Agern is an upscale Nordic restaurant in Grand Central. And if that description just made you think no thanks, you should actually reconsider. Instead of the bland, perpetual-winter stuff that you might be imagining, these people serve pork belly, grilled mackerel, and salt cod croquettes with a dipping sauce that should be on the tables at every Long John Silvers. The dinner prix fixe is pricey ($175), but at lunch it goes down to $55 for two courses, and it’s much easier to get a table than it should be. So don’t hesitate to have your next business lunch meeting here.

We’re actually surprised more people don’t flock to Monkey Bar. It’s a fine restaurant, especially for Midtown which is filled with overpriced letdowns kept afloat by tourists and suits who don’t know any better than to plunge their money directly into the dumpster.

Gramercy Tavern is an incredible restaurant. But you already know that. The bar is the move you want to make here, and you want to make it often.
