Principe was a great experience. We were welcomed warmly, and seated at a great table downstairs. The server took drink and appetizer orders quickly while we scanned the menu. We had a party of 6 so we shared - tuna crudo, scallops, then salads and finally mains. The chicken was the overall favorite, but the branzino and duck were also fantastic! Then dessert -- decadent and delicious.

About the restaurant
Offering seasonally focused, contemporary American seafood, where only the finest and freshest seafood is highlighted. Guests will be enchanted by the superb selection of raw bar favorites and delicious appetizers which include East & West Coast Oysters, Chilled Lobster, and expertly seasoned Yellowfin Tuna Tartare. Entrée selections are sure to delight, with succulent Alaskan King Crab Legs, elegant Herb Basted Black Bass and the menu wouldn't be complete without the addition of Sea Fire Grill's Surf & Turf - tender filet mignon and buttery steamed lobster and grilled shrimp.

My first time and definitely a great restaurant. It feels very high end, like a nice steak house. Delicious food, quiet and classy ambiance, very professional waiters in uniform. They specialize in a lot of seafood but their steaks are excellent as well. it is a pricey meal but definitely worth a visit. For a business dinner, romantic dinner or just a celebration with friends.

About the restaurant


With a commitment to the freshest, most flavorful fish, flown in daily from the Greek islands and featured in its open fish market, Milos offers a dining experience based on the simplicity and sincerity of the Mediterranean diet. The restaurant's airy, elegant setting is reminiscent of the Greek islands. Founder and chef Costas Spiliadis continues the standard of excellence and hospitality he began in Montreal, where he opened the original Milos.

Outstanding all around. Our waiter, James, was fabulous. Attentive but not overbearing. Food was great. I had the sea bass, wife had the grouper. Both very good. Bartender made a great Manhattan, too! Recommend!

Great ambience and lively atmosphere. The crispy sishi rice and shrimp tempura appetizers were wonderfully prepared. Miso Salmon entree and Lobster Mac both top notch too.

East Village
About the restaurant
Upstate Craft Beer & Oyster Bar puts what it does right in its name. This is a place custom designed for fans of local small-batch brews and a well-stocked raw bar. The inside of the restaurant is as cozy and comfortable as one would expect, as it is a relaxed atmosphere similar to a sports bar in the off-season. One of the keys to Upstate's success is its commitment to freshness. So much so that there isn't even a freezer in the building as everything is brought in fresh daily.Obviously, the oysters and clams are what most patrons come for, and Upstate's selection of west and east coast varieties changes every day, depending on what is available. That's certainly not the only thing on the menu, though. Guests can try out shared plates of house cured salmon, crab cakes, squid salad and even sea urchin.

Lovely staff. Good oysters. I was underwhelmed with the soft shell crab and shrimp dishes I had. A lot of breading, not much flavor. My dining partners enjoyed their fettuccine and clam dish and their tuna tartare and the crab cakes—which I tasted and though were too much filling, not enough crab.
