Sometimes, you just want a sandwich for lunch - but not a sad one that’s been sitting in shrink wrap at a grocery store, waiting for a kind stranger to put it out of its misery. That’s what Le Petit Parisien is for. This is a French sandwich shop in Midtown East, and it serves some very good sandwiches on soft, chewy baguette, with ingredients like ham, smoked salmon, and duck rillettes. It’s also a charming little place with a patio out front where you can eat your sandwich and pretend you’re in Paris (if you squint).

We typically love ourselves some Michael White. Though his new hotel restaurant Ai Fiori is a sprawling space with more room than they know what to do with. Set inside The Setai, this is a bit of a cookie cutter hotel restaurant - one that isn’t bad, but just isn’t quite our style.
Turntable Chicken Jazz
Party time fried chicken in Midtown that’s absurdly addicting and a fun place to eat food if you don’t take yourself too seriously.
Hidden behind red velvet curtains inside Midtown's Le Parker Meridien hotel, this staged hole in the wall with eternal lines has NYC's best burger.

2nd Ave Deli
When the original 2nd Ave Deli closed, lots of New Yorkers channeled some nostalgic rage. At the new Murray Hill location, the old school charm may be gone, but the matzoh ball soup and pastrami sandwich have remained pretty much untouched.
A restaurant that only serves bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches. No, this is not a joke. BEC is real, and it's here to cure your hangover.
