Gramercy Park
About the restaurant
Harding's offers Manhattan's Flatiron District a selection of artisanal American cuisine and craft spirits in a chic and rustic setting. With an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, Executive Chef Joel Zaragoza's menu celebrates seasonal American fare. Harding's also offers an extensive American beer and wine menu, as well as an array of classic cocktails handcrafted by the restaurant's expert mixologists. Exposed brick walls, antique mirrors, vintage chandeliers, and an over-sized, century-old American flag evoke an air of nostalgia in this two-level landmark building.

My wife & I haven’t been to Harding’s in a few years. Too bad for us we could have been having great meals all this time. We shared the Tuna Tartare which was delicious, my wife had the salmon & I had the Ahi Tuna salad both so good. Our server was great as was literally everyone. I know we will be coming back soon.

Astoria
About the restaurant
VIA VAI is a Chef-Owner run restaurant, serving contemporary and authentic Italian food that one would find in the best restaurants and trattorie in today's Italy.

The restaurant is rustic cozy and charming, with a slate and marble top bar serving only select Italian wines, and local and imported tap and bottled beer, that pair perfectly with the artisanal food prepared every day on the premises, and the brick oven roman-style (thin crust) pizza cooked in the imported Italian oven.

Chef-owner Antonio Morichini is Roman born and bred. He did his culinary education and training in Italy, working in some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Rome. His food is loyal to tradition, but forward looking.

About the restaurant
From the team who brought us Ruby’s & Elephante, Dudley’s is a neighborhood staple that delivers good vibes and great food in equal measure. The American-meets-Australian all-day cafe serves a lust-worthy brunch, alongside sandwiches, and pasta, all within a lively environment that’s a destination to see-and-be-seen.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Gab's! Come and dine with us for a creative experience you won't forget. From the artwork on the walls to the artwork Chef Nate Ashton is putting on the plate; Gab's will not disappoint. Recently receiving a Michelin Guide recommendation, Gab's is centered on locally sourced and seasonal cuisine. Chef Nate makes his housemade sourdough bread an hour before service every day. We use the highest quality, local, organic ingredients. A few highlights include the Berkshire Pork Chop, the Spaetzle with lump crab, and of course the Gab's Burger with a housemade sweet potato bun and signature sauces. We are right in the heart of the West Village on the famous Carmine Street. Gab's offers a gorgeous outdoor sidewalk patio as well as bar seats and a spacious dining room inside. We take walk ins and large groups. From the service to the food we go above and beyond to make sure dining is a luxury experience.

Indulgence meets perfection at this Michelin-starred gem! From succulent pork chops to delicate monkfish and a burger that's a culinary marvel, every bite is a testament to culinary mastery. But what truly sets this restaurant apart is its warm and welcoming staff, who treat you like old friends from the moment you step in. A dining experience that's as delightful as it is delicious. Plus Kevin the bartender is definitely a master at craft cocktails! The best food and drinks. Just wish I lived closer to go more often!

About the restaurant
At SET L.E.S. we bring "hip" and "flavor" together in our energetic restaurant/bar located in the heart of Lower East Side, New York City. Nearing almost a decade, the restaurant has grown into a neighborhood gem, most known for, the Asian-inspired menu and palatable crafted cocktails. While the restaurant is popular for it's lunch and dinner, weekend brunch has become the most quintessential experience. With customer-favorite's like the "Chicken and buttermilk waffles" and the "Steak and eggs skillet" cooked to perfection. The ambiance also makes for a great place to celebrate your birthday, with a special complimentary item with parties over 6.

Midtown East
About the restaurant
Inspired by the Japanese Bonsai Tree which is a miniature tree cultivated to resemble nature in a modest space and nurtured with artistic interaction, Bonsaii Tapas & Wine Bar is the ultimate representation of its namesake.
Our cuisine is inspired in International tapas, where everybody will feel welcomed and find something of their taste, putting spin on classic dishes and bringing creative new ones. Our "Secret Garden" is the perfect hidden gem in Midtown East for finding calm in the stress and noise from the city , located walking distance to Central Park and Bloomingdale's and in between some of the most popular avenues (Lexington Ave and Park Ave).
