A traditional Japanese restaurant in Midtown that I have been coming to for decades. Comprehensive menu, including a great luncheon card. One of the few restaurants in New York with a tempura bar, with each individual selection lovingly cooked to order. House made soba is some of the best in the city. Long serving and professional management and staff unobtrusively give you a sense you're in a quiet corner in Japan. More

Have been going to Morton's since the first one opened. (Yes, I'm that old) In '79 they were presenting rolling carts of sample beef cuts wrapped in cellophane. In the original location it worked because of the lighting and high ceilings. Today not so much. The spinach salad is the best anywhere. The beef is always superb. The sauteed spinach with button mushrooms can be a meal on my Lenten Fridays. More

I've passed by this restaurant a million times and never noticed it. The exterior is nondescript and easy to miss. The interior, however, is very nice and welcoming. The acoustics are fantastic too. Even though the restaurant was packed while we were there, it was possible to have a private conversation without screaming or struggling to hear each other. Naya's food was delicious and nicely presented. We ordered a whole bunch of appetizers and shared, which worked out great since we were able to sample many dishes. The servers were friendly and professional, plus the prices were reasonable. The server followed instructions regarding our friend's birthday surprise, giving the check to me, etc. It's clear that Naya is Midtown East's best-kept secret. I will definitely be going back. More

For the main, the arctic char, pork shoulder, and roasted chicken were all hits. We only got 2 desserts - chocolate and blood orange - but love them both. The plates are small, so a 3-course meal is not filling at all. But the flavors are so complex, it's a very satisfying meal. Also, try the non-alcoholic cocktails!

Discover Midtown East

If you’re looking for a perfect neighborhood for a power lunch, look no further. As a hub of world media, Midtown East is one of the most commercial areas of NYC, and you can find a meal worthy of a mogul. Scattered between Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building are steakhouses surrounded with Sinatra lore, classic cocktail bars, and other timeless institutions. On the casual side, some of the city’s best food trucks and Halal carts prowl the streets, slinging deliciously affordable options to tourists and workers each day.
