I live in Chicago but I must visit the Leopard every time I go to NY. For the price it is one of the best meal values in NY. The service is always superb and the menu varies. The wines are provided so don't expect greatness. I tell my friends that this is a romantic, old world restaurant that is a wonderful getaway from touristy pricey NY restaurants.
Go there you will not be disappointed. And tell Vincent his friend, Jim, from Chicago sent you.
Pros: Value, Great Service, Initmate dining
Cons: Small, Dim lighting, Rich food
