Recently I was at the Bowery Hotel and decided to try their restaurant Gemma. What a pleasant surprise! If you like the feeling of an old French Brasserie and are in the mood for Italian this is THE place to try.

Good To Know: Gemma has a back room that can be rented for private events. Maybe your next birthday party? Celebrities Sightings: Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson

Girl Guide review:

With main courses ranging from $15 to $29, Gemma won't break the bank and you'll definitely get that "I just treated myself to a great dinner" feeling! My favorites of the evening were the zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella and ricotta cheese, and the polenta fries! YUM!
