Located in the loft-like industrial space fomerly inhabited by Montparnasse, Raffi's on 5th specializes in Mediterranean, Spanish, Italian French and Middle Eastern cuisine. On the menu: steaks, chops, pasta and fresh fish. Standouts include a variety of vegetarian dishes as well as the lamb dishes. Exposed brick walls and 40-foot ceilings create a sophisticated atmosphere. Decor includes Middle Eastern rugs and paintings. While this is owner Raffi Demerdjian's first venture, his family has been in the restaurant business for 40 years (Demerdjian's father, Leon, owned Sayat Nova).
