Father-and-son restaurateur team Antonio and Mario Cerra pride themselves on Padre Figlio’s masterful presentation of Italian cuisine, which spotlights fine seafood and USDA Prime meats flavored with roasted garlic, rosemary, oregano, and extra-virgin olive oil. The upscale steak house cultivates its elegant atmosphere through walls decked in warm vermillion and brilliant gold leaf, tucked-away booths, and dining areas bordered by velvet drapery. Cloth-clad tables frame plates laden with imported buffalo mozzarella, Chilean sea bass, tender porterhouse steaks, and plump gnocchi dumplings swimming in tomato-basil sauce, all paired with cocktails and martinis from the bar or selections from an extensive wine list. Intimate dining experiences unfold in three private rooms with distinct visual accents, from the garden balcony's sweeping views of 44th Street to the velvet room's up-close vistas of textile weaves.
The Cerra family and friends serve their Italian steak-house fare backed with plenty of critical acclaim, earning a coveted Zagat rating and winning over New York Magazine with the restaurant's traditional sicilian pastas, tender cuts of steak, and creamy gelato.
At Steamers Landing, someone is always watching you eat. But not like when you’ve been served early, and are enduring the glowers of dining companions who told you it was ok to start. No, this is the stoic gaze of Lady Liberty—just one of the sights to behold while savoring today’s deal: $25 for $50 worth of cuisine at Steamers Landing, the Battery Park City restaurant lounging contentedly on the banks of the Hudson River.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
Windows that stretch from floor to ceiling frame snapshots of New York Harbor all year long. For the best view, however, step out to the patio on a warm summer day. Sailboats share the busy waterway with ferries shuttling tourists to nearby Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty poses for pictures just a stone's throw away.
New Yorkers would flock to the Wild Edibles Market just before suppertime to get their hands on its boat-fresh seafood selections. To make things easier, the market added an intimate, full-service restaurant, where customers kick back with local brews while staff do all the work crafting cod cakes and salmon burgers.
Located in the heart of the Financial District, The Ketch tempts diners with seasonally rotating menus of hearty cuisine that’s ideal for both a power lunch or refined dinner. Grilled Angus steaks and organic chicken appear in select entrees, but seafood is the real star. Maine lobster rolls and the maryland crab cakes draw inspiration for marine locales close to New York, while grilled, blackened, stir-fried, pan-roasted, and raw fish and seafood demonstrate the range of flavors inherent in New American cuisine. If the seafood-heavy menu doesn’t make The Ketch’s maritime inclinations apparent enough, then the bright and airy dining room’s décor will remove all doubt. A gigantic glass display case features intricate scale models of sailboats and sail-like squares of canvas hang from the sky-blue ceiling. One entire room is even wallpapered with large scraps of nautical charts and maps.
