San Martin, established in 1976, asserts itself as “a gathering place for celebrities in the world of television, radio, and the movies.” With photographs of toothy, grinning stars like L.L. Cool J and Frank Sinatra adorning the walls, you’d be inclined to think they came, at least in part, for the food. Yet many dishes disappoint, and entrees like Vitello Parmesan are passable at best. The paper-thin cutlet is covered in mozzarella (not Parmesan); soggy, freezer-weary sides don’t add much luster. The eatery’s hodge-podge dining room, with multicolored leather banquettes, white tablecloth-covered round tables, and a ceiling illuminated with neon pink lighting, also leaves something to be desired. So how to explain the restaurant’s longevity? It’s New York, baby—location, location, location. San Martin’s a mere stone’s throw from the Waldorf Astoria and other upscale area hotels.
