If you want an exceptional restaurant near Central Park on the West Side and near Lincoln Center, I strongly recommend the Leopard restaurant. It is elegant, service is impeccable and tables are separated so you don’t hear conversation if others. There is a Prix Fixe...More

The Des Artists has been one of my favorite restaurants for more than fifty years, and I never hesitate to recommend it. The original restaurant (which offered French fare) was owned by George Lang who closed it in 2007 when he was 85 years old...More

A very nice venue. Formerly the Cafe de Artistes (the late George Lang's - nee György Deutsch - major opus). The Italian format is restrained and elegant. The menu is thoughtful, reasonably diverse, and well priced. Our waiter and staff were more than gracious, and...More

There are many things going for this restaurant- convenient to Lincoln Center, attentive service, classy interior, and interesting Sicilian menu. It’s very expensive and the food does not quite match the high prices although it is close. We dined on veal chops, bucatini with sardines,...More

Very romantic setting. We were running a bit late and the were more than gracious about it. Food was good; service excellent. A bit more selection and variety in the menu would have pushed it to excellent. Block from Lincoln center

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the

quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

Located in the New York landmarked Hotel Des Artistes, and surrounded by the astonishing 1920s murals by Howard Chandler Christy, THE LEOPARD at des Artistes finds its roots in the area once known as “The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies” (mid 1800s) and in the culinary traditions of the regions of Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Apulia, Sardinia, and of course Sicily, reaching a balance between dishes based on rural elements, such as pasta, vegetables, cheese, and seafood ingredients from the Costiera.
