We were with a big group of people and everyone enjoyed their meal. It really was an awesome place. If your a NYC foodie this place should be... More

3rd time we've eaten at Unc Nicks when we've gone to NYC and it's been great each time. Wonderful apps, cold beer, good service! You won't go wrong with a Greek salad or the Greek appetizer plate! Warm pita bread!

Very busy but we were seated fairly quickly. Staff were all so hard working and busy. Great team organisation, they are clearly very good at working to capacity. Our waiter was very helpful and thankfully stopped us mid order as we were not aware of the portion sizes. Such great value for money, to be well fed. The dishes were... More

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.
