About the restaurant
Orient Express Cocktail Bar in West Village.
The Orient Express may have inspired iconic novels and films like From Russia with Love, served as the setting for bravado characters like James Bond, and been featured as the backdrop of Agatha Christie's most famous works, but the famed vintage train continues to ride through modern culture with its latest stop in NYC's West Village,
where Turks and Frogs owner Osman Cakir has re-conceptualized its famous voyages into a posh, time-reversing cocktail bar with a flair for the spirits of yesteryear.

Its look reflects the nostalgia of train travel: Amid the sexy amber glow, warm vintage-tinted beech wood panels, faux windows and bronzed luggage racks, the bar—a handcrafted Caesar Stone beauty—is the clear focal point. Above it, the ceiling curves
to each side, and behind, bartenders bedecked in old-school vests and neckties shake and
pour cocktails.

As far as authentic Persian experiences go, Turkish Cuisine in the Hell's Kitchen District really cannot be beat. Once you step foot in this place you will feel that you have been transported direct to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. The donor kebabs are highly sought after, as is the Turkish coffee for lunch. With the abundance of fresh vegetables served with every dish at Turkish Cuisine, you really cannot go wrong.

For a cultural experience, consider taking the family to Turkish Cuisine for your next gathering. The menu contains a bit of everything, so even the most discerning of taste buds are likely to find something that appeals. Consistent", "tasty" Turkish fare at "reasonable" rates make this Theater District veteran a "delightful" choice "pre-curtain". Full review Zagat.

Fabulous for drinks. Food was okay but I felt over buttered and creamed with mixed results, as if the extra was compensating for something. Steak was a great choice if a bit too much sauce; fish was okay; scallops were just so-so.

The Richmond features is the perfect space for an intimate Saturday evening out or a casual group gathering. A beautiful covered garden patio allows you the opportunity to dine alfresco.

“With custom-made, Bauhaus-style, leather chairs and wooden block tabletops, earth tones are the underlying color scheme. But the eye may zero in on a few points in the room -- the teal-hued banquettes, a pulley fan system and massive windows salvaged from a Brooklyn factory. These function as partitions in the dining room.” -Pamela Silvestri

I enjoyed my time here at victory. I was hesitant at first, due to the mixed reviews, but my friends and I had a great time. Our waiter Stephanie was very attentive and helpful. We will definitely go back in the future and even try other locations around the country if we visit those cities. I definitely recommend and suggest everyone makes their own judgment by visiting.

About the restaurant
Located in the heart of Times Square, celebrate the ambiance of winding down while enjoying a French dining experience. Popular shows such as, "Lion King" and "Moulin Rouge!" are steps away from our eatery. Great for date nights and family moments, an intimate setting sets the tone for your weekly night out with love.

The place is nice, we were the first ones there and attended to quickly. The food was good, I have the social breakfast, scrambled eggs, potatoes bacon and wheat toast. All of it wa good but ootwtoes could have been softer. A few people came nothing crazy and was still pretty quiet ok a Saturday at burinch time. Doesn’t seem like a busy area for a big crowd to come but it’s a nice restaurant, modern touches and chill vibes.

I had the most amazing time at Rocco's, a place where you could bring families, when you can bring colleagues, and where you can be on your own and received a stellar service. For Mother's Day it was one of the most beautiful moment, seeing families coming for fine dining. I salute the entire staff of Rocco and I commend them for a great job well done
