Our taxi-driver recommended this restaurant and we went there for dinner: We had a great evening, very good food (the Black Angus Steak was perfect and we liked the warm chocolate cake with ice cream), friendly service, beautiful location.

If you have never tried duck wings...I suggest stopping into the Vanderbilt and ordering a plate of duck wings. They are so tender and sweet you will want a second order!

This is a neighborhood cafe, which has its fans, but there are definitely better places. It's pretty noisy inside, the menu is somewhat limited, and the quality of the food is good, but nothing special.
