Great Place to Stop In Near The Plaza!

After much weary walking on the far side of lunch time, we popped into Europa and found an excellent place for lunch. Cozy, bustling, wide variety on menu, plenty of windows - what you hope to find in NYC to watch the world go by! Excellent pasta specials. Then it was on to Central Park...

We had a quick breakfast in here one morning, lots of options, fruits, yoghurts, eggs and pancakes. I asked for an egg white omelette which they were happy to oblige and make. The place is clean and tidy, lots of seating and good lighting. Coffee wasn't bad either and the staff were friendly

This place is an average fast food place. It was ok but nothing tasted unique to the place. At least what I tried. It was a forgettable experience.

Went in here for lunch... It could be that they have good food but what I ordered wasn't ... Some Mediterranean bowl... probably the worst lunch I have ever tried....

We ordered the quinoa and grilled chicken stir fry. It was prepared right in front of us. The stir fry included cherry tomatoes, onions spinach, sesame and sunflower seeds. Really tastey and very economical.

We enjoyed a great salad here and they offer a good variety of food, fruits and salads. Eating is cafeteria style and prices are quite reasonable.

As this was relatively close to our hotel (which had no restaurant of it's own), we found it a great place to go for breakfast. The choices there are great as is the actual food. The prices were great too. The staff were good. I'd highly recommend this as a place to go for a quick bite at a reasonable... More

Went there for a quick dinner with my wife and 11-year old daughter. We only had 30 minutes so this cafeteria-style restaurant was perfect for a quick bite in a great location. Pastas, salads, sandwiches, and desserts. The food was good - very average for this type of restaurant -- but the young man preparing the pasta was very entertaining.... More

A most appropriate place for a quick meal when in a rush from one site to other in busy NYC. Portions are large and the food is typical of a high-end european bistro. Service is nice and professional.

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.
