Pomona is across the street from the Plaza Hotel and underneath the Paris Theater, and while you will find a $19 shrimp cocktail and a royal caviar eclair on the menu, this place doesn’t feel stuffy. There’s a casual bar space, a dining room with big orange leather booths, and music like Christine and the Queens on the speakers. The food is on the heavy side - they serve goose fat tater tots and a duck confit burger with duck skin mayo and duck jus. Come here when you want an upscale dinner and are OK with $40 entrees, but don’t want to feel out of place wearing jeans.

Milos is a Midtown Greek restaurant specializing in fresh fish shipped in from the Mediterranean daily. It's pricey for dinner, but lunch is a steal.

TAK Room is on the fifth floor of the giant mall at Hudson Yards, and it’s a very expensive place to eat some pretty good American food.
Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.
