Maloney & Porcelli is a clubby new American restaurant that draws inspiration from a simpler time when three martini lunches were alive and well, steak was for dinner, and servers anticipated guests’ every need, even completing dishes tableside. Begin meals at Maloney & Porcelli with a selection of shellfish, salads or favorites such as Baked Clams Orsini, Peekytoe Crabcake, or Steak Tartare that is finished tableside. For the main course, there is a choice of steaks and shanks, including the famed Crackling Pork Shank with Firecracker Applesauce, lobsters and composed options such as Chicken Under a Brick, Pan-Seared Atlantic Salmon, or Beef Shortrib Stroganoff. An array of inventive sides complete the meal, like Gruyere Soufflé, Fried Herb Tater Tots, Broccoli and Pimento Cheese. The desserts inspire nostalgia with a individual red velvet cake served, grasshopper pie for two, and a selection of house-made sorbets, sherbets and ice creams.

"Have been coming for many many years and the quality has been consistent as well as the service. This time it would have been ideal except for the foursome next to us who were so loud that it interfered with our conversation. Why don't people consider their surroundings? We also noticed that others around us were bothered by this and yet the staff who were also aware would do nothing to quell the sound coming from these rude people."

"Hi there, it's chef Alex Garcia. In my kitchen there are no borders just fun delicious food made from the best ingredients I can get my oven mits on! As a native Cuban I grew-up appreciating the simple joys of food and conviviality centered around the family table, so here at AG Kitchen you'll find the food I enjoy cooking and eating with my friends and family. It's my take on American and Latin classic comfort food. There's my signature ceviches, and other starters and salads, a collection of burgers done my way, a delicious take on Roasted Chicken served Brazilian style, plus a paella style dish for 1 or more and mix and match surf and turf. It's always a dinner party at A.G. Kitchen.

Buca di Beppo serves authentic Italian cuisine in an eclectic, vintage setting. Our dishes are served family-style, meant to be shared by everyone at the table. Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more. At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio. Our energetic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff make Buca di Beppo the perfect place for great Italian food and fun.

"they really need to market this place more. we had a fabulous meal with the most courteous service where they tried to please us on every account including turning the music down. and the food and drink were great with gigantic portions served family style. we were only two people so we even took food home which we also enjoyed. a real winner and we will be back and next time with more people."

"Had not been here in many years but will be back soon again. Pleasant old-time space with friendly service, a vast menu with many choices and fair prices and complimentary wonderful assorted breads and tiny cookies at the end. What a perfect combination! And delicious to boot."

More festive than a piñata stuffed with a mariachi band and twice as stylish, Calle Ocho’s lively crowd is amped up on Mojitos, Caipirinhas, Sangria and Spanish wine or beer and shows no sign of slowing down. Those not willing or able to holler over the salsa music retire to the two small lounge areas to commiserate. The bar area is a prelude to their Nuevo Latino cuisine in the dining room that will knock your taste buds for a loop. If you’re in need of a quick jump-start, Calle Ocho will get your motor running.

"Hadn't been here in awhile and we will be coming back sooner rather than later. Such a welcoming, caring group of people who constantly check to see that everything is okay. And superb service from our server, Lily, who is a real asset. And then there is the food and drink, all of which were
very good. There are many excellent choices from which to choose so do so and enjoy!

"Still enjoying the food after an absence of some time. The menu is good although the portions seem somewhat smaller now while the prices aren't.
Our waitress couldn't have been more helpful and courteous which enhanced our experience.
