  1. Midtown is big--where in midtown?

    Weekday or weekend?


    1. My go-to places in midtown west is Ai Fiori

      1. Midtown West: Route 66
        Midtown East: Scotty's Diner or Penelope

        1. I had a surprisingly good breakfast this morning at Cafe Centro.

              Because I consider Cafe Centro to be a soulless place run by an organization of soulless restaurants.

              But the food was well prepared and tasty, the service was competent, and the price was reasonable.

                It's in our "hood" but we've never been drawn there.

              Cafe Centro is actually my go to breakfast place in midtown - because its very convenient (I commute into Grand Central on my way to the financial district so its a good place to have a morning meeting with midtown folks), its bright and airy, the service is good, and the food is solid. Nothing earth shattering, but consistently good.

                We are big fans of Scotty's on Lex. We'll have to give Centro a try.

                1. re: Bloombee

                  That certainly was my experience, as well.

              2. Thanks everyone! Sorry for not beeing specific, but really Midtown in general was of interest.

                  Do you realize that Midtown stretches from the East River to the Hudson River?

                    Yes and from around 30th to 60th Street, right:-)? I just wanted to hear some favourites as i really dont know good places for breakfast there.
