Cozy restaurant, homey atmosphere. They offer daily specials. We had the ribeye steak (delicious, prepared exactly as requested, fresh asparagus), pasta (generous portion, great sauce), salmon (nice portion). Had there tiramisu for dessert which was delicious. So glad we stopped in.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,

architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
