Gregory’s is a coffee chain with a lot of locations in neighborhoods like Midtown, Fidi, and Herald Square. They aren’t the coolest coffee shops in the world, but they’re useful to know about, and they aren’t bad spots to hang out (especially if you’re into pastries). So if you ever find yourself in Midtown and you have some time to kill or work to do, look for a Gregory’s. There will probably be one near you.

The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.
Four years after our first review, Danji is still the restaurant we recommend most in the Midtown/Times Square area.
The best way for us to give you the lowdown on this place is to explain that it's really two different experiences: the bar, and the dining room. One is a three course, prixe fixe fine dining experience, the other sleek, more relaxed, often features some Action at the Bar. If you're going, go big and eat in the dining room.
