Good food, great location.

This was a recommendation by our hotel staff when we asked for places near Grand Central. The outside is super cute and I am pretty sure is in a couple of movie scenes. The inside is very clean, trendy and much much larger than I thought it would be. The food was quick and tasty. Enjoyable coffee... read more

A really unique location under the bridge facing Grand Central Station. Great decor, service and food. Pricey but worth it for a treat for breakfast given the special location and atmosphere.

I happened to be in town during Restaurant Week and took advantage of the lunch prix fixe. The food here never blows me away but I love the atmosphere and the location. This is not a "cheap eats" place.

What a place, and one of the best breakfasts I've ever had! It's quite a fast paced place - service is very quick and efficient, but still friendly. The food is fantastic - the pancakes were so good that I had them twice (but on separate occasions!). It's well placed for Grand Central as it's right across the street, it's... More

Most people send in reviews for this restaurant for breakfast. If, however, you are looking for a well-priced dinner in Midtown East, this is it. Great selections, great location. Two of us loved our short ribs and my husband's NY steak was one of the best he's had----his words. The wines are also well-priced and our selection was excellent and... More

Stopped for a drink at Pershing square, the staff were friendly and the interior was nice to. The atmosphere was good and I would definitely recommend it. Also it is located next to Grand central station and the Chrysler Building

We have visited NYC on numerous occasions over the years, more so of late. This is one of our family staples for revisits! Time and time again! While there is usually a queue (good sign!) it's moves exceptionally fast. Well organised and efficient and clean. Staff are always friendly. My all time favourite is always the bagel and lox...

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.
