We called in for a drink after a day of sightseeing and loved the ambience so we stayed for dinner. Very reasonably priced food and fantastic quality. Service was very good without being intrusive. If I was a local I'd be here all the time.

We met Irish friends at St. James Gate for a few well-made cocktails and perfect pints of Guinness. We delighted in our delicious apps - garlic mushrooms, boneless wings, and bruscheta. The chicken curry and shepherd's pie were equally outstanding. Prices are fair - especially...More

downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
