It isn’t easy being hungry in Midtown. So it’s good to know about a place like Parker & Quinn. You aren’t going to go out of your way to come eat here, but if you need to grab breakfast with someone before you head into the office, it’s about 98% less depressing than Panera. Or grab some dinner here with a coworker. This is the restaurant in the bottom of the Refinery Hotel, and the menu has stuff for everyone. Smoothies, pasta, steak, salads - you’ll find something to make you a less hungry and more pleasant person.

Radiance Tea House
Radiance Tea House is a great little place to get some grub, drink a pot of tea, and maybe peruse a text about Buddhism. We find ourselves in here from time to time to do exactly that – except for the Buddhism part.
Sushi of Gari 46
A Midtown West/Times Square location of this classic New York sushi restaurant. Sushi of Gari is a solid option for the area.
Five years after it opened, the original location of Totto Ramen is still packed pretty much all of the time. That's because it's still awesome.

No, it’s not a bowling alley in Times Square. It’s the 25-year-old Keith McNally restaurant that’s way more fun than Balthazar.
Community Food & Juice
Community Food & Juice is one of the best brunch spots around Morningside Heights and Columbia University. Unfortunately, that's exactly when it's at its worst. Hit it any other time for best results.
Simon & The Whale
Simon and The Whale is the main restaurant at the Freehand Hotel, and it’s the sort of place where you can eat great food and run into an ex.
