Manhattan Elite Prep's staff of teachers and consultants carries firsthand experience navigating the complicated labyrinth of school admissions. Some were students whose high test scores and poignant essays got them into top PhD and Ivy League MBA programs. Some consultants served on admissions committees of coveted schools and know what experience, qualities, and acrobatic feats make student applications stand out. Now, this team of insiders at a firm with more than 10 years of experience pools its knowledge to help students who are serious about acing tests and placing in their top schools. They emphasize efficiency, packing as much information as they can into the time allotted, and exceeding beyond minimum requirements. Courses covering entrance tests teach students to work smarter, ruling out wrong answers and budgeting their time wisely, and essay consultants pare down applications to deliver rich content in a limited word count. Customers may complete classes online or interact in-person with their instructors as well as fellow students.

La Gran Terraza's chefs concoct upscale California comestibles, adding a Mediterranean undercurrent to many dishes on the varied menu. Pairs prime bellies with a shared appetizer, such as the lobster bisque or the seared foie gras, in preparation for entrees such as the seafood cassoulet, which combines seafood stew with organic vegetables topped with a saffron-cream sauce, and the entrecôte frites, whose grilled rib-eye steak sashays onto plates with an entourage of organic vegetables and pommes frites. Postmeal, diners can freely share or arm-wrestle each other for a dessert such as the chocolate-and-lemon-cream cake served with Stone Levitation ice cream, and two glasses of the house merlot or chardonnay lubricate creaky chewing jaws and mouth bones.
