Favorite local restaurants/57 & Lex

My wife and I just moved to 57th & Lex. What are some of your favorite local restaurants?

We have a 4 month old baby girl, so nothing too fancy! Thanks.

  1. See here for lunch spots,
    Except Astra, all are good for dinner as well.

    1. David Burke at Bloomingdales, Cafe Fondutta, (although it's not a restaurant) Buttercup Bakeshop, Taksim

      1. Hey - we have a 4 month old baby boy and live on 57th and 2nd. Welcome to the neighborhood! Some good local places are Sip Sak and Taksim for turkish, grand sichuan eastern for spicy chinese, sushi seki for very good sushi, Lenny's for pretty good sandwiches - lots of variety, Bar Vetro for decent italian, Yuva for good upscale Indian, and Pongal for more casual Indian.
