This 1930’s style restaurant is definitely a throwback to old New York, with its art deco décor and banquette seating. They are open for brunch, lunch, dinner, and also have a late night menu (12- 2am). If all that wasn’t enough, they even have a separate sushi and sashimi menu. The raw bar offers clams and oysters shucked to order. It seems that no matter what you are craving, they will have on the menu. Brunch items like eggs benedict and create your own omelette are great. For dinner there are burgers, pasta dishes, seafood options, and even Thai coconut curry.

The worst of New York! Placed an order via Seamless, and arrogant unethical owner insisted I ordered something different from what I actually ordered, notwithstanding what my order receipt said. He refused to deliver the correct item and was terribly rude, even though I have been a customer for more than a decade. Absolutely DO NOT patronize this restaurant unless you enjoy getting ripped off!
