We called 9:02 on the first day of the month but could only get 5:30 to 8:00 slot. Oh well. For our friends from Seattle it was a late lunch. But when your there, you are the King and Queen. We all agreed on the 7 course tasting menu and it was the best it's ever been. For example; the... More

`My boy Eric knows his sea animal food cookery. Expensive and wild and kind of French. If you are afraid of food, go to Arthur Treachers instead.

We were very excited to dine here recently for my birthday. It is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in the world, after all! We came for dinner and chose from the 4 course set menu - this turned out to be more than enough food for us and we thought was good value ($150 per person) for... More

There are many foodies like myself who travel the world seeking the ultimate experiences in places like Osteria Francescana, Can Roca, Noma, Central, Gaston etc.etc. In New York, “the” place for years has been Le Bernardin – more than just food, it embodies the best of ambience and atmosphere, service, food and wine. It is not one element that sets... More

This place cannot be surpassed..... In my opinion the best place in the US, and the best place in Manhattan, even though having places like 11 Madison and Per Se... We have had lunches at this place before going back to Europe for the last 15 years. It never ceases to surprise. The decorations has changed during the time, but... More

My wife took me here on my birthday and although I was familiar with its reputation, I was amazed at how perfect the whole evening was. The food was excellent, introduced and explained with great care by our "guardien" who guided us through our evening with charm and politeness. His recommendations for wine by the glass-we did not take the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
