The Cannibal Liquor House is the bar/restaurant from the people behind The Cannibal, and it’s one of the best places to get a nice cocktail in the Murray Hill/Kips Bay area. Granted, there aren’t that many great bars in the area - so that might not be as impressive as it sounds. Still, if you need a good tiki drink or a whiskey cocktail called a “Truffle Shuffle,” and you happen to in East Thirties, we recommend this place. You can also grab dinner here (it’s sort of a restaurant), although the menu is mostly bar foods. They have burgers, wings, calamari, and brussels sprouts. There’s a dining room in back, but stay up front if you want to grab a few quick drinks and make a quick exit.

A conveniently located restaurant in Midtown that’s more than just convenient. The food and service at Covina are great.
2nd Ave Deli
When the original 2nd Ave Deli closed, lots of New Yorkers channeled some nostalgic rage. At the new Murray Hill location, the old school charm may be gone, but the matzoh ball soup and pastrami sandwich have remained pretty much untouched.
Sticky's Finger Joint
Sticky's Finger Joint now has a location on 33rd and 3rd Avenue, and as far as we can tell, that's pretty much the restaurant equivalent of an putting an ATM in a strip club. There's no chance it doesn't get used, and there's no chance it doesn't make money.

Union Square Cafe
Union Square Cafe is a classic New York City restaurant having its second life in a new space. The good news? It’s still as good as ever.
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.
Blue Ribbon Brasserie
The original Blue Ribbon in Soho, in which you can eat bone marrow, fried chicken, and oysters from a white table cloth at 3am. What a world.

Albion isn't like the rest of the Murray Hill bars, which is to say that you'll actually want to come here for a beer.
Flatiron Lounge is a somewhat fancy cocktail bar in Flatiron with a great Happy Hour.
