Grand Central Area
I want to say that I'm a foodie and a born and raised NYer. However I'm really a west side girl.
I am now going to be working in the immediate vacinity of grand central station. My job requires me to know the area VERY well and to make reccomendations of where to eat, go, do etc etc.
Any and all options would be greatly appreciated. Brunch, chinese, delis, etc etc etc etc
thanks in advance!
Grand Central TERMINAL (not, station - that's the subway) is full of great restaurants including Metrazur from Charlie Palmer, the famous Oyster Bar and Michael Jordan's Steakhouse - which is owned by the same group that owns Striphouse and basically has the same menu.
Also, downstairs at Grand Central in the Dining Concourse, there's so many great to go places. There's Two Boots, Brother Jimmy's, Manhattan Chili, Dishes, Little Pie Co., Chirpin Chicken, Ciao Bella, Mendy's and Junior's. The best part is that you can get there underground if it's raining from so many different passages.
The places downstairs in the "terminal" are definately NOT what i had in mind.
LeahBaila- I'm looking in a 10 block radius I suppose.
Some places I already know about and enjoy in that area are Pampano, Benjamin's, Pera. Dos Caminos 3rd ave has a suprisingly delicious brunch FYI. (even if it is brguest)
I'm looking for great chinese, italian, deli, etc. I need to have these in my arsinal of restaurants, and I guess I've just never spent enough time on the east side!
My go-to delis for salads are Blake & Todd (also has good pasta/pizzas) and Devon & Blakely. There is also a 'wichcraft at 47th & Lex.
