Moran's

“Walking into Moran's during the week it would seem like your average restaurant/pub, but looks can be deceiving. My husband and I visited several catering halls and researched a few restaurants for our wedding, but nothing seemed like the right fit until we saw Moran's. The restaurant is very warm a... ”

Nation Restaurant & Bar

“Now that summer is over we are heading back to our spot Point Break on 45th St. Very laid back and the staff very friendly.

“We recently discovered a fun place in midtown called Point Break. We probably head there once a week for the fish tacos. Very laid back atmosphere and love the pic of Patrick Swayze.

“My office just had a great party at this place called Point Break on 45th St in midtown. They have a few different floors and rooms but our function was on the 2nd fl. Nice to have a midtown spot that isnt so fancy and formal, Point Break was fun and seems to cater to younger professionals who still... ”

However once you arrive it is an oasis of great food at reasonable prices in a very comfortable setting;always plenty of fresh floral arrangements.It has thrived there for thirty years under the same ownership. They h... ”

“We were skeptical at first but several of my friends have only said good things so we gave it a shot. What a pleasant surprise. the food was excellent. We had the wings to start. They were huge.

Ashton's Alley

“I had never been to Ashton's before last night. The experience was disappointing, the TV's were on, fans twirling at an outdoor temperature of below 32F. The restaurant is small, therefore the location of our table was in the open with a view of everybody entering the bar.The waitress did not ask o... ”
