Natureworks makes food for people who constantly check their body fat percentage and talk about gaining “mass”. They’re all about protein here, although they also like their complex carbs and steamed vegetables. Essentially, it’s food for bodybuilders. But it’s also a decent option if you just want a plain lunch that will leave you feeling pretty good. If you just got your lift on, maybe you go for the Lean & Ripped plate. Wash it down with their Post Workout Shake and you’re well on your way to being, like, so ripped.

All observations about the clientele aside, Nobu 57 is still a pretty damn good meal. It’s hard not to love those classic dishes, as long as you can swallow the hefty price tag.

The Smith Midtown
If Midtown East is the final frontier of food-obsessed New York City, The Smith Midtown is the Starship Enterprise.
Perry St is a nice place, but it’s completely sterile and a little stuffy. The food was a let down - we expect a more dynamic meal from a Jean Georges restaurant.
A classic New York City gem, still standing from a time when horse and buggies were bringing people here to drink. Eat the chicken club sandwich, drink a Stella from the tap, and imagine that you're about to head off for a sweet vacation aboard the Titanic.
