My wife ordered the avocado toast, which cost $16, expecting to receive a nice breakfast. Instead, they brought out one piece of toast, with what looked like store bought guacamole on it, topped with one egg. IMHO thats barely sufficient quantity for a starter dish...More

My grandson and I ate here every night of our stay at Hotel Lucerne. He is 2 years old. We had a table at the front, looking out to the street. We were given a high chair, bread, and drinks almost immediately upon sitting down....More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
