Hal Rubenstein

Summer Escape

If it’s a taste of the Riviera you crave, Nice Matin serves up a sunny South of France feeling—on the Upper West Side.

Well Biltmore

Never mind its neighborhood without a name. Chef Gary Robins’s Biltmore Room is a destination in its own right (so’s the cell-phone booth!).

Sea Change

One Hanover Square

Go Ouest

2315 Broadway, at 84th Street (212-580-8700).

Bravo, Bivio

Danny Emerman brings his unfussy Italian fare, and bubbling crowd, back to New York. Miss Barocco? You’ll love Bivio.

November 29, 2004 | Restaurant Review

Lure Fishbar’s snazzy décor and bracing new menu are oceans away from the former Canteen.

June 19, 2000 | Restaurant Review
Top of the Hill

Blue Hill dispensed with all the flash that dominates the current scene, and still got my attention; the equally subdued Tocqueville is a labor of love.

Gray Is Beautiful

Gray Kunz won four stars at Lespinasse, then disappeared. Café Gray is his welcome return.

February 14, 2005 | Restaurant Review
Southeast Asian by Southwest

At Sapa, Patricia Yeo’s fusion cooking is appealing. It’s the room and the menu that need work.

June 20, 2005 | Restaurant Review
Laid-Back Flay

At Bar Americain, Bobby Flay is uncharacteristically subdued.
