />Tarry Lodge Enoteca Pizzeria features Andy Nusser's signature hand-made pastas, exquisite fritti, and succulent meats cooked to order on our wood fired grill. The menu will have a distinct focus on local ingredients and we are taking full advantage of Westport's bustling farmer's market.<br />The centerpiece of the room is a Mugnaini pizza oven hand crafted by the famed Refratarri Valoriani, a family of artisans making pizza ovens since 1890. This fantastic oven will be surrounded by a dining counter, where guests can watch pizzaiolo Mario La Posta craft his world class pies.

"Whenever we are visiting in Westport, we make sure to come here for the friendliness, good food and drink (although I think the wine list is quite
pricey and not all that exciting), decent portions and food pricing that is pretty fair.

The West Bank Cafe has been serving exceptional American Fare to NYC theatre patrons as well as performers for over 30 years. Complementing the food is an award-winning California-focused wine list and a comfortable interior that includes the downstairs Laurie Beechman Theater, an 80-seat performance and private party space.

Maialino is a Roman-inspired trattoria from Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, located in Gramercy Park. Maialino captures the warmth and comfort of a true neighborhood trattoria, with a menu that celebrates the restaurant's ongoing relationship with its local family of farmers and suppliers. Executive Chef Nick Anderer draws inspiration from the Roman cooking tradition to create soulful food, reflective of the rich culture of both Rome and New York.

"We have been coming here for some time for special occasions and the most recent one was no exception. How welcome the staff makes you feel.
From the "Happy Birthday" card already on our reserved table to all of the extras in celebration of my husband's 75th birthday, everything was just
right. The menu and drink list are a treat and there are many excellent choices. You can never go wrong here with such fine fare and a staff that is so hospitable, a Danny Meyer trademark, and professional.

Everyone, from beautiful models and young professionals to families and business types on power lunches, flocks to Serafina Fabulous Grill to enjoy the ambiance and delicious cuisine found in this upbeat three room restaurant. Choose from a variety of homemade pastas and fresh grilled meats, fish and vegetables. Always buzzing with good music, animated conversation and hearty laughter, diners can enjoy authentic Italian cuisine on the terrace, in the main dining room with the open fire grill and cherrywood burning oven or at the lively bar.

"Went for dinner at the East 61st Street location. Menu is somewhat limited and the space is small making for tight tables so you hope for a quiet
party next to you. Staff is pleasant and food is good but not a knockout. Go when it is convenient for you.

A faithful neighborhood favorite, Isabella’s has been an Upper West Side institution for over two decades, a hit with locals and celebrities alike. Isabella’s defines Upper West Side dining with reliable market-fresh offerings for the Mediterranean palate. From birthdays to celebratory brunches, many a memories have been made at Isabella’s and continue unfolding at this “oasis for an unrushed, delicious meal,” according to Zagat. When the weather’s pleasant, grab a sidewalk seat in the café for a classic New York Brunch filled with people-watching, benedicts and Bloody Marys. Indulge your sweet tooth in a Chocolate Bag, a dessert staple that’s been on the menu since opening day!

"While we had another excellent meal here as we have had since the restaurant first opened, we were very uncomfortable due to so many doors being open (there used to be just one) and so the air conditioning couldn't work properly and it was a very warm night. Even many of the staff looked
uncomfortable. What a waste of energy and what a shame to spoil a good meal. Looks like we can't come back in the summertime unless things change. So be forewarned if this could be a concern of yours!

"It is always worthwhile coming here for the good food and excellent margaritas. Service, however, is usually hit or miss. More servers are really needed to make it better. Portions and prices are pretty fair so all in all a good choice."

 Pasha - NYC
Pasha - NYC
With its deep red walls and skylight dining room, Pasha is one of the best Turkish restaurants in North America. Anyone who wants to take a "magical carpet ride" to Istanbul in a very elegant and comfortable ambience and warm and friendly service should visit Pasha.

"Had not been here in years and decided to go again. The space is lovely with the likely opportunity to have a quiet conversation which is a rarity these days. The menu is varied affording good choices of Turkish fare and drink. The service as in the past starts off well enough but quickly deteriorates so that you have to look for assistance which negates much of the positive here. Still it has been here for a long time and does deserve a try."

Dafni Taverna, conveniently located in the heart of Times Square and the theatre district, provides a dining experience reminiscent of a small village in Greece. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, from the beamed ceiling to the wood plank floor, from the exposed brick wall to the soft Greek music playing in the background. Guests enjoy the hospitality and fine home cooking that the country is famous for. The restaurant serves authentic Greek cuisine, prepared simply and deliciously, using only the freshest and purest ingredients. The menu starts with a large selection of hot and cold meze, and an array of classic salads, as well as a few innovations. Entrees include many of the traditional dishes, a selection of charcoal-grilled meats and fish, and a few intriguing additions, such as grilled quail on a bed of spinach, and braised lamb shank with hilopites (a type of pasta). Delicious, homemade baklava, galaktoboureko and rice pudding are prepared fresh daily in our kitchen.
