We ate here one night during our trip to New York. I had ribeye steak it was delicious, it was cooked perfectly and fell apart in my mouth. There was a very generous amount of fries and vegetables. All of us were really pleased with our food and was very reasonably priced.

We had spotted Brendans opposite when we stayed at Hotel Metro over New Year. When we returned to New York in Mid January we decided to pop in foe Sunday Brunch. We chose a nourishing steak and eggs which is offered with either a Mimosa or Bloody Mary, the Brunch menu is $18, good value in Central Manhatten. However the... More

We strolled past this place, and have done many times but one day it caught our eye. it's not flash, but the styling of this place is on point and perfect. the tiles, the bar, the lighting, the fireplace, the plates have a subtle but gorgeous pattern and all other things e.g platters, bowls all match - the food is...

The is a really comfortable bar/restaurant to visit. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food and drinks are very good and not too expensive for NYC prices. This bar is a favourite of my husbands as it shows live English football! Would certainly recommend a visit here.

Visited due to recommendation from Hilton Garden Inn Staff, as we were staying there in late December. My family of 4 split 2 steak dinners, added a couple of salads and the bill was only $126.00. Which was good from my NYC research. We all loved the succulent steaks that were cooked to perfection. Bryce really took care of us.... More

This place is like a home away form home. A great place for a gin & tonic, or a meal. You can eat at a table towards the back, or in the bar area. The staff are friendly, and this bar has the best fish and chips anywhere. If you stay in The Gregory Hotel, you can grab a meal... More

Had dinner here on two occasions on a trip to New York over the Christmas period and was very impressed with everything. The building itself is very beautiful with high ceilings and a huge open fire and fireplace. The food was excellent with good large portions and high quality. We had the fish and chips, the shepherds pie and turkey... 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.
