Contemporary Mexican | Midtown East, Manhattan

First time here after reading it was recommended by the Washington Post restaurant critic, Tom Sietsema. We had reservations at 1145 and it quickly filled up with a lunch crowd. We had the three course Prix Fixe for $38 and it was just enough delicious food. First course was a Duck Tamal and a cup of Tortilla Soup, perfect for a cold rainy day. Next came the Fish Tacos and a Chicken dish you could wrap in butter lettuce leaves. Dessert was an ice cream sandwich and a Citrus Flan, both were creamy and just the right amount of sweet! Highly recommended for the creative cuisine, every bite was just perfect! More

Mediterranean | Meatpacking District, Manhattan

I've eaten at the 5th Avenue location numerous times but have never been to the Meatpacking location. I had a group of out of town guests who wanted to walk the High Line and the location was perfect. Service was wonderful, our pear sangria hit the spot and everyone enjoyed their food. We had a fantastic time. I will definitely visit again when in the area. More

Japanese | Midtown West, Manhattan

This is truly one of the best Japanese restaurants in NYC. People often focus on sushi with Japanese food. Yakatori is easily one of the best treasures from Japan. Tori Shin is objectively the best in NYC. The select counter adds an interesting additional element to the meal. High-end fish, fried foods, and most importantly, King Crab. The special part about the crab was the fact that it was never frozen and not cooked before arriving at the restaurant - this is unheard of. It was lightly grilled and served medium rare. The best crab I've ever had. Well done boys! 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.
