Mediterranean | Meatpacking District, Manhattan

I've eaten at the 5th Avenue location numerous times but have never been to the Meatpacking location. I had a group of out of town guests who wanted to walk the High Line and the location was perfect. Service was wonderful, our pear sangria hit the spot and everyone enjoyed their food. We had a fantastic time. I will definitely visit again when in the area. More

The menu by executive chef Michael Dolan will feature inventive takes on seafood including a "Taco Bar," hence the title "Whale". However, it also will include a wide selection of meat presentations, or "Iron". With its Asbury Boardwalk location, outdoor ocean view dining will be a strong feature of the Iron Whale. Indoors will also house an open kitchen, a fireplace, along with a private meeting or party room. The Iron Whale promises to be another exciting addition to the already resurgent Asbury Park scene and will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner year-round.More

Mexicue - UESMexicue - UES

Tex-Mex | Upper East Side, Manhattan

It all started with a passion for real, made-from-scratch cooking in a food truck that traversed Manhattan and Brooklyn, embracing the vibrant culture of the city. From concert fans to festival goers, day-trippers to lunch-breakers— we fed them all, body and soul. Today, Mexicue has evolved into a restaurant — and lively bar scene — that does things a little differently than the other guys. A little more boldly. And with a lot more flavor and fun. We smoke, braise, char, pickle, juice, mash, grind and create — in a way that is inspired by the Mexican tradition. All with a twist of the American South. We believe in authentic, down-home cooking techniques. Nothing fancy about it. Just good music. Strong, quality drinks. Shareable, mouth-watering food. That’s all the ingredients you need for the perfect neighborhood escape. Created for making memories and kicking back. The ultimate place to unwind and dine — or order a round of tequila to take the night to the next level. More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
