WONDERFUL PRODUCTS IN BRYANT PARK

We enjoyed the kiosk in Bryant Park as well as the full service restaurant across the street on West 40th. Both have delicious food and it just depends on whether you want to dine indoors or experience eating in the park and observing all of the activity. The pastries and breads are excellent as... read more

I try to find the nice in places. I really do. But this one was hard. There was like 15 people in the place and it took 15 minutes for our "sandwiches" to be made. That's because there was one guy making sandwiches. They were listed as sandwiches but the one worker was confused as to how we ordered sandwiches... More

LPQ is in my book the best breakfast place you can find in NYC. This time however, they managed to mess upp the eggs twice. Eggs where the white is still not solid are indeed soft boiled, but I doubt that a large part of the population want them that way. After sending them back the next pair of eggs... More

Wonderful fresh food with an irresistible bakery included. We had lunch here 2 of our 3 days in NYC. Between the 5 of us we tried several of the menu items. All were delicious.

We enjoyed getting our morning coffee and trying a different danish or sweet baked item daily and then walking over to sit and enjoy the morning in Bryant Park. The walk in bakery/restaurant is right across the street from Bryant Park plus they also operate a kiosk in Bryant Park with the same yummy pastries. Also lunch items.

Like the different bread options for breakfast, coffee ok, service bad. Slow to take orders, messy, waiters not committed to give a good service. Nice location.

I had previously visited this chain in another part of New York City and was excited to bring my family there, but this place was a disappointment. While the food I ordered was great - a green juice, a muffin, and my son's oatmeal - my wife's meal arrived cooked inproperly. The egg was cooked insufficiently. Once she unpealed it,... More

We liked this Le Pain Quotidien, we liked sitting in the park just watching people, the basic but organic selection of the menu and the quick service. It is a tiny small place in the park, you can't sit inside, ideal for a breakfast in Bryant park.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
