So good we went the next night for dinner as well!

My man and I were in NYC for the hurricane, staying in Chelsea (or SoPo - South of Power as some renamed the area). No power but we did have hot water. We walked and walked and came upon this oasis on Halloween night. We looked inside and saw a dimly lit, packed restaurant with gorgeous waiters dressed for the occasion (read: scantily clad with body glitter) and thought, "This is it!" Went right in. Never even looked at a menu. With no reservation we had to wait a bit for a table so we sidled up to bar and enjoyed a cocktail until one was available. In spite of the fact that table was four inches from the one beside us AND we were literally in the foyer, we were delighted! Having survived the hurricane we were up for anything. Our server was Zack. He was delightful, charming, well-informed and helped us negotiate the menu. We started with the spice crusted ahi tuna and the Maine lobster taco. Both were great but the taco was so good we almost ordered another before our meals arrived. For our mains, my man had the filet mignon and I had the halibut. Both perfectly cooked and very generous portions. No room for dessert. A perfect meal. The next night - our last night in the city - we went back again for dinner. Two nice guys at the bar paid for our bar tab and we had another amazing meal. We can't wait to go back!!

Our new favorite in NYC

We had to unexpectedly leave the restaurant before our meal arrived, and asked for everything to be packaged to go. The staff and owner accommodated us extremely well, even offering a glass of wine, on the house, while I waited for everything. Ten minutes later, at home, we were enjoying the most tender and succulent filet mignon with potatoes au gratin & a perfectly prepared mouth watering duck dinner. I was extremely happy with the meal and the service, and look forward to my next visit very, very soon!

We went as a party of four and everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was attentive and personable. The place is bright and clean. It is fortunate that they are on Tenth, just a bit out of the way for the restaurant row crowd, because if they were closer in, we'd probably never get a table. Going back again tonight.

This is a favorite in Hell's Kitchen - good food with reasonable prices, drinks are well mixed, and the waiters are friendly and sooo cute. The lobster taco and the beet salad are some of my favorite appetizers in the city

Just a bunch of superlatives. If you are looking for NYC's best on 10th Avenue and the 40's, the hunt should stop here. The food, service, decor and amenities are like the fab 4. Even the bathroom is amazing. Chloetrees is way off base.

The food, decor, service, crowd; everything about this restaurant is amazing. All though the restaurant is on the small side it gave it a cozy romatic feeling with the dimmed lights and unique chandeliers. I would definitely go back. I recommend the signature vermont mac n cheese. Sounds childish but its delicious. Prepare yourself the portion is very large, its good to split between two or more people.

My friends and I (4 women) try a new restaurant almost every month. Dined here last summer ('06). Had a wonderful meal and lots of fun. Almost considered missing our show! Crab Fritter is heavenly and huge (enough for 2). Sea Bass is cooked to perfection. Chocolate soufle is incredible. Then there are the waiters!!! Four women on girls nite out with the cutest, friendliest waiters and bartenders (especially Tyler, if he's still there). What more could a girl ask for?
