Your fave restaurant near Waldorf?

We are taking out a couple who's staying there. We want something closeby for their convenience, and it can be swanky. As for our taste, we love 11 Madison Park, for example. Thanks.

    Alto and Aquavit come to mind as quite close by.

      Sparks Steak House or Smith and Wollensky, if they like steak, are both within walking distance.

      You also could go to the Ocean Grill at Rockefeller Center and watch the skaters, the atmosphere is very festive.

        I believe you mean the Sea Grill at Rock Center. Since the departure of Chef Ed Brown, I've not heard anything about his replacement, so I'd hesitate to go there.

        Right in the Waldorf, there's Peacock Alley. Sure to be swanky though I have no idea how good the food is.

      I'd recommend Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Sit a the bar. It's pretty awesome.
