Dinners & lunches near the Hilton on 6th betw. 53rd & 54th?

I will be in NY Mar 8-12 for a conference at the Hilton on Avenue of the Americas and would appreciate some chow worthy recommendations. Lunches will likely be by myself and I'm open to anything - dives included! Dinners are usually with a group of around 6 on expense accounts so non-dive places would be great - also walking distance (within 10 mins. of hotel) is best. Please advise if reservations shoul e made in advance or if same day reservations should suffice. Thanks very much!

P.S. I was last in NY in October and had a fantastic meal with great service at Artisanal!

  1. I had several breakfasts and lunches at Michael's several years ago while at the Hilton for a conference. I loved it. They're conveniently located by walking up Sixth Avenue and turning right onto 55th. Make your reservations now - I just checked Open Table for Friday, March 9. There are reservations still available. Saturday looks booked.

    Here is a link to their website:

      You can try Gordon Ramsay at the London Hotel - either the main dining room (formal dinner) or Maze which is much more causal. Both are fabulous.

    2. Burger Joint
      La Bonne Soupe

      1. Le Bernardin, 3 star Michelin seafood. Incredible, but it may already be too late for reservations.

        1. The Modern at MoMA, Estatorio Milos, Aquavit and Il Gattopardo for expense account dinners -- reservations recommended for all...

          1. Ruby Foos, Bar Americain, Porterhouse, Brasserie Ruhlmann, Del Frisco's (all walking distance and great for expense accounts)
