If brunch isn't your thing, it should be while you're in NYC, and HK is a place like none other. Right in the hear of Hell's Kitchen this place is where the party is without going over the top. You can dress casual, enjoy bottomless drinks, and you are certain to be entertained--although I think this is only on the... More

Not a restaurant I've expected in this area but it is a nice one. Relaxed, smooth music, lovely sercvice and great drinks. Enjoyed it a lot and would strongly recommend it to someone who wants to take a litte more time for his lunch and dinner.

This place is a funky little place in Hells Kitchen. Very noisy with loud music. Great service and the best hamburger I have ever had. Do yourself favor and order their " Brunch Burger". Served on a toasted English muffin, with a very tender burger, bacon, perfectly cooked to order egg, and bonus macaroni and cheese. A heart busting piece... More

We just stopped by for a quiet drink because the sidewalk tables and the open air restaurant looked inviting. Drinks and service were fine, and the Sunday afternoon flea market on the same street made for some entertaining people watching.

The big draw at HK is their bottomless brunch, which is quite literally bottomless. I've been here several times where my friends and I finished our meals but didn't want to leave yet but there was a line out the door for a table so the waitress said we can go to the bar to continue drinking. How great!! The... More

Great place, great location. The burgers were delicious, exceptional! My Mojito was the best I ever had! Was disappointed with my salad nicoise with fresh tuna as it was overdone, small and dry, Gordon definitely was not in the kitchen that day! Otherwise I would have rated it Excellent.

Four of us enjoyed this restaurant that was very near our hotel. I had a really good Mediterranean salad, my friends had lobster ravioli, mushroom risotto, and some beef rib thing (I don't do meat so I'm not sure what it was). The food was good, the service was a little slow but we weren't in any hurry so that... More

Three of us enjoyed a delightful dinner here before the theater. My niece had the herbed roast chicken dinner which she demolished and said was cooked perfectly. Her companion's basil lasagna looked delicious and he thought it was perfectly cooked. My wild mushroom ravioli contained a delightful mixture of two or three different mushrooms encased in perfectly cooked pasta. The... More

HK is the ultimate experience. Located at the corner of 39th Street and 9th Avenue, it has transformed the local area of Hell's Kitchen from a place of culinary oblivion to a hot spot demanding everyone's attention. The ultra modern minimalist restaurant boasts French Asian cuisine with a unique Mediterranean flair that appeals to anyone's palate. An elegant streamlined decor of brilliant silver mirrors and glass partitions serves merely as the white plate on which the opulent cuisine is laid before you with colors and flavors that will paint your dining experience in hues you will not find elsewhere in Manhattan.

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.
