So conveniently located near MOMA

Our foursome spent several hours on our feet at a MOMA exhibit. What a delight to wander out the 54th St entrance and find ourselves in front of Connolly's. The burgers were delicious, the salads numerous enough to allow a good choice and salmon that was fresh. It didn't hurt that the selection of... read more

My wife and I visited this bar late on Wednesday night after the Springsteen gig so we were still buzzing. The miserable barman soon brought us back down to Earth. He pulled his face when we walked in even though there were around 30 people still in the place. We had one drink and when I asked for a second,... More

As Irish bars go this isn't great. Poor service and undoubtedly the worst pint of beer I've ever tasted. There's plenty of choice in New York - I'd recommend anywhere else!

We walked through Time Square looking for somewhere that looked good to eat and I am very glad we stumbled upon this place. The staff was amazing!

Did a lot or research to find a place to eat near MoMA that would satisfy different appetites. Connolly's received good reviews from locals as well as tourists so we gave it a try. We were seated downstairs and it was a bit crowded as we were near the door. Although we were seated and greeted immediately, the service was... More

My family enjoyed an evening dining here. A varied menu and well cooked meals. Very good service from friendly and helpful staff. Nicely decorated for Christmas. We were staying close by at the Warwick Hotel.

There is something satisfying about playing the Pogues and Kirsty McColl on a juke box in NY on the week before Christmas and this pub allowed us that opportunity. Whilst most of the other bars were crushed we found a hearty welcome here. After initially just staying for a couple of beers we decided to have lunch, which was nothing... More

Great little pub with a welcoming atmosphere and superb food! My partner and I were in NYC in May 2015 and had an opportunity to have lunch at this very restaurant (W54th Street).

We dropped into this charming little bar for a appetizer and a drink. The spinach artichoke dip was great, the Guinness fresh! The bar area itself in the back was a little tight and was full of local business people.

We slipped in here while waiting to visit Rock Center. We were quickly seated at the bar and loved the atmosphere. The bartender wasn't initially very friendly, however he opened up the longer we stayed. A good place that seemed to be popular with the locals.

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.
