We were staying in mid town and looking for somewhere quick and easy for a meal. The concierge recommended Pescatore as local restaurant with great food and she was spot on. We got in without a booking (which was a pleasant change) and concerns about this went away when the food was delivered. The pasta dishes were exceptional and the... More

Were in NY for Christmas, wanted a good restaurant that was serving from their regular menu. Decided on Pescatore and we were so glad we did. This restaurant is small so I would make a reservation. Some people were eating at bar and bar tables too. The staff , even on such a busy day, were friendly and attentive. Now... More

The best part is the food. The manager, however, was loud and distracted the other waiters with training all night (in front of the patrons).

An early dinner for four on a Sunday night turned out to be our best meal over a long weekend visit to the city. Some of us took advantage of the Sunday night "parm" special; another chose among appetizers; another had the fish special. All the meals were excellent. Perfectly-sized entrees, fresh ingredients, very nice wine selection, perfect preparation. Waitstaff... More

We found this spot to be excellent on many levels. The prices are reasonable, unlike some of the other Italian restaurants nearby. The service was very good and friendly. The food was excellent. We both had seafood pasta dishes and thoroughly enjoyed them. And the atmosphere was appealing. Downstairs was a bit noisy and crowded. But upstairs, where we went,... More

Went on the recommendation of our hotel concierge and were very pleased. We sat in the upstairs dining room which is much quieter than the bar area downstairs, and enjoyed very nice salad, great pasta (a special red pepper linguine with seafood and black linguine with shrimp), and a nice bottle of very reasonably riced wine. Ambiance was excellent with... 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.
