Highly overrated. the lobster ravioli was just awful. lacked a nice sauce and was tasteless. the artichoke appetizer was unmemorable. the only memorable thing were the amazing flowers to watch not to eat. the champagne was not cold enough and neither was the white wine.

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of
