Dinner within a 15 Walk of Columbus Circle

Looking for a place to have dinner on a Monday night where we can be in by 6 PM and out by 7 PM, that is within a 15 minute walk to Columbus Circle.

  1. What about Landmarc in the Time Warner Center? Delicious food, casual atmosphere.

    1. Szechuan Gourmet, 56th and 8th.
      Landmarc, inside the Time Warner Center

      1. Sushi yasaka, be sure to make a reservation

        Salumeria rosi could also work if you make a res to avoid waiting for a table

          You'd have to walk pretty fast to get to Sushi Yasaka from Columbus Circle in 15 minutes. 12 blocks north and then all the way to West End. Probably more than a mile

          Good place though.

            Less than a mile. 59th-72nd is 13 blocks. Add another 3 for the avenue block from Broadway to West End and you get 16/20 of a mile.

              1. re: Pan

                No, crosstown blocks are about 7 to the mile, not 20 to the mile (as in uptown downtown). Although they vary more.

                So, it's 13/20 + 3/7 = 151/140 or a little more than a mile.

                I also looked on HopStop and it said 17 minutes but didn't say how fast you had to walk or what the distance was.

                1. re: plf515

                  No... it is 1 crosstown block from Broadway to West End(or not even a full one from Broadway to Yasaka) just as Pan pointed out in saying "Add another 3 for the avenue block from Broadway to West End" So it actually is 16/20 or 8 tenths.. yes, a long walk but not quite as long as you were saying... had you read Pan's post more carefully before correcting him... you might have seen his math actually was right.

              Enjoy! They have a great wines by the glass selection and i love their marinated artichokes....

                Dont pass on the Salumi board. Get the large one to avoid any issue with the dining companion(s). Also try the Amatriciana, Salsiccia, and the Lasagna

                  And if you like tripe, don't miss it. Best I've ever had. Their porchetta sandwich is pretty addictive as well.

                  1. re: JoanN

                    The tripe at Ouest and the tripe at Salumeria Rosi are both great.

                    1. re: plf515

                      Never had the tripe at Ouest. Will have to remedy that. Thanks for the heads up, plf515.

                      Damn you and your wonderful New England seafood!
                      I've been to Causeway in Glaucester. What a great place.
                      If you want to try some more Los Cubanos here check out the Pig's Head Cuban at Cannibal, Gotham West Market

                      1. re: Ziggy41

                        Is it really made of pig's head? I am not a bizarre foods person!

                        1. re: professor shorthair

                          Oh, its not too bad at all. They slow cook the nostrils and that brain if properly soaked goes really well with the pickles and Gruyere.
                          j/k It will taste like a really good Cuban
                          We also have a Pig's ass sandwich at Casellula which is popular. One tastes like head while the other tastes like...
