Le Petite Maison:
Located in the lower levels of a stately midtown mansion, any of The Real Housewives of New York City might have very well been displaced during the building of restaurant La Petite Maison—and you’d better believe they are clawing their way back in. The linen-covered dining tables along with the fireplaces and pop-art collections, give the illusion of dining in an elegant home sans the stuffy, ladies-who-lunch vibe. While the front rooms resemble the Rockefeller estate it once was, the back room evokes a sense of outdoorsiness with palm trees and luscious, pillowed booths to fall into. As for the food, it's oil, oil everywhere—everything from seafood to spaghetti is bathed in the olive or truffle varieties. The European staple is even incorporated into the décor—climbing shelves display bottles of olive oil along one wall as it they were objects d'arte. Midtown execs and their mistresses and mothers alike will feel at home tasting the French fare and sipping on sangria, while contemporary and jazz tunes sound out at a level just high enough to drown out the buzzing declarations of "The luxury market is back."
