    After years of watching Lidia on her cooking show, my wife and I decided to go to New York and spend our anniversary at Felidia's. It was a magnificient dining experience. The ambient, service, and price were all complimentary to one another. Excellent! Our only disappointment was that, although the food was excellent, my wife had hoped to find some of the more traditional Italian recipes that Lidia is so famous for. Also, we chose a night that Lidia was out of the restaurant, so without her it wasn't perfect, but I hope excellent will suffice.Italiani a Filadelfia

    (the mercer) kitchen is one of jean-georges vongerichten's enterprises in new york city, and probably the cheapest of all of his 4 restaurants in the city. but make no mistake: it is a pricey restaurant (they overcharge on many things; deserts starting at $8, wines and imported water with up to 50% markup). nevertheless, it remains as one of my favorite restaurants. mercer offers good value for the money; similar restaurants in the city have higher prices. but it comes with a caveat... the food was not mind-blowing, slightly better than the average, though it is innovative and beautifully presented. the staff, all in black, was courteous enough, but maybe a bit pretentious? the decor is, however, breathtaking; dim lighting, rich hues of violet and red, dark stained furniture, complimented by earthy tones. and take a look at the restroom: A glass walkway of the Mercer Hotel comprises of the ceiling. the dessert is also incredible; the flan literally melts in your mouth. the bread was tough, not so tasty; but the dipping olive oil... light, intense burst of fruity flavor, just perfect. and they use some of the sweetest tomatoes i have ever tasted in their salads. the mercer kitchen is a trendy spot, set in the heart of soho; it almost seems as if the elegant people in the city all flock here for lunch. and while we know the world is not perfect, it is comforting to know that in the basement of the mercer hotel, at least, everything seems to be perfect; beautiful people drinking their $5 bottle of San Pellegrino. that is how i will remember (the mercer) kitchen.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this first time visit. It will not be the last. The trout special was tasty and the Chilean Sea Bass did not disappoint. Although you have to raise your voice a notch to be heard and the tables were placed too close to each other, they were overshadowed by the fine food and the festive atmosphere.

    Please don't go there. Especially if you are from out of town. We don't want you to know about this family friendly, very good neighborhood restaurant where a family of 4 can eat for less than $50. People think New York is expensive. Keep a secret. But go there, plan to wait a bit, and enjoy nice food, service, fellow diners and a real neighborhood experience.

    Ecco has been one of my downtown favorites since I attended New York Law School just a few blocks away back in the early '90's. From the food to the service and decor it is tops!

    Vong is a feast for the senses. One of the best and most interesting meals I've ever had. The atmosphere is like valium. All you want to do is sit there and stare at the room. The staff is extremely friendly and very knowledgable about the menu. I can't wait to go back.

    The food is tasty, all freshly prepared and the portions are large. The price is average for the area but you can often share one entree. The variety is good. The waiters are polite and courteous, but stay away from the counter between 10 am and 4pm. That's when the owner holds court and you can quickly become a target of his viperous tongue and obnoxious rants. Don Rickles at his best or Howard Stern take note.

    I always enjoy this eatery after leaving a performance at Lincoln Ctr. Never had a bad dish there. Love the atmosphere, authentic dishes and abundance of options. Tried there fish for the first time last night. Delightfully surprised.
