My husband and I had lunch here on our first day in NYC and it was a wonderful place to start our adventure. We were seated by a window with a view of St. Patrick's Cathedral, and couldn't stop staring out the window. I started with the butternut squash soup and he started with the crab and corn chowder. Both very good. I had the portabella and roasted red pepper sandwich and he then had the tuna sandwich. Great service. Definitely on the pricey side for lunch.

This restaurant is on the top floor of Saks Fifth Avenue. It has a fresh menu with great selections (plenty of guy food, not just salads) I had a great burger and the service was fast and friendly. The best part was the view. You can see all the way down Fifth Avenue. And the total cost for lunch was less than $50. A great break from watching your wife try on shoes

Classy brunch place on the 8th Floor of Saks. Their brunch special is affordable, you get a nice view of St. Patrick's. The best pottaoes I've tasted, and their crepe cake is divine.

Good stop if you don't want to drop while you shop at Saks. Good for a quick salad or sandwich--quite convenient.
