The food is good, the atmosphere nice, but there isn't anything really notable about this restaurant. The food is priced average ($10-15 for appetizers, $23-25 entrees) and is definitely good, but the portions are small. The lamb, however, is some of the best that I've had, but they give you 7-8 small slices. The paella is good, but nothing exciting. The halibut is fresh and cooked well. I liked the flatbread, especially the tuna tartare (with a small shaving of parmesian). The beef shortrib flatbread was decent. But for $12, the flatbread is a little overpriced for the neighborhood (6 small squares). I do recommend this place, but there are so many other restaurants out there that I wouldn't be going back... PS-- It's no longer BYOB, and the wines range from $30-200. I had initially chosen this place hoping we could BYOB, but now, without the cost-effective dining out option, this place went from a great deal to just another good place in NYC.
Pros: easy to get in (make reservations), good quality food
Cons: not that exciting-- new american/italian
