One of my favorite restaurant's closed this winter.
Andre Restaurant on West 56th Street (between Bway
and 8th) was a quiet friendly place with fabulous food and wonderful service. It was next to an enormous construction site and it may just not have been able to hold on.
The last time we went to dinner there was early on New Year's Eve. We didn't want to be part of a party but we wanted a good meal around 7. We showed up at the door without a reservation and they took us in with a smile. (that was the night that all of midtown was guilianied-off and you couldn't go into midtown without being patted down by embarrassed police)
Well, we went back after about four months and there was a chain on the door. It was so sad. I have no idea what happened.
