Contemporary Mexican | Midtown East, Manhattan

Just be aware that it is a pricey restaurant for entrees. The guacamole appetizer is $21.00 which I think is a lot! The tacos were very interesting besides being delicious. Wine was very good and our server was outstanding. Overall it was a very nice experience. More

Great spot for date night! Parking is great, food is amazing, staff go above and beyond to ensure that you are happy, and the drinks are amazing also. We visited on a very overcast day, but still wanted to experience the rooftop and the staff ensured that we did just that. As soon as we were ready to move inside we transitioned smoothly to a table inside where we still had a nice view of the city. More

Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe
Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe

$$$$
American | Rockefeller Center Midtown, Manhattan

I chose Morrell for its proximity to the Laura Pels theater and because I was looking for somewhere I thought would be reasonably fast and where we could try and share several small plates. Morrell lived up to all those expectations. Luckily, it was a nice evening so we were able to eat outside, which was very pleasant since the restaurant is in the middle of Rockefeller Center and not on a main street. We had a very nice, light meal and excellent wine. The dessert was a little slow to come out - we had to ask for it - otherwise the service was attentive. Not cheap, but I would go back, particularly on a nice evening. More

Turkish | Midtown West, Manhattan

We ate pre theatre out on the delightful back patio. We were offered a tasting of Turkish wines to help us choose. Our food was delicious, deeply flavorful and perfectly cooked (chicken chops and salmon wrapped in vine leaves). The staff was attentive and helpful. In a city of endless dining choices, we’ll return to Turkuaz. More

The food was wonderful, as always, but the main dining room was very noisy making conversation difficult. Next time I will specify the area with the booths which was much quieter. More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
