I really like Laut. It's dishes are very interesting and well prepared. This was a second visit but with one exception. Our party size shrunk from Six to Two. Two people can't order enough dishes. This cuts down on variety. So when you go to...More

Noisy and crowded, seems like they are resting on there laurels. Food was tasty, but nothing extraordinary. Dorian fruit dessert was a bit over-spiced, can't recommend it.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
