The Refinery Hotel is surrounded by about 1,000 different office buildings, so you’re going to find a lot of people trying to hang out out here after work. You might even have trouble getting a table. If you want to play it safe, make a reservation. This is a pretty casual rooftop with some brick walls and comfy chairs, and there’s both an indoor and an outdoor area. It’s great for groups, so find a bunch of coworkers you don’t mind and bring them up here. If someone’s hungry, there’s a lot of decent bar food. Flatbreads, kale salad - that sort of stuff.

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.
