(E) Maristella Restaurant - Vote for Zagat



"...this busy midtown 'oasis' serves the best of Northern Italian cuisine with a touch ofCroatian..." 


"Followers say it's 'about time' this 'overlooked', midpriced Midtown 'gem' made it into the Survey; its 'delicious' Northern Italian cooking draws nearby desk jockeys at lunchtime, and its slightly 'formal' vibe is occasionally enlivened by a 'waiter who bursts into song'."

If you know the restaurant, owners, food or if you simple want to support them.
I can personally vouch for Maristella because I have been there many times. (Nenad Bach):
