Always had great food here -- visitied 3-4 times, though the service could sometimes be very slow..... Unfortunately, just checked for reservations for an upcoming trip and it has closed and is now an Italian restaurant.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
