Tsushima isn’t our first pick for sushi near Grand Central, but it’s a solid backup plan for when you can’t get into a place like Wokuni or Hatsuhana. The sushi here is decent and not astronomically expensive, and the space is charming and minimalist, with a couple of big semi-private tables around the edge of the dining room. Plus, the service is speedy. Are you going to impress anyone with this place? Probably not. But you might find it useful the next time you need to get a last-minute dinner in Midtown.

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.
PizzArte is not just another pizza joint. It also happens to be an art gallery. That must have sounded awesome in the business plan.
