What is the name of this restaurant?

idia Oct 6, 2007 07:41 AM

I am looking for the name of the Italian restaurant near Lincoln Center off of Broadway (maybe closer to Columbus) and possibly 65th or 66th, on the right hand side of the street going toward Columbus.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks a lot.

    That's a tricky one...I would suggest doing a search in maps.google.com. First find the area and then do a search nearby.

      Menupages lists these Italian restaurants in the W. 60's:


      Of course, while Menupages is pretty comprehensive, the one you are asking about might not be included on the site.

        Could be Landmarc. I think it opened earlier this year. Had lunch there some months ago and enjoyed>

          Since Landmarc is in the Time-Warner Center, it doesn't fit idia's location description.

            oh yes, misread the Columbus reference!

            Thanks so much JoanN.
            So what do you all think of this place for about 12 people?
            I am responsible for a small group of people in that area for Italian food at a rather reasonable price.
            I was going to choose Il Violino but Nick & Tony's was also recommended.
            Having never been there, I hesitate.

              Nick and Toni's is very small. I'm not sure they could even handle 12 people. Call and ask. The food at Nick and Toni's is far (far!) better than Il Violino. But I must admit, even though it's just a block away from me, I stopped going to Il Violino years ago. The food is (was) no better than fair and, particularly when busy, I found the service horrendous. So I'm prejudiced against it. Another choice for Italian in the same neighborhood, which I think is better than Il Violino but not as good as Nick and Toni's, is Caffe La Fenice on B'way between 68th and 69th.

                I appreciate your comments. And you helped make my decision.
                I am a (irr)regular goer to La Fenice which I find "OK" (duh!) for a neighborhood restaurant. They know me there so maybe I will just stick with that one instead of experimenting (especially with 12 people).
                Thanks again to all for your helpful comments.
