My meal was average but my husband's meat (which was a special) was so tough he couldn't eat it and had to order something else instead. However, the dessert was good. The service was poor. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and we expected better...More

New York has multiple neighborhoods with engaging landmarks. I found Scaletta a beautiful restaurant where the best of "the good old days" becomes accessible. For those like myself who missed out on the glory that WAS Manhattan and the grandeur that IS Manhattan, an evening...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
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,
