AskMen 7/14/11. The minimalist dining room of oak tables, chairs and floors is complimented by a warmer, more expressive menu of dishes like fried chicken with pickled watermelon rind and grilled sweetbreads.

Step into the ground floor restaurant of the newly opened Nolitan Hotel and relax. It's easy to get cozy at this uber hip locale because, well, while they haven't quite hit their stride in bringing in the crowds, their excellent seasonal, American menu is matched by their friendly service. A diverse wine list with interesting picks Eastern European picks levels out the experience. And, while it may not be the most packed of hotel restaurants, it still draws an upscale crowd; on Joonbug's last visit we spotted a Gossip Girl star.
Thrillist 7/24/11Kick things off at this New American resto with the high-minded deconstructed "chowder" of raw clams, cod, and leeks (topped w/ caviar).
Mari S.9/3/11Great place for breakfast; soothing music and good light. Get the turkey sausage on the side if it doesn't come with your meal.
