Restaurants in Midtown East

The Silverleaf Tavern in Murray Hill puts a new twist on the traditional neighborhood pub. The luxurious interior is accented with leather and exposed brick; high-back mahogany banquettes provide an intimate space for conversation.

Savor the "cuisine of the sun" at Murray Hill's Artisanal Fromagerie and Bistro, where the Art Deco dining room recalls the calm, confident style of Paris circa 1930, from the antique, mural-sized painting on the back wall to the Parisian-style cheese cave.

The namesake of acclaimed chef Daniel Boulud, this New French restaurant is often lauded as one of the best in the nation. Situated in the Upper East Side, Daniel was renovated in 2008 by celebrated designer Adam D.

One of the city’s few remaining traditional French restaurants, La Grenouille is still a top choice for special occasion dining, more than half a century since its opening in 1962.

Keep a careful eye out for the entrance to this sushi haven in Midtown. With just a small sign and a door, chef Toshihiro Uezo’s restaurant is unassuming in nearly every way, with none of the bling of his trendier neighbors, just a classic red and black lacquered bar and a few Japanese accents.

Donatella Arpaia and Michael Psilakis of New York’s perennially packed Kefi restaurant are behind this informal Italian kitchen. Not to be missed—Psilakis’s signature gnudi with crispy prosciutto and truffle butter.

Inspired by his childhood spent in a small Japanese fishing village, renowned chef Naomichi Yasuda trained for more than two decades in Tokyo and New York before opening this namesake sushi restaurant in midtown.

Just a short hop eastward from Grand Central Station, installed on the basement level of an office building on East 43rd Street, is an authentic Japanese izakaya with a reputation for being one of the best sake bars in the United States.

Now in residence at the St Regis Hotel, Chef Alain Ducasse's latest foray into the New York restaurant scene is a French wine restaurant.

A standout in a neighborhood crowded with Indian restaurants, this discreet establishment packs in the midtown Manhattan lunch crowd.

The Grill Room at the Four Seasons on East 52nd Street is a New York City classic—with the price tag to prove it.
