Description: HK is the ultimate experience. Located at the corner of 39th Street and 9th Avenue, it has transformed the local area of Hell's Kitchen from a place of culinary oblivion to a hot spot demanding everyone's attention. The ultra modern minimalist restaurant boasts French Asian cuisine with a unique Mediterranean flair that appeals to anyone's palate. An elegant streamlined decor of brilliant silver mirrors and glass partitions serves merely as the white plate on which the opulent cuisine is laid before you with colors and flavors that will paint your dining experience in hues you will not find elsewhere in Manhattan.

I went on Sunday of labor day weekend with two of my girlfriends, we only had to wait about 5 minutes, than got seated outside as requested. This place was SO MUCH FUN, the unlimited Bellini's and mimosas didn't stop flowing for the 3 and a half hours we were there. The drag queens were so entertaining, and the food... More

Went to hk (in Hell's Kitchen) at the recommendation of the hotel concierge and am glad this became my dinner destination. I ordered salmon farfalle w/a dill & caper cream sauce that was to die for and a side of sautéed kale. My waiter gladly brought some vinegar to season the kale. Prices were extremely reasonable. If I return to... More

This was some of the best food we had while we were in NYC. We went there two times both for lunch or a little later. We received good service and the quality of the food was very good. Within walking distance from the Holiday Inn Express Times Square.

We recently planned a weekend trip to NYC. I read reviews and ask my NY friends for recommendations for Sunday Brunch. I was very excited and looking forward to our experience on Sunday at HK. We arrived a little early, just before Noon, to avoid having to wait. It wasn't too busy at that time and they sat us right... More

Get the bottomless champagne or minosa coupled with the lobster benedict and you're set. Ambience is hip, if not super noisy, but a stint at the bar while we waited for a table followed by an excellent brunch with good service is the way to go. Recommended!

We had our own room to ourselves and our own personal waiter it was amazing!! Saturday and Sunday is unlimited drinks with an entree! If you are looking for a "boozy" brunch spot then... More

We decided to not go to the flea market in Brooklyn as it was cold and windy so we went to plan B and decided to go to brunch. We were staying on 36th St so we were just a few blocks away and walked to HK. We had been advised it was cash only and just as we arrived... More

I'd been here a few years ago during prime brunch time and thought why not try it out on a slow Sunday morning (10am) before the rush? Came with my boyfriend after walking through the flea market right outside. We were promptly seated at our table of choice, a few other diners already seated. Our waiter was pleasant, and we... More

My girlfriend and I went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We were there relatively early, around 10 am, and there were only a few other tables seated. I had the blue cheese hollandaise eggs benedict. Well, there was maybe 2-3 small pieces of blue cheese on the plate and NO hollandaise sauce. Also, the breakfast potatoes were cold. $16... More
