64 West 39th Street
A cool and laid-back American restaurant hidden away inside The Refinery Hotel. Overlooked by Chef Haskell who brings with him a plentitude of experience and unique skill. The interior design is reminiscent of a cooler old-school Manhattan with booth style diner seating and golden antique mirrors and other furniture that evoke the 1900s all the way up to 2000s. Classy, eloquent and old school are all words that spring to mind upon entering this definite must-go-to restaurant.
2- Casa Nonna
310 38th Street
The Casa Nonna, ‘Grandmother’s House’ in Italian, is a roomy Italian restaurant that is well presented and fashionable in its execution. An elegant twist between Roman and Tuscan culinary taste, the menu will be sure to bring you to the Italian continent within the first bite. Their selection of cured meats as well as Antipasti reflect the true Italian touch brought by the chef Atilio Ramos.
3- Chef Yu
520 8th Avenue
One of the few hidden gems of the Garment District, Chef Yu will soon show itself to be your favorite Chinese restaurant in midtown! The menu is overlooked by Chef Yu himself and you’d think that in such an incredible midtown location the prices would be standard rate, but you’d be surprised to find most lunch menus below 8$ and at that rate and high quality service, the food is practically a steal! The Beef Tendon and Marinated Beef with Pepper Sauce are the most renown plates of this Chinese restaurant, and are also our favorite plates!
4- Izakaya Mew
53 West 35th Street
Its beautifully designed interior, ambient lighting and dimly lit walls, simple wooden tables beset an unforgettable atmosphere whether the place is packed or half full.
