Ootoya is a Japanese restaurant chain with many locations in Japan and three in NYC. Both the space and the menu are huge, and a meal here can be affordable if you order right. It isn’t going to be the best Japanese food you’ll ever have, but they do a good pork katsu curry and the pressed salmon sushi is fun to eat with its three different preparations. That’s only a fraction of the menu, however. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Come here the next time you’re near Times Square and you want to eat some decent Japanese food without spending a stupid amount of money.

Bill's Bar & Burger
We had hoped that instead of conforming to Midtown, Bill’s Bar and Burger would make Midtown conform to it. It did not.
The best way for us to give you the lowdown on this place is to explain that it's really two different experiences: the bar, and the dining room. One is a three course, prixe fixe fine dining experience, the other sleek, more relaxed, often features some Action at the Bar. If you're going, go big and eat in the dining room.
