It isn’t easy being hungry in Midtown. So it’s good to know about a place like Parker & Quinn. You aren’t going to go out of your way to come eat here, but if you need to grab breakfast with someone before you head into the office, it’s about 98% less depressing than Panera. Or grab some dinner here with a coworker. This is the restaurant in the bottom of the Refinery Hotel, and the menu has stuff for everyone. Smoothies, pasta, steak, salads - you’ll find something to make you a less hungry and more pleasant person.

Blue Ribbon Brasserie
The original Blue Ribbon in Soho, in which you can eat bone marrow, fried chicken, and oysters from a white table cloth at 3am. What a world.
At The Fly, you eat chicken and drink wine. In other words, it’s pretty ideal, and you should grab some dinner at this Bed-Stuy spot.
