Best on decor & atmosphere

want2go | Oct 26, 201808:01 AM

Country come to city. Please list your thoughts where decor & atmosphere rule! Doesn't have to be fancy. Would like a WOW, interesting, not just pretty furnishing... something you rarely find. Maybe food with a WOW presentation. a place you'd take someone from out of town, that isn't necessarily a foodie. Touristy is fine (though we've been to many of those... Katz, Juniors, John's Pizza, Girmaldi, etc) NOT like planet hollywood, rainforrest, chainy type stuff. Something that will make you smile when the thought comes up, years from now.
One's that have hit the spot in past visits:
21 Club (love the toys on the ceiling)
Budakan (wow!)
Delmonico's (the history, the charm, the originators of so many dishes)
Ellen's (know that makes some cringe)
Japanese conveyor belt
Serendipity
Don't be afraid to mention anything... more the better!

21 Club,
Buddakan,
Delmonico's,
Ellen’s Stardust Diner,
Serendipity 3
