Need restaurants near the Javits Center

I know, super random area. But I need suggestions of delicious places near the Javits Center, which i think is north of the meatpacking?

Any and all suggestions are welcome!

  1. It's not exactly a place for dining...walking/cabbing required. Is that ok?

      it's for a fter a client event which is AT the Javits.... so a short walk would be okay. We want somewhere nice. Any ideas? Thanks.

    2. Being a bit more specific would be helpful, as well. What cuisines are you interested in? What day/tnight of the week is this for? Do you have a budget? Thanks.

        All we care about is that it's nice (upscale) and good. Sorry, I live in LA : ) It's for a client event. Thank you!

          No worries :)
          Agree with the other mentions of Esca, also:
          44 & X
          Keen's Chophouse (10/15 min walk)

      2. There is really very little in the immediate area--Javits is famous for being in the middle of nowhere. However Esca is on 43rd and 9th and is very good IMHO. About a ten min walk...

        1. There really isn't much in this area. Uncle Jack's Steakhouse is also about a 10 minute walk - but gets terrible reviews. Esca is very very good but is all sea food - so that may be a problem.

          I would look into a quick cab ride to Keens or Old Homestead, two of the better and older steakhouses in the city , both within 10 minutes of Javits by cab.

          Also make sure your restaurant is not attached to strip clubs in this area, Jonathon's or Robert's are two.

            Uncle Jack's is good, Keene's is better,,, and Esca is walkable from Javitz. Meat Packing is too far to walk ,, Esca is about 5 blocks away I think

          2. Cookshop is within (semi-long) walking distance. I usually go there after the NY Auto Show.
