We ordered an early dinner here a few nights ago. They offer a three-course dinner for two that was a wonderful bargain, with really excellent onion soup to start, a choice of the usual standbys for the main course, and a variety of desserts. The soup and main course were so filling that we could just sample one serving of dessert. Just one caveat: the steak we ordered came well-done, though we had requested that it be cooked medium-rare, which seems to be routine nowadays in NY-restaurant world.

Nancy and I had a wonderful meal. The crab cakes were terrific and not loaded with filling. Enjoyed the duck confit and the chocolate cake was light and delicious.

I really don't like this place, as I do all the places in the city slapped next to a major tourist attraction. This place is all atmosphere and not much of anything else. They are neither a real restaurant or a real deli. I work in one of the Rockefeller buildings so I have been here many times and know what I'm talking about. They seem to have a rigid stipulation for everything such as no bagels after 10am even if they have some left over. They're always running out of items before the breakfast or lunch crowd is out. And certain items they don't carry at all, like muenster cheese, even though every other deli in the area does. On top of that, their prices are just awful. Across the street, I can get such a better deal, better service and more choices than at Cucina. This place is just another tourist trap sucking travelers and local employees dry while trying to pass it as upscale.

I split my week between Manhattan and Jersey City. I used to look forward to a good cup of coffee and a pastry from Cucina, when I was in the city. But recently, the coffee has become really boring. The prices are now comparable to Starbucks, just next door, but the coffee does not compare.

The food, service and atmosphere were great. There was hardly a wait to get a table for two on a Saturday night. I only wish that the bread was served warm. Other than that I have no complaints what-so-ever.

This is a seriously good lunch place with great sandwiches, soups, hot bar, panini bar, etc. The food tastes a little like Mangia. I LOVE the chicken caesar wrap---practically the only chicken wrap I've ever had that wasn't dry.
