The other evening I met a friend for dinner at the Bryant Park Grill, which boasts Parisian-style dining and is located right behind the New York Public Library at 25 West 40th Street in Bryant Park. Here are some sites you’ll see as you walk through the park to the restaurant.

The Bryant Park Grill also offers American-style cuisine with a wine list complimenting those options.  There are 26 selections from California served by the glass.

Having generated an appetite after strolling through the park and possessing a preference for well-prepared chicken dishes,  I ordered the Organic Chicken stuffed with mushrooms, mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, and carrots.

This chicken dish ranks among the finest meals I’ve enjoyed. 

I heartily recommend the Bryant Park Grill because of the food and atmosphere.  Reservations are recommended because even on a Wednesday night, seating was limited.

Bon appetit!

I frequently dine around Manhattan while checking out the latest shows, jazz, and classical music venues. Friends recently reminded me that unique, excellent restaurants and sites could be found minutes away in Jersey City.

Pershing Square Café

I’ve often enjoyed Pershing Square Café’s wonderful breakfast specials and especially their legendary pancakes. After enjoying an early evening of swinging jazz across town at Birdland Jazz Club, I walked east from 8th Ave through Times Square on 42nd Street, past Bryant Park and Grand Central towards peaceful Tudor City. Nestled next to Grand Central where Park Avenue intersects 42nd Street is the Pershing Square Café. Tonight, it looked like the perfect quiet place for a post-jazz bite.
