For a quick sit-down meal, Katsu-Hama is one of your best options in the Grand Central area. It’s a little Japanese restaurant that specializes in pork katsu, with a bunch of different combinations available. You can get yours with a side of fried shrimp (highly recommended), or some excellent brown curry. Bring a friend after work, or stop by for an easy dinner before a Broadway show.

Four years after our first review, Danji is still the restaurant we recommend most in the Midtown/Times Square area.
All observations about the clientele aside, Nobu 57 is still a pretty damn good meal. It’s hard not to love those classic dishes, as long as you can swallow the hefty price tag.

A great East Village date night spot, especially when you get the adjacent cocktail lounge, Angel's Share, involved.
We are not usually impressed by exclusive “secret restaurants,” but the food is absolutely excellent here, and the environment delivers, too.
Nonono is a Japanese restaurant in Nomad where you can try a ton of great food and still have an affordable dinner.
