Midtown version of the iconic Chandler Park restaurant, home of the mile-high biscuit. Breakfast served all day. Lunch options (soups, salads, sandwiches) and comfort food–friendly suppers served, too.
The family-owned restaurant has held steady, surviving many changes near Midtown's most iconic corner. You'll find authentic Mexican fare, award-winning margaritas, and good people-watching on the patio.
Much beloved authentic Italian deli that offers fresh-baked bread, hearty sandwiches, choice cold cuts, cheese, wine and more. Basically: anything a New Yorker lost in the 'burbs — or someone who appreciates quality food — would enjoy.
Well-known for its excellence in baked goods and homey atmosphere, Alon's addition of an open kitchen and carryout case creates a swankier feel and options that are meant to be eaten at home. The meatballs look good and taste even better. You'll want to sop up the leftover sauce with some of Alon's fresh breads. You can't go wrong with the robust roasted lamb sandwich, the marinated and grilled chicken sandwich, the flaky croissants and the crumbly muffins. As always, the desserts will leave you speechless.
Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison have created another remarkable restaurant. The pair has been at the forefront of farm-to-table dining in our city and Abattoir--featuring "local proteins"--is a natural extension of that. Besides joining the whole-animal trend of eating everything from the ears to the tail, the restaurant is also a response to the recession. Prices, like a $10 burger, are significantly lower than Bacchanalia's and Floataway's. And the menu, prepared by executive chef Joshua Hopkins, is not all weirdness, even though any adventurous foodie will be drawn to the offal dishes.
With a beer selection wide enough to please anyone from a keg-standing frat boy to a true connoisseur, Five Seasons Brewing Company serves up passionately crafted, in-house brews that give you plenty of bang for only a few bucks. Though their focus is beer, their wine and food menus are equally ambitious and rangy. The pommes frites, lobster cakes and grilled pizzas are perfect compliments to an already fabulous beer buzz. With the exception of a buttery pecan tart, steer clear of the sweets as their desserts are a little too heavy for a beer-laden belly.
