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.

Otway is a Clinton Hill restaurant in a beautiful space that’s good for drinks and appetizers.
Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.
