If you really want to see a chef work his magic inside a Manhattan dining room, speaking and socializing with his guests, you'll definitely want to visit Porter House New York. Executive Chef and Managing Partner Michael Lomonaco lights up the main dining room with his presence when he comes out to chat with his customers. The incredibly congenial chef is known not only for his New American Cuisine, but also for his esteemed pedigree. His resume includes positions at the original Le Cirque, The 21 Club and Windows on the World, where he oversaw the restaurant, Wild Blue, and the Greatest Bar on Earth, as well as consulting gigs with Noche and Gustavinos that had him developing both concepts and menus. Chef Lomonaco is also a noted television personality, having starred for several years on Michael's Place on the Food Network and on Epicurious on the Travel Channel. What's more, Chef Lomonaco has authored two cookbooks, 1995's '21' Cookbook and 2004's Nightly Specials.

Of course, Chef Lomonaco isn't only an excellent chef; he's also a dedicated philanthropist. As founder and officer of the Windows of Hope Family Relief Fund, he's raised over $19 million for the families of Sept. 11 victims. To say that he cares is an understatement. He's absolutely and completely committed to everything he does, including serving guests at Porter House New York. He wants them - and you - to have as pleasurable an experience as possible, and he's done everything to ensure it, from working with noted architect and restaurant designer Jeffrey Beers in building a comfortable atmosphere to searching for the finest quality meats and produce to serve you for your meal. And to top things off, either during or after every meal, he'll take at least one jaunt through the dining room to say hello to his guests. If that's not caring, what is? The hospitality at this restaurant is a major wow factor, especially in a city like Manhattan, which isn't exactly known (although unrightfully so) for its pleasantries.
