The over all experience we had here was quite lovely. The real strength in this restaurant lies in its staff. Everyone was so courteous, accommodating, and efficient. There is no tipping here as it is absorbed in the price of the meal. I would have...More

I ate at the old location perhaps ten years ago and had an excellent meal. Now, for whatever reason, the food was mostly ordinary. There were seven of us, and among us had eight appies and five mains. The gnocchi were the standout stars -...More

Union Square has been one of our favorite NYC restaurants for decades. At the former USC location (actually in Union Square), we felt like family, enjoying lunch, dinner or brunch at our small, casual and lovely restaurant where the service and food were always stellar....More

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
