Vanguard Wine Bar review image

Vanguard Wine Bar

Vanguard is a little livelier than your average wine bar, and it probably isn’t the best place for a date. Sure, you could bring someone here and maybe even have a perfectly good time, but it’s more of a place to come with a few friends and eat some cheese while you drink a lot of wine. If you need somewhere to hang before or after a trip to the Lincoln Center, try this place.

The Smith Lincoln Center

That's right, another Infatuation review for yet another location of The Smith. Why? Because The Smith is always there when you need it to be. Sometimes for the food. Sometimes for the bathroom. Either way, it's there, and it's good.

Finally, the kind of restaurant the Upper West Side has long been starved for. The Ribbon has style and substance and does classic food right.

Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This spot is expensive though.
