I'm a big Bobby Flay fan and being our first time in NYC this was a reservation we'd been looking forward to for weeks. But we were let down in several ways unfortunately. For a start, we got a wobbly table. Probably a bad sign....More

Beautiful restaurant, cool bar. Great menu with lots of good choices. The potato chips with the blue cheese dip is wonderful.

I personally think that the prices are within the range of good NYC restaurants. Lunch prices are a bit lower than dinner prices.
