Really pleasant restaurant. Food is above par. Service and staff friendliness is excellent. Pricing is fair with large portions. Easy place for a meal, seems to have room without reservations at times and great location.

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
