Minado

Japanese. Good Food. Great Prices. Its Buffet style so one price fits all. Minimalist Decor. Good Service. Convenient Midtown Location. Its an all you can stomach buffet of Sushi, Tempura, and Crab Legs. Its all included in the price of the buffet. Crepes, Oysters on the half shell, and Green Tea Ice Cream. The factory line sushi is good for the price but I still prefer the make-it-as-you-order-it sushi.

Antica Venezia

Italian. Great Food. Decent Prices. Warm Decor with Great River Views. Entertaining Service. A little out of the way Location. They provided us with two on the house pre-appetizer appetizers, Bruschetta and Zucchini Fries. Both delicious. I order a special appetizer and entree. The appetizer was calamari and the entree was a giant scallops with risotto. Both excellent. During dessert (I ordered the creme brulee) they offer free house liquors of Limocello and others, as well as Grappa. The Grappa was powerful but tasty. Service was great, straight out of the fifties.
