Friends the very popular American sitcom about a group of friends in Manhattan, New York City. It was originally broadcast from 1994 to 2004 in a total of 236 episodes. The show has been broadcast in more than 100 countries and still continues to attract good ratings for its episodes in syndication. The final episode of the show was watched by an estimated US audience of 51.1 million. During the show's 10 year run, it won 7 Emmy's (including one for Outstanding Comedy Series), a Golden Globe, 2 SAG Awards, and 56 other various awards with 152 nominations.

The corner of Bedford Street and Grove Street in the West Village is the site of the fictional home of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. show characters. At some point in the show every character has lived in one of the 2 apartments in the show.
The ground floor now houses the very popular, cosy (small and a bit close together) Little Owl restaurant which specialises in bold flavoured Mediterranean cuisine and, apparently, is a hot spot for romantic dining, known somewhat ungallantly as 'clinching the deal'. Due to its compactness and popularity reservations are the order of the day.
