The food is very good but I do think expensive. It is also noisy. They do have an outside eating area and if weather was better we would have eaten there. The wines are all Greek so I had a Greek beer

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural

Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
