    Hatsuhana Restaurant, 10017 Grand Central Station
  17 East 48th Street - (Madison-5th Aves.) - New York, NY            
The single inspiration that lead to the establishment of Hatsuhana was nothing more than the desire to introduce unsurpassed sushi and sashimi to New Yorkers. We've always felt that every restaurant should have something special that they want to share. Since the first day we opened our doors in 1976, we have been a sushi specialty restaurant. This has helped us maintain our focus on sushi and excel at the one thing that mattered most.

Fifty feet from Carnegie Hall and near Central Park South and all midtown hotels, The Redeye Grill derives its name from the infamous late-night flight linking America's two cultural hubs. The fusion of the two coasts is present both in this grand café's interior design and its menu. The centerpiece of the restaurant is the fabulous dancing shrimp, sushi and raw bar - bookended by two giant bronze dancing shrimp sculptures specially crafted in Italy.

    La Bonne Soupe, 10019 Murray Hill
  48 W. 55th Street - (5th-6th Aves.) - New York, NY           
Jean-Paul and Monique Picot took the bistro's name from the avant garde comedy La Bonne Soupe by the French playwright Félicien Marceau, which had a long successful run in Paris in the 1950's. The three-act play, starring Jeanne Moreau and Marie Bell, ends with the words "Et hop! Par ici, la bonne soupe!" here meaning: "step up (to the roulette tables), and put your money down, which will give you winnings and ensure you the good life." The play was such a success, it was followed in 1963 by a Twentieth Century Fox Film bearing the same title and based on Félicien Marceau's original 1958 play. Among top-ranking stars in the film were Annie Girardot, Jean-Claude Brialy, Claude Dauphin and Franchot Tone.

The Main Course - by Paul Wein
"I've eaten at hundreds of restaurants throughout my life, but I've never had a dining experience like the one I had at Notaro Restaurant.
Specializing in authentic Tuscan cuisine, Notaro offers a type of food found nowhere else. That's because Angelo, the restaurant's owner, grew up with this wonderful cuisine his entire life. So his Tuscan tenure, combined with the experience of his chef, promise his customers a culinary compilation of cosmic proportions."
    Tamarind Restaurant, 10010 Madison Square
  41-43 E. 22nd Street - (Park Ave. South-Broadway) - New York, NY           
Owner Avtar Walia created a sophisticated, warm and harmonious setting for Tamarind in New York City's bustling Flatiron section to reflect the diverse foods of India's regions when he opened his trend-setting restaurant in January 2001. He selected the name Tamarind for his first solo restaurant venture to showcase the versatility of a beloved ingredient, one that is familiar and used extensively in the preparation of the subcontinent's cuisine.
Instead of concentrating on one of India's many cuisines, Mr. Walia offered a wide range of dishes featuring unique and seductive spices and unusual ingredients prepared by a team of expert, dedicated chefs. Tamarind's cool and elegant space with its vibrant modern look coupled with subtle traditional elements, was quickly embraced by New Yorkers and visitors from around the United States and countries abroad. It occupies 4,500 square feet in a former Woolworth company warehouse, with seating for 130 people.
