Great Food...Varied Menu

This little eatery on 9th Ave has very good food, decent prices, nice waters, and overall is a great little place to have lunch or dinner. You should always make a reservation because the place gets very crowded especially on a Saturday before 2pm. It's a great place for regular folks and the... read more

This is a restaurant plus food store where you can choose the kind of cuisine and accordingly sit in that section; e.g. fish, pizzas, fast food, etc. It is quite a wait before your food is served as there are so many customers, but well worth it.

I went here with some friends before going to a show at Radio City Music Hall. It's very close and convenient. We did have reservations because we weren't sure how crowded it would be. The service was quick. There's unique chips to munch on. We got a quesadilla as an appetizer which was delicious. I had the Adobe salad which... More

This restaurant is situated at the corner of 9th Avenue and 53rd Street. If you are looking for good food in clean surroundings without the queues found in restaurants around Time Square then make the effort to go to the Eatery. It is a 15 minute walk from time square.

6 of us managed to get a last minute table. We enjoyed the atmosphere (music a little loud since we were near a speaker) which was busy, but not rushed. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Friday evening, four people and we didn't have a table reservation. The only restaurant wich we wisited, that had a lot of vacant tables was Eatery. We understood quite soon why... The floor was very slippery throughout the whole restaurant. I suppose it was due to fat / food that has dropped off and then when not washed away properly,... More

The salmon benedict is always my go-to at this lively, tightly packed local restaurant. The spicy bloody marys are great, too. We always come here for brunch when in NYC.

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.
