Riki is a casual Japanese restaurant with a giant menu that has everything from sashimi to okonomiyaki and skewered meats. It’s a good option if you’re meeting a friend for something low-key and want to split everything - or if you want to eat alone at the sushi bar (where they sometimes show videos of cats doing stupid things on the TV screens).

The Shakespeare @ The William
If you’re looking for an English pub in Midtown, The Shakespeare is quite possibly the nicest. Stop by for happy hour.
We typically love ourselves some Michael White. Though his new hotel restaurant Ai Fiori is a sprawling space with more room than they know what to do with. Set inside The Setai, this is a bit of a cookie cutter hotel restaurant - one that isn’t bad, but just isn’t quite our style.
