My party and I absolutely loved it! I would recommend this for a first date or for a nightcap. The lobster caviar rolls were divine, the champagne was delicious and the bathroom is beautiful. A 10/10 experience.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Gab's! Come and dine with us for a creative experience you won't forget. From the artwork on the walls to the artwork Chef Nate Ashton is putting on the plate; Gab's will not disappoint. Recently receiving a Michelin Guide recommendation, Gab's is centered on locally sourced and seasonal cuisine. Chef Nate makes his housemade sourdough bread an hour before service every day. We use the highest quality, local, organic ingredients. A few highlights include the Berkshire Pork Chop, the Spaetzle with lump crab, and of course the Gab's Burger with a housemade sweet potato bun and signature sauces. We are right in the heart of the West Village on the famous Carmine Street. Gab's offers a gorgeous outdoor sidewalk patio as well as bar seats and a spacious dining room inside. We take walk ins and large groups. From the service to the food we go above and beyond to make sure dining is a luxury experience.

The decor features candlelit tables, brick fireplaces, a baby grand piano and a private garden. The restaurant operates inside a historic, land-marked carriage house built in 1767.

"1 If by Land..." has been my favorite NYC restaurant since the first time I dined there in 1998. It cannot be topped for food, service, ambiance, and location. If you are willing to eat on the earlier side of the evening (arriving before 7), there is nearly zero noise level inside the restaurant. It generally gets louder as the evening progresses but is never, in my experience, a din of noise. You can easily have a quality and/or intimate conversation at your table. I will frequent this restaurant as long as I live on every NYC trip I make. I've been there for special occasions (birthday, anniversary, career promotion), business meetings, romance, and simply dinner with friends. It is a great environment for all of these. Well done, "1 If by Land...," well done!

Incredibly good sushi - lovely dining room. Already craving for more. It doesn’t say anywhere on their website that they don’t have a liquor license. It’s a pity but luckily there’s a sake wine shop right around the corner.

Skinos restaurant was an amazing Greek dining experience. The atmosphere was great - quiet and cozy, perfect for a relaxing meal. The food was absolutely delicious, with authentic Greek flavors that left me wanting more. The prices were perfectly reasonable, making it a great value for the quality of the food and service. I would highly recommend Skinos to anyone looking for a fantastic Greek restaurant experience.

About the restaurant
D Antan - Vino Naturale e Cucina Italiana - is an authentic Italian Restaurant. Our menu is inspired by traditional recipes from Piedmont, like tajarin, the most popular homemade pasta of the Region or beef Brasato in Barolo wine.

We serve Italian natural wines ALL BY THE GLASS. A consistent selection of “skin contact” wines (also called orange wines) makes our wine list even more special.

Had a really nice time. The staff super friendly and the vibes were great – the space is beautiful. The food was only just okay for the high prices though. Hopefully they figure that part out because everything else was great.

About the restaurant
Following up on the critically acclaimed and Michelin-starred restaurant Laut, chef Salil Mehta introduces Laut Singapura in Gramercy.

Focusing on Singaporean food, Singapura showcases the vibrant flavors and preparations of several Asian countries, including Malaysia, China, Indonesia, and Thailand. The menu reflects dishes what one would find among Singaporean street hawkers in an elevated space using regionally authentic spices and the freshest ingredients.

Their kitchen was very backed up when we ate here. Drinks came fast but food took forever for a lot of tables. Our curry puff appetizer took 20mins to come, not sure if they simply forgot since it came within a few min after we reminded them No comp just an apology when they realized how long the food was taking for all the tables. Food itself was decent. I liked the laksa and char kway teow. But it was extremely pricey. This is not anywhere close to Thai Villa or Pranakhon level of food quality and service, which I can justify the price. So, I think the value isn’t really worth it and I would not return.
