Near W - The Tuscany
I'm heading to NY for business, and they're putting me up at the W Tuscany (39th between Lex and Park). I guess it's close to where I'll be working. Any good spots near there? Fine dining places are great, but I'm also really interested in anywhere nearby where I could a) run in for a quick dinner, b) eat alone, c) get take-out from, d) eat late, or e) get delivery to the hotel. I'm going to be working pretty crazy hours, so I probably won't have time for a lot of 2-hour meals. I just want places where you'd eat if you were staying there and wanted to get a quick weeknight dinner.
I like all kinds of food, and I don't really care about price.
The first place that immediately comes to mind is Sarge's Deli, quite close to your hotel, on 3rd Av., b/t 36th & 37th Sts. Open 24/7 and they deliver. Thus, it fits categories a,b,c,d, and e. :-))
Two moderately-priced Italian restaurants in that vicinity:
Wu Liang Ye, on Lex., b/t 39th & 40th - Menu and info on menupages.com
Byblos, on 39th, just east of 3rd - See menupages.com
Ali Baba, on 34th, b/t 2nd & 3rd - See menupages.com
Carl's Cheesesteaks, on 3rd, b/t 34th & 35th - Mainly take-out - http://www.carlsteaks.com
In case you have the opportunity for some fine dining, I highly recommend L'Impero, on Tudor City Pl., b/t 42nd & 43rd Sts. Superb contemporary Italian cuisine. Fine wine list. Excellent service, Lovely atmospherics.
