    Nothing makes us feel like we’ve made it like splurging on a power lunch of lobster linguine alongside Midtown’s movers and shakers, in a dining room adorned with Andy Warhol portraits. NBD. Read more

    The veal bolognese, tomato and mozzarella and chocolate dessert were really good. Great restaurant week menu.

    Bronzino was excellent. Lentil soup outstanding. Dover sole was great. Service was fair at best, and very expensive. You can find food just as good at better prices with better service.

    Though indoor bar area small, great cocktails (reasonably priced!) + ambiance + staff (try the cremisi) excellent... fave place for after work

    The salmon with the salmon egg and black lentils was the best dish. Excellent.

    Beef carpaccio was very good with nice mustard and parmigiana reggiano. Good choice.

    Certainly not an original tip but the original Warhol's are really cool. Pricey and fancy place but that's ok because the food delivers! Dover sole was perfectly prepared.

    Great place, very different and nice decoration, and delicious food!! Ask for the Risotto!

    We had an over the top deliciously tasting 3 course menu for not even 40 Bucks. Very friendly and attentive staff.

    This place was nothing short of amazing. Every dish was exquisite. It's on the pricier side, but you're getting what you're paying for.

    Quiet bar in a lovely restaurant - great outdoor space in the shade during the summer. Drinks aren't cheap.

    Always intrigued by the outdoor space for a post work watering hole- the mark up is outrageous and not worth it. Stick to St Barth's if you require vitamin D

    Try the Bronzino, wonderfully made. Warhol makes it taste even better.

    “The space is either the principal attraction (if its airporty weirdness appeals) or the primary problem (if the weirdness does not, and if the premium therefore grates).” Read more

    Under it's former guise, this was a stunning NYC venue. The gauche introduction of carpet, chandeliers, random Warhol and "Spotted Pig"-style pot plants suggest a stylistically troubled reincarnation.

    Great spot for cocktails and even better place for dinner! Ask for the Double Cross pear martini with the baby pears!

    Salmon carpaccio was okay but the salmon roe added little. Not the best choice.

    This Italian restaurant located in art collector Aby Rosen's Lever Building is lined with Warhol portraits of stars like Aretha Franklin and Sylvester Stallone.
