We were 8 people with different food issues and the restaurant could accommodate all. We had the tasting menu and it was out of the ordinary. The sommelier was knowledgeable and came up with good suggestions. Highly recommendable.

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,
