Regularly featured in “Top romantic restaurants of NYC” lists, they sport a long history and beautiful décor that starts on the outside, as the building itself is from 1767. Candlelit tables, two fireplaces popular with couples, a baby grand piano, a private garden, and if, in addition to a classic menu you'd order an extra course “designed for you”, you'll probably be served a ring on flower petals.
The menus range between Prix Fixe, Chef's Tasting, A' la carte, Jazz Brunch, Bar and Dessert. Endless press clippings and awards, parties and other events are all a part of OIBL's life. Arched windows, floral arrangements, brick walls, gold chandeliers, beef Wellington, marinated Colorado lamb, hand-shaped Parmesan cavatelli and a total New York fairy-tale.
