We would never tell you to go out of your way for Arlington Club, but if you find your way here we’d recommend you go for drinks over food. The cocktails are solid, and the room feels like a medieval lair (or just an over the top Upper East Side country club). If you do come hungry, your options are (pricey) steak, oysters, and fish.

Waiting in a line outside of any restaurant seems a bit silly to us, but Tomoe is arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, as you will see by those patiently standing single file out front on most nights.
