This is an upscale steakhouse just a block from Grand Central, and it’s the sort of spot where you can eat some quality red meat with a client or a few members of your extended family. It has high ceilings, a casual bar area up front, and servers who all wear bow ties. The food is pretty straightforward, and if you’re looking for a wedge salad followed by a thick, perfectly cooked slab of filet mignon, you’ll be happy here. On the way out, stop in the entryway and stare at photos of celebrities who have eaten here before you (Warren Sapp and Fountains of Wayne, for example).

Bill's Bar & Burger
We had hoped that instead of conforming to Midtown, Bill’s Bar and Burger would make Midtown conform to it. It did not.
It seems like lately, all of the Korean food we’ve been eating has been of the “trendy re-interpretation” variety. While we’re fine with that, occasionally we get a craving for a more traditional meal, and for that, we head to Madangsui.
If you want to get a quick sit-down meal near Grand Central, go eat some pork katsu at Katsu-Hama.

Runner & Stone
Don't make the trek down to Gowanus just for Runner & Stone, but if you want a reliable meal in the neighborhood, go for it.
Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.

Peter Luger Steak House
Peter Luger is a New York City steakhouse institution, and eating here is an experience unlike any other in the city.
Even though it's in Midtown, this multi-level meat market serves up one of our favorite steaks in town, and it's not what you might expect from a steakhouse in the area.
Keens is as Old New York as it gets.. Open since 1885, this steakhouse is pretty much the Museum of Natural Meat Eating History.
