We had a wonderful meal and time at the Club 21. We sat at the same table that Bud Fox and Gordon Gecko sat at in the movie Wall Street. Same table that Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, sits at. Really fun looking at all the toys/gifts hanging from the ceiling. Our waiter, Phillip, was wonderful. He made feel right at home. The parsnip soup was amazing and my steak tartar was the best I have ever had. This meal was the final meal for our NY vacation and it was perfect!! More

Tapas / Small Plates | NoMad, Manhattan

Very good tapas. Service was confused as two different servers seemed to not know who was responsible for us. Our drinks did not arrive simultaneously and we had to ask for one dish which had apparently not been ordered with the rest of our food. More

Barbecue | Chelsea, Manhattan

See all specials

This is a true Texas meat market. You go to the counter and select the meat(s) you want of Texas barbecue (brisket both lean and moist, ribs and prime rib along with chicken) and a separate counter for the sides. You can have as much as you want and you are charged for that. This is a casual restaurant and can be loud during peak times. The food is excellent and the people are really friendly. We were in Austin a week ago and visited places liked this both in the food and the decor so it is authentic. More

Contemporary American | TriBeCa - Downtown, Manhattan

The food was delicious. The chef was rude. We were a party of 4 with a moderate noise level coming from our table. One of the waitstaff came over and let us know that the chef requested us to lower our voices. At over $500 per person with alcohol, I found this rude and unacceptable. We have dined at many top restaurants around the world, Eleven Madison, etc and have never been “scolded” at our table with our guests. More
