Nice small place near Times Square

Looking for a place before a meeting in 42nd Street, Jacks was right next to the Icon garage where I parked. I decided to give it a try particularly since i could get a full meal BEFORE 5pm--definitely a bonus. I had their Black bean and Chorizo soup and their Chicken pot pie. Both were... read more

We went to Jack's as part of a girls night before a show. Jack's is just off of Times Square, so out of the crazy and touristy areas. We had solid food, good service, but nothing that really stood out. There are plenty of other options in NYC that I would choose first. But, if I was catching a show... More

There really isn't much space between the tables but this is still an excellent place for lunch. I had the Indian Mahal chicken salad, served in a crispy popadom cup and it was delicious. Service was quick and very friendly. Highly recommended.

With the sudden closing of my go to lunch place in Times Sq. area -- Dukc's -- I quickly had to find a new venue for a business lunch. Jack's was recommended by a co-worker and it was better than just fine. A little upscale, with well presented and slightly creative familiar sandwiches and meals. Attentive service. Comfotable booth. Beware,... More

We were able to walk right into the restaurant without a reservation. The Brunch menu posted outside looked reasonable and your first glass of champagne was free. We ordered the Eggs Benedict, French Toast and Bagel and Lox. Eggs Benedict was OK, not very much Hollandaise sauce, but eggs cooked perfectly. Potatoes that came with it were awesome. French Toast,... More

Stepped in off a hectic street into a warm and welcoming place. Immediate attention from Lar at front -of-house and despite not having reservations, we were ushered to a booth without any fuss. He excels at assessing a customer's needs and promptly seats customers according to what best is available. Excellent waiting staff, friendly, attentive and mindful of their customers.... More

My friend had the pork. We only managed the entree - had planned dessert but they served bread & olive oil to start while we waited. I had cod with sweet potato,corn & bacon in cream sauce. Yum yum! Cost $50 for two mains & 2 glasses of wine. Good portions & well cooked.

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.
