The namesake round table at the Algonquin's Round Table Room is flanked by an oil painting of its most famous occupant, Dorothy Parker. That's one of the few references to the restaurant's famous history the room, completely refurbished in 2009, is now populated by local suits and tourists at the dark wood tables and overstuffed chintz-upholstered chairs. The menu is classic American with hints of French, banquet fare without the massive proportions. Appetizers range from somewhat French (baked French onion soup), to somewhat Italian (calamari and rigatoni). When the main course rolls around, Executive Chef Alex Aubry cooks meat well, but gets heavy handed with the garlic (like in the otherwise perfectly creamy risotto). Take a pass on that one, and save your tastebuds for the signature New York-style cheesecake.
