Manhattan and its surrounding areas are filled with restaurants that are worth trying at least once in your lifetime. Heck, I’ve done hundreds over the past decade with plenty more to go. My foodie travels have been plentiful over the past month, with four places in particular that I think you’ll enjoy this spring and beyond.
We are highlighting four fantastic spots, all in different areas with unique cuisines, settings, and above all… tastiness. Check them out.
Park Avenue Tavern: 99 Park Avenue
What makes Park Avenue Tavern so fabulous goes beyond its deliciously hearty American eats. For one, its a great place to stop in if you are around the Grand Central area (two blocks away). Secondly, the atmosphere inside its two levels is inviting, fun and friendly, where you can enjoy a sprawling bar setting with all the fixings or a table for two with some yummy treats to devour. An order of Korean BBQ Chicken Wings, Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich and a beer or two will make your night there that much better. More info here.
Wolfgang’s Steakhouse: 250 W. 41st Street
You’d have to be living under a rock to not know who Wolfgang Puck is. The celebrated and beloved restaurateur has several of his restaurants scattered throughout Manhattan, where each and every option that is presented is handled with finesse while packing a massive flavor punch. If you are in the mood for lunch, then sit on down and try his succulent Shrimp Cocktail, Steak Sandwich and his Ice Cream Sundae to finish. Bravo. More information here.
Kyma: 1446 Old Northern Blvd, Roslyn
If Greek is for you, then Kyma is the place to go to. What’s even better is that they have two fabulous locations: one in the Flatiron district and the other in Roslyn, Long Island. The Roslyn location is intimacy personified in a beautiful area. The Greek cuisine they provide is nothing short of spectacular, as each dish transports you from the Island of Long to the heart of Greece the instant the food hits your mouth. Start with some yummy Kyma chips and work your way towards several other Greek-inspired dishes like their mouthwatering Seafood Linguini. Yum. More info here.
Clinton Hall: Variety of Locations in NYC
Take the bar aspects of the classic sitcom Cheers with life-sized board games and delectable eats and you have Clinton Hall. It’s like an upscale birthday party each time you go on there. Dine on a gigantic Bavarian Pretzel while playing Jenga and dancing the night away with your friends. Woohoo! More info here.
