Mediterranean | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

Everything was lovely. The restaurant week menu was among the best I have seen. My three guests and I were all delighted with our choices, which ranged from a perfectly-textured leek and potato soup with chive oil, to moist lamb burgers and a delectable slow-cooked salmon with a cauliflower purée. The fun of eating out is to try things one cannot do at home; here the level of finesse and invention is such one is never disappointed. I particularly appreciated the fact that there were two reasonably priced wine choices, by the glass and the bottle, to accompany the menu. Service was excellent and unhurried, which suited four retirees who needed time to chat. Altogether, a very warm experience on an exceedingly cold day. More

Small and quant. First time there. Evidently from 5:30 - 7:30, the menu is a three course price fixed and pre-theater oriented. Many options, including specials, offered within each course. Very pleased and would return. More

Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service | Lincoln Square, Manhattan

Enjoyed our date night at Empire Rooftop. We were seated right away and ordered a couple of drinks and 2 entrees: Korean wings and the sirloin sliders. The wings were fine but the sliders were fantastic. I asked for a 2nd order of sliders and fries. The fries are absolutely addictive. This place is great for finger food, drinks and the views. It is a bit pricey but you are paying for the ambiance and the views. This was a cold, rainy night but our view was still fantastic. Can't wait to go back on a summer night! More
