Within Walking Distance of The Kitano
Looking for casual dining for lunch and dinner within walking distance of The Kitano - 66 Park Avenue.
Hakubai is right in the Kitano. It is where Sono-san the chef from the Michelin Starred Kyo Ya worked for many years. I would certainly go there.
Madison Bistro (Madison and 27th)
Rare Burger (Lexington and 37th)
Smorgas Chef (Park between 37 and 38)
Rossini's just down E38th for good old style red sauce Italian
On Lexington is:
Rare @ E 37
Mapo Tofu and Hunan Manor @ 40 ST
Below E 34 St on Lexington
Da Ciro Excellent Italian
Marcony Excellent Italian
Penelope for breakfast
Vezzo for good thin crust pizza
Don't forget the Grand Central Oyster Bar for oysters and chowder. The rest of the menu is not memorable.
If you like Jazz the club @ the Kitano is excellent but there are better dinner choices
L'Express down Park Ave is open 24/7 and has decent food fr a late night snack.
