Continental Mid-Town Restaurant Review: Stephen Starr's uptown branch of his original Continental is a draw for its affordable global tapas and inventive cocktails. Bigger than the Second Street version, the restaurant has a roof-deck bar and sensory overload décor to keep the place jumping day and night. Sit in a car seat booth or a hanging basket on the mezzanine level and nibble calamari salad, Korean pork tacos or a menu "classic" such as Thai-style chicken over rice noodles and romaine. At lunch, try the Green Submarine (a vegetarian hoagie) or chicken curry "naan-wich" with mango curry dressing on grilled Indian-style bread. Weekends are another story: Continental Mid-Town becomes the place to be for the young and the restless who sport this season's couture.
