The food was good as was the service. This is an old chestnut in the neighborhood. If you drive there is plenty of on street parking after 7:00pm. Great location if you are going to the Irish Repotory Theater.

Cozy restaurant, homey atmosphere. They offer daily specials. We had the ribeye steak (delicious, prepared exactly as requested, fresh asparagus), pasta (generous portion, great sauce), salmon (nice portion). Had there tiramisu for dessert which was delicious. So glad we stopped in.

Mediocre at best. There is nothing in food, drinks, service and atmosphere that is memorable about this Flatiron District restaurant, The cuisine is a mixed bag of Italian and Mediterranean fare. The price for drinks and food for a New York location are very reasonable....More

architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was

Not the owner, so I don't know the answer. However, if they are serving T-day dinner, it would seem like a good option.
