When I arrived for lunch there was a notice on the door that Benjamin's has closed and was out of business due to some long time disagreements with the city. Benjamin's will be sorely missed.

Meal was really good. Mussels in wine very lemony and fresh tasting. Salmon was z nice piece and chicken parm over homemade pasta. Server was so pleasant The place looks like a "joint"but chef overrides that.

Benjamin is a dependable choice. The food is good and the prices reasonable. We were disappointed with their gazpacho but my soft shelled crabs were quite good.

Nice American food with a classic vibe in Murray Hill/Kips Bay. Service was excellent, along with a good drink selection! If you're in the area for a relaxing, comforting evening, you've found the place!
