We stopped in for a drink to see the trendy restaurant on 45th. It was next to our hotel, so it was convenient. The restaurant is on the lower level, so you have about 20 steps down, but there is an elevator. The design is nice, and there is a garden in the back. The famous chef is hoping to... More

The food here was truly wonderful! Salads were crispy and tasty. Two individuals in our party had a vegetarian entree--the cauliflower steak which was delicious. I had a wonderful faro risotto with parsley pesto that I'm still dreaming about. The raspberry beignets with vanilla bean sauce were to die for! Unfortunately, the service did not match the wonderful food. Our... More

Wonderful Gossip Girl inspired birthday dinner here with my daughter, six of her besties and some moms. Beautiful decor and attentive, friendly wait staff make the experience feel very special. Great place for an occasion. Our girls(and moms) loved the Gnochi Mac n Cheese!!!!! Would suggest more such kid and teen friendly items on the dinner menu as lunch menu... More

The menu here is very inventive and different than places we've been to. The restaurant is downstairs in a hotel and the decor is nice, you're greeted by a nice wine display case (love the large format Petrus) and small comfortable waiting area. Delicious speciality cocktails (but $17 each) including one with vodka, watermelon ice cubes, mint and lime juice.... More

I always wanted to try this place and I finally did on Valentines Day. The food was excellent. Everything we tried was delicious. The thick cut veal bacon is incredible. I'm still craving it days later. The Salmon entree was wonderful. Best Salmon I've ever had. The ghost margarita is amazing as well. Amazing ambiance, excellent service, great drinks. All... More

Butter is on W 45th St, easy walking distance from hotels and theaters. I was first attracted to Butter because of its chef-owner Alex Guarnaschelli. The food draws me back.

My wife and I were very excited to have dinner at Butter this past Sunday but unfortunately we didn't have the best experience. We had a later reservation (8pm) and made sure we arrived early and we were promptly seated which was good. We ordered a bottle of the 2004 Heitz Trailside Cabernet Sauvignon but were presented with a bottle... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
