Places to Eat In New York

From 57th Street to Madison Square Garden lunch in New York City is a fool’s paradise. Lunch time is the perfect time to check out some of the city’s finest restaurants because they feature prix-fixe deals that cost 30% less than dinners. Shift gears from your workday and plan for a repast at the seductively elegant Le Bernardin, take a trip to a soulful sanctuary named Hangawi in Little Korea on 32nd St., or stroll to a Paris bistro at Benoit.

You don’t have to plan very far ahead for a quick New England getaway at the Oyster Barcounter, one of the city’s most famous landmarks. Not much time to eat, hit one of the better grab and go hubs such as Shake Shack at Madison Square Park or Grand Central Terminal’s Dining Concourse or across the street Cipriani’s offers a taste of enchanting Venice at lunchtime.

Eight million people from every country on Earth live in New York, so the range of culinary experiences is bewildering. The fine-dining scene changes amazingly fast, with new trends and movements springing up all the time.

New York chefs are always innovating. The artisanal and locavore (local food) movement is all the rage the world over. Richard Farnabe, the executive chef at the Soho Grand, has planted an organic garden on the 17-storey hotel, growing herbs, vegetables, micro greens and more than 27 varieties of heirloom tomatoes.

Whatever the trends, there are always the classics, and New York does them like no other. Don’t miss the oysters at Grand Central Oyster Bar in the basement of the famous train terminal, going strong since 1913; or a Porterhouse steak at the venerable Brooklyn institution Peter Luger (established 1887).

You can spend pretty much every minute of every day chasing down something new to eat in NYC. Luckily for you and your taste buds, New York is constantly welcoming new restaurants to its food scene, with buzzy upstarts joining the impeccable landmarks that never disappoint. Whether you’re craving an artful yet affordable tasting menu, a soul-satisfying platter of the city’s best BBQ or world-class Japanese food, there’s an NYC restaurant that will satisfy.
