Wish we could order appetizers and wait to place entrees but everything needs to be ordered at once. Dinner arrived right after appetizers and would have liked more time in between courses.

Mediterranean | Union Square, Manhattan

This was our first time at this restaurant, which by 5 PM was really hopping with young adults. It specializes in world wine selections. And has many options in various price ranges by glass or bottle. The food is a mix of Mediterranean and Turkish flavors. While food menu is somewhat limited it has a couple of dishes that would satisfy most interests. You can get pizza or an entree or everything in between. My friend ordered a very tasty beet salad as well as a veal meatball entree with potatoes, which included another salad. I ordered a trio of bruschetta that would have bee a meal for lunch. The fig, walnut, honey, and cheese one was particularly wonderful. The ravioli was very light and flavorful. Turkish flavors were particularly noticeable in the meat and the mushroom bruschetta. The waiter seemed a little overwhelmed by the crowd. More

Four of us had a wonderful experienice at LeMidi. We came for lunch before the theater. We were not rushed, the food was wonderful and service excellent. I had the white bean soup, full of veggies and beans in a light broth. My main course was an omelette with salad and frites! It was too much! My friends enjoyed their fish choices as well. They raved about it all afternoon. Le Midi is the perfect place for a delicious meal with friends. More

The pastries at Bowery Road are amazing. Chef Summer came out to check on us, and she suggested pancakes and muffins to go with my West Coat Toast and my colleagues breakfast sandwich. The three pancakes were hearty and moist topped with blueberries and the muffins were both crumbly and incredibly moist. The Bowery Road staff also takes great care of their customers to point of selecting delicious coffee and brewing it to perfection. I will definitely be back!! More
