Description: Located on the ground floor of The Westin New York Grand Central, THE LCL: Bar & Kitchen offers creative cocktails and a seasonal menu in a contemporary setting inspired by nature. Designed by STEPHANIEGOTO, the 2,600 sq. Ft. Space features an alluring curtain wall composed of vertical natural walnut planks, a palette of soft colored reflective glass and an illuminated "forest wall" which transitions from day to night. The LCL features an expansive collection of small-batch spirits, regionally brewed craft beers, global wine offerings and a rotating selection of Gerber Group's classic and modern cocktails that highlight market fresh ingredients and cold pressed juices. The kicked up comfort food menu is available from sunrise to well after sunset, and features favorites such as Deviled Organic Eggs, LCL LaFrieda Burger and Kale Salad. THE LCL also serves Starbucks Coffee, Organic Avenue juices and fresh grab-and-go options in the morning for guests on the move.

This review is for the three young men who work in this restaurant for breakfast inside Westin Grand Central. Javier, Eric and Ray all smile and display warmth every morning as you choose your hot beverage, juice, pastry and cold dish from the excellent fresh choices for a continental breakfast. This review is a special thank you for three hard working young men.

I've been staying in New York for work and have been coming back to the restaurant because the food and service is so good. The whole staff is extremely friendly, accommodating, and service oriented. The crew behind the bar, especially Javier and ray were particularly awesome. Definitely recommend swinging by for the cheeseburger

The concept is very good, the location is outstanding, the selection is above average, the quality is well above average, the quantity served is above average--this is for food and drinks...price wise it is competitive for like locations and hotels and probably a tad on the higher side. What needs IMPROVEMENT is the inconsistent service. Had it not been for the service being up and down I would have given it a higher score. Fix the service--specifically how quickly you get to the clients, how quickly you follow up with the order, please be courteous, do communicate if order is going to be delayed, and finally--shift change overs should have NO impact on service. I have had outstanding service and then no service--meh? Love the organic drink cooler.

Simple food (grilled cheese and chicken pot pie) imaginatively created. Paired with excellent refreshing cocktails. Great music and nice ambience.

Had drinks and appetizers here several time and really like this updated loung in the Helmsley. Such an improvement over the old dreary bar. Cocktails were good, lots of staff, but it does get crowded after 5! Appetizers are very good. The deviled eggs and humus platter were good and more than enough for three of us!
