Midtown West/Hells Kitchen Evening Out

Hello everyone! Looking for some recs on dinner with my Fiance in the midtown west or Hells Kitchen area. Price isn't much of a consideration, but I'd like to avoid spending more than 30 on an entree. I don't spend much time in this area so I dont know it all that well! Asian, Mexican, Italian recs are all good. Any cuisine, just something tasty that can likely take a day-of reservation.

After dinner we're meeting up with my sister and brother-in-law for some cocktails, so any suggestions for an interesting place with a decent cocktail list? Preferably a place where you can get a seat around 9pm. They're from out of town. Thank you in advance!

  1. UPDATE: I have made a reservation at Chez Josephine, so just looking for a solid place to get a nice cocktail tonight around 8:30. Anyone know any good places?

      Try Market Cafe, between 38th and 39th on 9th Avenue they make some pretty terrific cocktails

        My boyfriend took me to the Flatiron Lounge on our second date, and it remains one of my favorite places in the city (, and probably the best cocktails around. It's really in Chelsea, not Midtown, but it's not far! And it shouldn't be crowded at that time of night.
