      Giorgios of Grammercy or Olana would be great

        Good recommendations for the neighborhood so far. For atmosphere I love Cosette.

          Highly recommend Resto or maybe Artisinal.

          Resto's atmosphere is very farm-to-table style, sort of bare bones but cozy. Artisinal has a French bistro atmosphere and is louder and typically more crowded.

            Yeah, smoke beat me to it but I'm always going to recommend Artisanal for the MH area.

              It's Murray Hill!!
              There are quite a few threads posted on the hill of Murray, take a look.
              We tend to stay with the less fancy places in Murray Hill but we just tried Rossini's (fancy old style Italian) for the first time and loved it.
              Fagiolini's and Sam's place also have good Italian and are less expensive/fancy.
              El Rio Grande Mexican
              Hane Sushi
              Duke's BBQ, Burgers, Sports bar atmosphere
              Oyster Bar @ Grand Central
              Sarge's and 2nd Ave Deli for a nice pastrami sammich
              Ali Baba Turkish on 34th
              Ethos Greek
              El Parador Mexican but a little fancy on 34th off 2nd (close to Murray Hill)
              That's just a few of our favorites
