I love to eat/drink in this recently-opened well-kept-secret dining oasis incongruously tucked away in the heart of a gritty typical Garment Center block (!!), right near Macy's, The Javits Center, a block north of Madison Square Garden and also next door to the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel. There's a cute little brass-railed sidewalk cafe upfront and a relaxed entry bar which leads into (and here's the ultimate surprise and totally unheard of in this area) - a white tablecloth votive-lit dining room (!) leading through glass doors to this gorgeous walled-for-privacy dining garden, with tons of lush flowers and palms, lit-up fountain, wall sconces, bright canvas umbrellas and awnings, more. The traditional regional Italian food with a New American twist is delish - I adore the hand-made tortellini in a four-cheese sauce and their special (very rich) made-on-premise tiramisu and the after-dinner hand-brewed private label grappa will give you a mellow mega-buzz, for sure, along with the great list of exotic custom-blend $6 (!) Martinis at the bar's daily happy hour. The warm and professional service makes me feel so relaxed (not a smidgin of NYC attitude here...) and owners Victor (who is also the executive chef and a former Carmine's GM) and Martin will make you feel so at home. Oh, forgot to mention the amazing weekend brunch...Eggs Park Avenue, anyone?? and also that Luxe is open 7 days a week until midnight, as well.
