Restaurants in Midtown

Sprawling new-baroque drinking and dining venue

Opened in 1913, tucked in the vaulted subterranean chambers of Grand Central Station, the Oyster Bar serves two million bivalves a year.

Just a half block off Times Square, the Lambs Club restaurant inside the Chatwal Hotel is home to one of the better bars in Midtown, which is chockfull of overpriced and rowdy pubs. The Bar, on the second floor of the restaurant, overlooks the hotel’s sleek narrow red-and-black lobby.

Restaurateur David Burke has created a two-faced restaurant spanning the 59th Street side of the iconic Midtown Bloomingdales.

Chef Michael White’s third New York City restaurant, Marea, is, as the name implies, a tribute to the harmonious union of seafood and Italian cuisine. Located on Central Park South, Marea features a subdued, yet inviting dining room with warm yellow accent walls behind the bar and booths.
