In the Midtown area which sorely lacks in mid-priced, sophisticated restaurants, Salute! is one spot you can count on. Here you will find a wide range of good Mediterranean and Italian fare. The restaurant gets crowded during lunch on weekdays and after work. Fried calamari and gourmet pizzas are menu standouts, but most other items are also worth ordering. The bar in front is a popular spot for a drink and a casual rendezvous.
This was a lovely dining experience. Interesting selections of food; we taste a lobster pasta dish and an excellent Chilean sea bass. The Caesar salad was the best I ever had. The service was very accommodating. The ambiance was fine; not extraordinary.
The seating could be roomier and the price was a bit steep. $150 before tip for 2, including 2 entrees, a bottle of wine. No appetizers. We split the salad and a delicious chocolate dessert.
My husband and I had dinner with another couple. Found the food to be outstanding! Didn't realize the chef is one of the contestants on Top Chef. That's cool! The restaurant is beautiful. The wait staff is friendly, and not intrusive. We were not rushed and can't wait to come back.
