Contemporary American | Meatpacking District, Manhattan

We had a very special anniversary. The food was perfect, our porter house was cooked exactly how we liked it. The truffle mash and mushrooms melted in your mouth. I think what made the event so special was the service, everyone who waited on us went out if there way to make our night special, especially our waiter, “the beast” William He gave us a personal touch, made us laugh, gave great recommendations for food and drink, felt like we wanted to hang with him another night or come back to be served by him. Thanks for a great night. More

Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe
Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe
(812)
$$$$
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

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.
