A Restaurant Row landmark since it opened in 1965, Joe Allen still attracts the same theatre

the likes of Chita Rivera, Rosie O'Donnell, Jimmy Fallon, and their like devour grilled chicken
sandwiches smoothered in Cajun mayonnaise, grilled onions on ciabatta bread, and other
regulars. Al Pacino, digs the endive and watercress salad with Roquefort and walnut
dressing. Pre-theater masses tend are usually tourists. Show biz gypsies are still
a staple. But Joe Allen is most famous for its grilled burgers.

La Grenoulle interior

 Remaining the best, classic French restaurant in New York, by some accounts, the USA, this
grandiose decor sets the perfect backdrop for their famed and stunning floral arrangements.
Gone are
Lutece, La Cote Basque, and La Caravelle, it's comforting that La Grenouille thrives. Owner Charles Masson's
youthful makeover leaves the once awkwardly odd Frog Pond less formidible. Floral exuberance still explodes
everywhere here, and, the incomparable menu blending the classic and new, is now translated into English.

The tour de force behind this 4-star beauty is the renowned Eric Ripert. He famoulsy makes the elegant simple.
The scene is power. This is serious elegance with all the accoutremonts one expects at such a grande kitchen.

Like the old Le Bernardin, the new one tends to feel more like a business club at lunchtime, when the corporate suits
flood in, and no matter what time of day you drop by, the curb outside is lined with an impressive array of gently idling
fat-cat limousines. Once you get used to the Green Hornet outfits, the service is as immaculate as ever, and there are
still four sommeliers on the floor to help customers navigate what is arguably the most refined collection of white wines
on the planet ...the best way to end your meal is with the slim, candy-bar-size crémeux made with wickedly dark
Dominican chocolate. But given the dizzying pace of events at this grand old restaurant, that, too, should change.

Le Relais de Venise LEntrecote outside

590 Lexington Avenue (Between E,51 & E.52 Streets)

Populat midtown brasserie with a menu that focuses a lot of steak frites - and all things inviting. Following a classic
French formula, it's allsimple and delicious.

From New York Magazine... By New York’s elevated beefeater standards, the various meat selections at L’Entrecôte (the approximate French term for “rib eye”) are skimpily sized. But none of this matters very much once you start spooning the sacred house “secret sauce” on your matchbox-size piece of beef and piling it with drifts of the salty, pleasingly crinkly house frites. The recipe for L’Entrecôte’s butter-and-cream-based sauce is closely guarded (the key, according to Le Monde, is an infusion of chicken-liver essence), and it has the ruinously addictive powers of crack cocaine. Non-addicts might notice that their salad is scraggly, that the cheese plate appears to have been bought at the Food Emporium, and that the bread brought to the table by their un-French waitress is dry. But hopeless junkies (like me) won’t care. The dizzying infusion of fatty richness makes dessert superfluous. And at $26.95 for a steak, salad, and all the fries and sauce you can eat, the fix is relatively cheap. — Adam Platt
