Cucina & Co.

We have had dinner at Cucina a number of times. It's informal but really nice. Its' convenient to Grand Central (down the hall) and has a really good fixed price dinner for two - now $31 FOR TWO!!. Also, with that a glass of house wine is only $4. We have tried the salmon and the very fine roast chicken- they are both very good. The a la cart menu is well priced as well. The service is competent, not elegant( this is not a 4 star restaurant). Last time the manager came over to see how everything was - a nice touch which many " hot" expensive restaurants don't seem to care about these days. If you are seeing a show or have another event and are coming into the city with Metro North, try this place. You should not be disappointed.

OK I realize it's midtown, but they're way overpriced and they do charge you .25 for any additional butter pats if you asked for more than the standard 2 pats. Prices are excluding tax so you'll pay even more when you check out...and don't expect a courteous or pleasant disposition on the way out. The food is generally good and fresh but at a cost.

The location is convenient and you can breeze through and pick up a quick so-so lunch. But the cashiers barely speak to you, NEVER say thank you and basically want you to push the person in front of you out of the way. Plus a small plastic clamshell of fresh fruit from their cold bar can cost you up to $12. But they also charge you for butter to go with a muffin you have already paid for.

Five of us have met at Cucina bi-monthly for over eight years for bookclub meetings. That says something positive: On balance, the location-price-quality-quantity-service-atmosphere ratio is good.

Cucina & Co. is great for a quick lunch or sit down meal. Its fresh ingredients and unique variety set it apart from those other run-of-the-mill nyc cafes. The dinner for two special is an amazing deal - a three course meal for two people for $24.95! Paninis, soups and pastries are also top notch. Definitely worth visiting.

The coffee at Cucina Grand Central had always been (well in the last few yrs or so, ), pretty good. However, in the last few months ... gone downhill,,, if you want water ..drink the coffee (not much difference),, alas, perhaps mgmt saves pennies ...yet a long time customer(s)....lost...gone for good coffee, elsewhere.

Great Place to get lunch or something on the way home (located upstairs from Grand Central). Excellent service.
