Where to eat in New York

Friday 08 May 2015 by Jo Redman New York is home to a plethora of restaurants that range from casual American diners to upmarket fine dining experiences. With so many districts all within short distance of each other, you’ll be able to experience everything on offer.

Where to eat

5 Napkin Burger is not your average New York burger chain - it is a fine dining experience that has built itself a reputation. So much so, that you can choose from four restaurants across the city, all offering a wide range of delicious burgers, including the famous 5 Napkin Burger that consists of 10 ounces of fresh beef topped with gruyere cheese, caramelised onions and rosemary aioli – irresistible, right?

Set within Greenwich Village and surrounded by fellow quaint Italian cafes, La Lanterna stands apart due to its glowing ambience of beautifully lit lanterns and its secluded spot away from the main streets. With live jazz music and entertainment every night, this cosy and unassuming setting is a truly idyllic place to spend a romantic evening.

Quality Meats is a premier restaurant located on the South side of Central Park on W 59th Ave. The cosy yet industrial décor resembles a traditional New York butchers – warm wood, stainless steel and white marble. Legendary Chef Craig Koketsu puts his own twist on unique flavours, sourcing all the meat from two renowned family butchers – from the irresistible sticky baby back ribs to the porterhouse steak served with homemade sauce that’s created right before your eyes! This is a fine Steakhouse, so treat yourself if you don’t mind spending a little extra for one night!

The National Bar and Dining Rooms is run by internationally-acclaimed chef Geoffrey Zabakrian (he was recently crowned ‘The Next Iron Chef’). His vision was to create a Grand New York Café, and he's certainly hit the mark. Offering all-day dining, modern bistro cuisine and comfortable surroundings, this restaurant is a great relaxing retreat for a working lunch or leisurely lunch with your girlfriends.

After dinner treat?

If you’d like to make a bit more of your evening, then head to 230 5th Ave where you’ll find the 22,000 acre rooftop bar and penthouse lounge of 230 Fifth – the largest rooftop bar in the city. Owned by Steven Greenberg (king of rooftop bars), his own furniture reflects the 1940s modernist era, enveloped by palm trees and fountains. The magical views of the Empire State and the Chrysler Building make it an extraordinary experience that shouldn’t be missed!
