- Casellula Wine & Cheese Bar, 401 W 52nd St, New York, NY 10019 – glad to see this place is still around. More a restaurant than a bar but can you go wrong with wine & cheese?
- Katsu-hama, (upstairs) 43-45 W 55th St, New York, NY 10019 -Feeling hungry? This is full on. Items not to miss include: the panko fried pork cutlet with curry sauce, fresh cabbage and mashed potato at this Japanese soul food place.
- Le Pain Quotidien, 53rd betwen Madison and 5th ave this Belgian import is part of the international chain café war, but enjoy a cup of jo and pain au chocolat here while the chain gangs duke it out.
- The London Hotel Bar 151 W 54th St, New York, NY 10019 – It’s a terrible shame that Maze is gone, but the location still has a really great bar worth checking out if you’re in the area.
- The Peninsula Hotel has got a couple good options on the roof (heated outdoors / limited indoor seating, or the Clement on the 3rd floor.
- Tanner Smith’s Cocktail Bar, 204 W 55th St, New York, NY 10019 – Although it gets crowded, the drinks are really good at this popular hotspot
- The Warwick Hotel 65 W. 54th Street, New York, NY 10019 – This old school classy hotel bar speaks to me. Relax on a cozy leather seat and catch up with your mate in sophisticated surroundings.
- Yakitori Totto 251 W 55th St, New York, NY 10019 – one of my favorite Japanese Izakaya / yakitori places in Manhattan. Cozy, sophisticated interior, great food. Popularity can create long waits, but it’s worth it.
