Need Recommendation in Murray Hill Area...

Howdy, i need a new restaurant to try in the Murry Hill area tonight - i will be going with my boyfriend. Just something casual for a Tuesday!

I always seem to goto Penelopy's and Josies... so am trying to get out there and try some of the other fantastic restaurants in the hood!

All cuisines are good, i love everything!

  1. Bar Milano? I hear it's really making a splash in the 'hood.

      It is a good addition to the nabe. Unfortunately, it's really hard to get reservations on short notice right now. If you walk in, it takes about 40 minutes to be seated.

    2. Ali Baba, Ethos. Bar Milano is worth a try, but I'm not sure I'd call it casual, at least not on the level of Penelope and Josie's.

      1. Waterfront Ale House for burgers, barbeque and beer on 30th and 2nd.

        Ethos on 34th and 3rd for greek, and great grilled fish.

          Forgot about Waterfront--I second that rec.

        2. Tiffin Wallah-yummy Indian vegetarian. I like their savory rice pancakes.

          1. I think I'm a bit late, but for future reference, in addition to the suggestions so far (all genuinely good, I'm not just being nice), I'd add Turkish Kitchen, Jaiya (Thai), Chennai Garden (south Indian), Rare (burgers), and Shake Shack in Madison Square Park.
