La Giara

I’ve only been here for brunch, but I’d love to come back for dinner. Located in Murray Hill, La Giara has a lovely terrace, which I enjoyed during the summer, and classically good food with French-Italian influences. And while I love NYC for its diners, La Giara offers a classier alternative if you’re looking for something a little different. The waiter was hilarious and charming, and the french toast, served with beautiful presentation, wasn’t too heavy on the stomach, or the wallet.
