With Andrew Carmellini at the stove, De Niro’s second try at the Greenwich Hotel hits the bull’s-eye.

“This kind of crowd-pleasing cooking isn’t designed to win culinary awards, of course. It’s designed to promote a good time in a casually stylish, relatively economical way, and judging by the crowds of people who are bull-rushing into De Niro’s new restaurant, it’s succeeding”
