meals in nyc for shabbat
Chabad of Midtown is at 5th Ave/57th Street. They do very nice Shabbat meals, with good catered food. It's not a restaurant, but it's classic stuff like chicken soup and gefilte fish, all very fresh and tastes good, and is served nicely on china, etc. The crowd there tends to be diverse and interesting, with tourists, people traveling for business, students, etc. Unlike at a restaurant (in my experience), there is a friendly vibe where you feel comfortable chatting with random people at your table.
