Smithwicks, Fish & Chips

Had a nice French onion soup which was served amazingly fast. Don't know how they did it but had the French Onion soup within 5 minutes! Fish & Chips are nice and with Malt Vinegar even better! A few pints of Irish Smithwicks and the evening was saved after a cold working in NYC!

We found this little spot and walked in without a reservation. Had a delicious burger, fries and soda for two, less than 30$. The ambiance was great and the service was better!

Then sit outside under the ear damaging sounds of “music”, drink $5 drinks for a couple of hours (I think 4-7 every day) and watch the crowds and the cars run downstairs on 2nd Avenue. Across the street, the building where they managed to tumble a construction crane some years ago is now in the process of being completed. On... More

A lovely friendly Irish bar on 50th and 2nd Street 1 a great menu, friendly staff and a great selection of draught beefs and wines that are competitively priced. Brunch looks great and decent quality. Worth mentioning is the happy hour between 3pm and 8pm every day where loads of drinks are $5. They have nice staff, thanks for the... More

And very reasonable also. My mahi fish sandwich was the same price ($13) that I pay on the Florida gulf coast. And the BBQ sandwich was Southern worthy.

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.
