Avoid the congestion of New York City down on the ground, and take to the sky to see Manhattan during this NYC helicopter tour. Catch sight of the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, George Washington Bridge, and many other top attractions without standing in line or sitting in traffic.

So-so. Entranceway is far too crowded: a narrow stairwell attempting to accommodate musicians and their large instruments squeezing past a long line of customers standing in the blistering cold for over an hour. The venue is very small and, again, very crowded; a maze to get to your seat and out again. Improvements to the venue such as a move to a better location should definitely be on the menu. Cod roe pasta was decent but Japanese curry rice tasted like a microwavable home meal. Jazz music is either your cup of tea or it's not; either way there is a cover charge even if you're just there to eat.

Tiny jazz speakeasy type club - no sign - no reservations. Saw an amazing jazz group there, had the best lemon drop martini I've ever had (and I try them everywhere they are offered) and had delicious japanese food - marinated squid, noodles & egg, omelet & rice, etc. We had to wait outside about 40 minutes but there are a few heaters. The place is very small so they have no room to have people wait inside; you have to ring the doorbell to get in.

I dislike calling something "a find," since I hardly discovered a place, like some Vasco de Gama, but Tomi Jazz was a great new place to experience. On the East Side, somewhat near Grand Central Station and the U.N., down some dark stairs, is the Tomi Jazz Club. A steel door greets you, but if you push a button, eventually a smiling Japanese dude lets you into a tiny, crowded basement bo?te, with a serious bar tucked into a corner. In the opposite corner is a piano and a microphone. Maybe 8 to 10 small tables are available. Six to eight seats are available at the bar. There is an upstairs with an additional 4 or 5 tables. Tomi is tiny. Owned and managed by people from Japan, the staff and most of the patrons are young, good looking, fashionable Japanese New Yorkers, giving Tomi an exotic ambiance. The liquor and whiskey choices are top shelf at Tomi. I was drinking Crystal Head Vodka. The music on this Thursday night was more pop than jazz, and the singer had a nice voice, but her soulful song selection didn't match her Gilbert and Sullivan chops. James Brown, Ben E. King, and Stevie Wonder are quite distant from Gilbert and Sullivan. I loved the Tomi Jazz Club and would frequent the place often if I still lived in the city of my youth. While the staff was not cheery, they were professional, honest and helpful. I never felt any concern about being an old dude. It doesn't matter at places like Tomi, which wouldn't exist in most American cities. The Tomi Jazz Club is special. Go and find out for yourself.

It's a very small Japanese own restaurant. Our group tried 6 different drinks and light dinner. Meal was little bit salty for us but drinks are fantastic! If I live near this restaurant, I would come at least once a week.
