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.

"always dependable food and drink although think that the wine list is a bit pricey; should be more variety in the wine pricing. and the service is always a bit lackluster and usually starts off strong and then wanes which should be improved."

Awadh, once a princely state, is among the most ancient of Hindu regions. The enchanting history of this land of the Nawabs, kings known for their refined and extravagant lifestyles, is recognized through the richness of its cuisine. Here at Awadh, we bring you these bold flavors that balance elements of spice, intensity and acidity. <br /><br />Awadh is Gaurav Anand’s latest endeavor, following Bhatti Indian Grill (Murray Hill) and Moti Mahal Delux (Upper East Side). With Awadh, we present a culmination of culinary finesse of the finest food from India’s sacred and historic land. We hope to create experiences and memories through flavors as you explore meats, vegetables, seafood, kebabs, curries and breads that will leave a lasting impression on your palate.

"we had been wanting to try this newish restaurant for better (hopefully) Indian food on the upper west side and we find the fare to be well above the average. we didn't appreciate, however, all of the suggestions from our waiter for ordering extra dishes that would have been way too much. we also found the service to be very lackluster and seemingly going through the motions. there was no air of grace or friendliness including from the maitre d'. this could well preclude our return."

"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.

Here at Seven's Turkish Grill we use the freshest ingredients. We do not use processed or frozen food. Everything here is made fresh from our kebabs to our Pides. We offer delicious homemade specialties at affordable prices.

"the meal was pretty good although we were disappointed that they did not read on our reservation form where we wanted to sit. and one of the entrees in our group of 4 arrived considerably later than the rest. our waitress, Gilperi apologized and tried to make it all right and that's probably why we got a complimentary dessert at the end. she was very charming and chatty in an unobtrusive way and is an asset to the restaurant."

Located in the heart of Chelsea, steps away from the Meatpacking district, Pounds & Ounces is the nightly go-to place for couples, singles, girls-night out, as well as weekend brunch. The striking décor highlighted by its centerpiece, a long alabaster and metal glowing communal table, together with mouthwatering food and drink offerings, creating the ideal dining destination.<br /><br />Thanks to their refreshed menu of eclectic dishes designed for sharing, by newly appointed Executive Chef Margaret LaVetty, along with their captivating cocktails and hip music, they are the liveliest scene in the neighborhood. With the spirit of social dining as a driving force behind Pounds & Ounces, there is no better place to enjoy yourself. <br /><br />They currently serve dinner & brunch and can accommodate groups large and small & are available for private events.

"we like this place even though the menu is quite limited but the burgers are very satisfying. it's mostly a younger crowd from what we can see on several occasions which probably accounts for the buzz which we do not like. however going early and sitting in the back corner helps a bit so we will return when we have a good offer to use."

The West Bank Cafe has been serving exceptional American Fare and an award winning wine list to our neighbors and NYC visitors for over 35 years. The sophisticated, yet relaxed ambiance is enhanced by our special connection to New York's theater community, making it the perfect destination for a before or after-show meal. Our comfortable interior includes the Laurie Beechman Theatre, a 100-seat performance and private party space underneath the restaurant. We hope to see you soon!.

"a very good choice in this part of the theatre district; they get you out in time with the proper
amount of pacing so you don't feel rushed. the menu offers many good choices at fair prices and goodly sized portions and the service is always friendly. a winning formula all the way around.

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 Scallops, Peekytoe Crabcake, or Steak Carpaccio 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 Sunday Lasagna. An array of inventive sides complete the meal, like Gruyere Soufflé, Fried Herb Tater Tots, Hash Browns. The desserts inspire nostalgia with an individual red velvet cake served, Sunday Jubilee, 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."
