If anything can get you to the tip of Manhattan, the likable, energetically flavored dishes from chef Tommy Lee (no, not that one) will. The room is nothing special—think bland wedding hall—but the food is terrific. You can feast on colorful thin-crust pizzas, pepper-crusted sirloin and an excellent cut of beef tenderloin in a tangy burgundy sauce. The fish selection includes smoked salmon with chipotle rémoulade, miso-glazed sea bass and a grilled seafood platter. Take to a seat by the window for a grand view of the New York Harbor.
