3   Bobby Van’s Steakhouse  Bobby Van's serves some of the city's best steaks and lobsters to a loyal, local, and low-key clientele. While there are several other Manhattan steakhouses in the same quality range, few provide an overall experience as satisfying as Van's.

4   Boi   Modest and attractive casual Vietnamese that pleases all palates.

5   Dean’s Pizza  Dean’s thin crust, brick oven pizza is heaven, served in a stylish restaurant at reasonable prices. Every pizza contains homemade mozzarella and a choice of a dozen fresh toppings. Dean’s also offers a full Italian menu, salads, and a complete wine list.

6   Eastside Social Club  Restaurateur Billy Gilroy (Employees Only) runs this restaurant and bar in the old Montparnasse space in the Pod Hotel, where the premises have been transformed into a three-section, 113-seat restaurant with burgundy-upholstered booths and red carpeting. Plus cocktails by the Employees Only crew.

7   Grifone  Small, sedate, classic Northern Italian at this cozy Midtown hideaway. Impeccable service, and solid cooking are the hallmarks of this antidote to trendy.

8   Le Pain Quotidien  International chain of Belgian bakeries of surprisingly high quality and pleasant atmosphere.

9   Macchiato Espresso Bar  Bustling coffee bar and quick sandwiches and salads

10   Patsy’s Pizzeria   In the early 1900’s, working in the Salumerias of Little Italy, Patsy Lancieri perfected New York Style Pizza. In 1933, he opened the city’s first Pizzeria Restaurant on 118th Street and First Avenue, establishing himself as New York’s foremost pizza baker and inspiring scores of imitators. Over 60 years later, Patsy’s Pizzerias still proudly serve his famous recipe old–world–style pizza throughout the city.

11   Smith & Wollensky  Urban cowboys herd together over big steaks with knives to match. There's surf and turf aplenty, improvisations at lunch, and a mostly-American wine cellar.

12   Sparks Steak House  With a super high–quality New York strip, Sparks achieves that delicate balance between tradition and big-city chic better than any big-volume steakhouse in Manhattan.

13   Sushi Yasuda   The variety and freshness of its food, both raw and cooked, puts Sushi Yasuda in the top ranks of NYC’s Japanese restaurants. But it is the impeccable fish served in a bamboo–surfaced room that shines.

14   World Bar at Trump International  Everything from the back-lit marble bar to the bronze tables signals luxury at this bar in the lobby of the Trump International Hotel.

15   Avra Estiatorio  Take a breath and relax, as Avra Estiatorio takes you away from the bustling streets of New York City into a Mediterranean sanctuary. The open kitchen with its magnificent fish display prepares the freshest selections right from the sea, including Mediterranean specialties such as Barbounia, Lithrini, and Fagri.

16   La Fonda del Sol  Known for serving the finest modern-Spanish cuisine, La Fonda del Sol is a great place for both a vibrant, family-style dinner at the tapas bar or a more intimate setting in the main dining room. With an elegant setting and sophisticated wait staff, there is a reason everyone keeps going back.
