CLOSED FOR YEARS – I'm shocked that Citysearch still has this up, the place has been shuttered up for at least 4 years.
Mojitos and caipirhinhas fly in this reincarnation of the legendary Havana-themed supper club. – The Scene
Fifty years ago, the original Flamingo Room ruled the roost from the Waldorf-Astoria, but there's still a bit of Havana-meets-high-society to be found at this reincarnation. Dining for less than $40 gives this supper club a leg up in Manhattan's most over-loungified neighborhood. And although a Cohiba cigar won't fly in the luxe deco interior--a vision in stainless steel and pink from the owners of El Flamingo--mojitos and caipirinhas will.
Staff in crisp white jackets serve a wide selection of traditional Latin entrees, spiked with exotic sides like yucca and plantains, as well as starters from the delicious raw bar. A moist filet of salmon is double-charred and served on a purple mound of beet-stained couscous, while a tender filet mignon gets some kick from foie gras butter and mashed potatoes laced with white truffles.
great place for a reception – My husband and I hosted an informal wedding reception for +/- 40 guests in the bar area; something I recommend for any small to mid sized group!
Stationed appetizers were served, and we had a champagne toast. The service was great, the bartender was attentive and friendly, and the music (level and type) were just right.
South Beach in Manhattan – over the summer i was in South Beach on Colins and Ocean Ave i loved the music the excitement and the deco ambiance that can only be found in South Beach... until now from the moment my date and i walked into the flamingo room i felt i was back in South Beach the music , the excitement were all there but this was better it had a feeling of class and old world charm that i have never experienced i have never seen such attention to detail from the decor to the waiters unique uniforms all the way down to the custom flamingo room plates and can you believe this they even had flamingos on their silverware this place is unbelieveable i can't wait to go back
Manhattan meets Miami – The Flamingo room was amazing. I felt like I was in the mist of Miami w/ the Tall Palm trees & pink walls.... & the Bistro is to die for. It's a mix of Latin & Italian - My two favorites. It's a must.. Bring the girls, b/c there are always cutties there
