    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.

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

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

              1. I like Soba Totto for the atmosphere, but Sakagura is doing more interesting food right next door. I also second Yasuda.

                1. What type of food and how far away are you willing to go? If you are talking a few blocks, there is some great Japanese and steak, but other than that, choices are limited IMHO.

                  1. I also love Avra but would also recommend Osteria Laguna on 42nd just east of GCT. Lovely Italian.
