Really nice place with great food and service. I got 3 sliders with really crisp fries. The Buffalo chicken slider was hit and quite good. But the short rib slider was out of this world. Great service at the bar too. I will be back!

Burrata Salad with awesome carrot ginger puree. MMMM the burrata cheese was so good. The service was good. Also shared an nori seared raw tuna with wasabi peas and cilantro oil that was yummy. Service was a bit slow but fine.

For a bar and restaurant combined we really loved the food. The chef is magnificent. The price is even practical for it. The waiter is very knowledgeable of what is in the menu.

Stopped here for a bite while walking the city during the holiday season. Smallish establishment, with lots of good sounding items on the menu. Seared tuna was awesome. Husband had a burger said was good, nothing overly special. Staff very friendly. Price = NYC.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
