There are a few locations of Souvlaki GR, and the one in Midtown East is in a basement on 53rd Street. And despite the fact that it’s in a small, windowless space in the bottom of a building, it still manages to feel like something you’d find on a Greek island. Stop by for a quick sit-down lunch, or just pick up a pita stuffed with meat and vegetables. The Greek food here is great, and (possibly due to the fact that it’s semi-hidden) this place doesn’t get as busy as it should.

Tsushima is a perfectly fine sushi spot in Midtown. It won’t blow your mind, but it might come in handy if you need something last-minute.
We’re actually surprised more people don’t flock to Monkey Bar. It’s a fine restaurant, especially for Midtown which is filled with overpriced letdowns kept afloat by tourists and suits who don’t know any better than to plunge their money directly into the dumpster.

An unexpectedly great Greek restaurant on York Avenue. If we just had a better way to get up here, we'd be here all the time. Who wants to carpool?
