  • After taking over the Four Seasons space, The Grill has captured attention for its mid-century style and 21st-century cuisine



Where to find delicious meals and beverages at any hour of the day




The Grill New York

The Seagram Building

99 East 52nd St.

As bartenders pour martinis from cut crystal decanters, guests might imagine the likes of Don Draper waltzing into The Grill. Since the Major Food Group took over the Four Seasons space in the Seagram earlier this year, The Grill has captured attention for its mid-century style and 21st-century cuisine. Guests favor the Pasta a la Presse, and the avocado crab Louis is not to be missed. Much of the preparation is done tableside, so come for a meal and stay for the theatrics. The drama and elegance of this classic chophouse makes it the type of place where two-hour and three-drink lunches take place.




Boulud Sud

20 West 64th St.

The Mediterranean-inspired flavors of Boulud Sud aren't necessarily enhanced by the vaulted ceilings and spacious dining area, but it probably feels that way. The prix fixe menu includes numerous courses and generous portions, and if this pre-opera standby is already a neighborhood favorite, then perhaps the Christmas Eve menu, which boasts octopus a la plancha as a starter and pistachio bche de Nol for dessert, will make it worth another visit.




Don Angie

103 Greenwich Ave.

For a new Manhattan Italian restaurant to stand out, it takes far more than good marinara sauce. Maybe stuffed garlic flatbread would do it, or a creamy buffalo milk caramelle appetizer with persimmon and black sesame or a hearty dish of soppressini and mussels. Don Angie, a cozy Italian spot that opened in the West Village earlier this year, has all of the above. Husband & wife team Angie Rito and Scott Tacinelli have taken classic Italian to a new level, and for prices that won't break the bank to boot. Go out for date night and make it a new local haunt.
