      1. Asiate, Lure Fishbar, Mercer Kitchen, Buddakan, Spice Market, Central Park Boathouse, BG at Bergdorf Goodman

        1. Gorgeous spaces: Eleven Madison Park, Town, Cafe Sabarsky
          Umatchable old NY ambiance - Keens
          Lanmarked interior, including amazing Gustavino ceiling - Wolfgang's (33rd St. location)
          Lovely lake view: The Boathouse in Central Park

          1. I agree with Spice Market, Buddakhan and Buddah Bar. All three have a cool vibe and decor. The scene is half of why people go there and the food is fairly good too. Especially Spice Market - they are probably my favorite in the Meat Packing District.
