Anyone have a good recommendation for dinner near Grand Central (any price)?

  1. Zengo on Third Ave @ 40th for Latin-Asian fusion.

    622 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10016

    1. It would be helpful to know your cuisine preferences, but that said...

      On 44th b/t 5th & 6th, Kellari's Taverna and dbBistro Moderne.

      1. I am not a Zengo fan. Overpriced and underwhelming IMHO. But a very nice space.

        Plenty of steakhouses to choose from if that's your thing: Palm, Keens, Smith & Wollensky's, Capital Grille, etc. as well as the Michael Jordan steakhouse in GCT itself (such a nice view).
        Pampano for upscale Mexican?

        Me, I'd make the walk and go to Ma Peche. Most inventive food in Midtown. You can even make reservations now.

        72 West 36th St., New York, NY 10018

        Michael Jordan's the Steak House NYC

        Capital Grille

        1. Ai Fiori is wonderful if price is not a issue.

          Ai Fiori

          1. Avra Estiatorio is a Greek restaurant specializing in seafood, very good. NE of Grand Central, on East 48th.
