The Palm Too has been open since 1973, and it looks like it hasn’t changed much since then. It’s an old-fashioned steakhouse with white tablecloths and walls covered in caricatures of loyal customers, and it’s a solid place to bring someone who wants a classic NYC experience that’s still convenient to the train. The lightly charred steaks are excellent, the food is otherwise mostly just fine, and everything is a little pricey. But it’s a unique spot that feels like a brief trip back to the time when people wore hats to work and drank martinis at lunch.

The Lambs Club
It’s rare that we back this type of restaurant, but The Lambs Club is Infatuation approved for Pre-Theater Eats and Corporate Card use in Midtown.
We’re actually surprised more people don’t flock to Monkey Bar. It’s a fine restaurant, especially for Midtown which is filled with overpriced letdowns kept afloat by tourists and suits who don’t know any better than to plunge their money directly into the dumpster.
Toloache ain’t cheap, but in an area where dropping dollars on grub is a given, it’s a breath of fresh air when the food is legitimately awesome.

21 Greenpoint is a great neighborhood spot that’s not just a consolation prize if you can’t get into Paulie Gee’s across the street.
Minetta Tavern in Greenwich Village is home to some of the best steaks, chops, burgers, and overall feel good vibes that New York City has to offer.
The Smith Lincoln Center
That's right, another Infatuation review for yet another location of The Smith. Why? Because The Smith is always there when you need it to be. Sometimes for the food. Sometimes for the bathroom. Either way, it's there, and it's good.
