  1. 1. The Post House - Top-end

    Show more

    The Post House is not your traditional meat-and-potatoes steakhouse. There are as many non–red meat items on the menu as there are steak and chops. But if you think of it as a steakhouse then you can forget those other options and order the Cajun rib-eye steak, broiled in a subtle cayenne rub that perfectly melds with the richness of the meat.

  2. 2. Ben Benson’s Steakhouse - Top-end

    Show more

    There aren’t many better steakhouses than Ben Benson’s. Smack in the middle of Midtown, it’s loud and large, and though it’s definitely a man’s world, women are treated with respect here. So is the beef, whether it's a big, meaty slab of sirloin, T-bone, or filet mignon, or a slightly daintier cut of meat.

  3. 3. En Japanese Brasserie - Top-end

    Show more

    At En they bill themselves as a “modern izakaya,” a kind of Japanese pub where diners share small plates along with beer, sake, or shochu (a vodkalike drink made from various ingredients like barley, sweet potato, and buckwheat). If you're a fan of pubs in general, you'll appreciate this one, as you can sample numerous sakes along with amazing dishes.

    Aquavit, in the bottom of a glass tower on East 55th Street, is designed in sleek Scandinavian style with modernist furniture. Try the herring plate, four types of herring accompanied by a tiny glass of aquavit, distilled liquor not unlike vodka flavoured with fruit and spices, and a frosty Carlsberg beer.

  5. 5. The Mark Restaurant - Top-end

    Show more

    Everything comes together as it usually does for chef/restaurateur Jean Georges Vongerichten at this New York City venture in the Mark Hotel. The Mark Restaurant offers perfection on every level. The long dining room is airy, with ample comfortable seating including many tables in a recessed glass solarium. Service is low key, not overly formal, but always attentive while the food is hard to beat.

  1. 6. Scarpetta - Mid-range

    Show more

    Don’t be fooled by the unassuming, dimly lit exterior—Scarpetta's dining experience is anything but that. The skylight-ceilinged dining room is a grand arena to showcase the famed chef Scott Conant’s talents with Italian cuisine.  Desserts are as good as the entrees — do not leave without trying one, in particular, the chocolate and vanilla parfait. The restaurant is busy and bustling, yet service is unflappable.

    Tamarind, in the Flatiron district, creates innovative variations on classic Indian cuisine. In a modern dining room decorated with Indian textiles, diners can enjoy Tandoor-baked specialities like jhinga angarey - king prawns marinated in yoghurt, chillies and coriander. The Raji thali, an assortment of lentils, vegetables, tandoori salad, rice and relishes, is a vegetarian treat.Show this on map

  3. 8. Aldea - Mid-range

    Show more

    Chefs sometimes get carried away with their own ambitions and distract from the food. At the very pleasant, low-key Aldea, I’m glad to report that chef George Mendes keeps it simple, letting the fresh, first-rate ingredients shine without too much accompaniment. Though he is Portuguese American, only traces of Portuguese cooking can be found in his appetizers and petiscos (small bites.)

  4. 9. A Voce Columbus Circle - Mid-range

    The original A Voce off Madison Park has always been popular, but this one, which opened in 2009 in the Time Warner Center and has a picture windows overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park, is even better. A grand experience on every level, the room is big, sparkling and convivial with to-die-for views, but take all that away and you still have the food.

  5. 10. Barbounia - Mid-range

    Show more

    The countries of Greece and Israel, separated by the Mediterranean, represent the cradle of civilization, so it should be no surprise that their cuisines, with a detour to another ancient land, Turkey, mesh as well as they do at Barbounia. This ornate, high-ceilinged restaurant complete with Moorish columns is gorgeous, but those same cavernous features make for a loud experience.

  6. 11. Keens Steakhouse - Mid-range

    Show more

    Until the latter part of the 20th century, Keens, which was established in the same location in 1885, referred to itself as a “chop house,” but they're now known as a steakhouse. To their credit, they are a steakhouse in name only. They serve the basics of a steakhouse but they still serve chops: lamb chops, prime rib, short ribs, and most notably, mutton chops.

  1. 12. Katz's Delicatessen - Budget

    Show more

    Founded in 1888, this place is suitably Noo Yawk, with dill pickles, Dr. Brown’s cream soda, and old-world attitude to spare. Take a ticket and either head for the cafeteria-style line, or sit in the “waiter service” area. One word of caution: Katz’s has become a tourist destination, so if you see a tour bus parked in front, you can expect a long wait.

    If you need incentive to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, Grimaldi’s, in Brooklyn Heights, easily provides it. In fact, the pizza is so good, made in a coal oven with a rich flavorful sauce and homemade mozzarella, you might run across the bridge to get to it. Be warned: It can get very crowded at dinnertime.

  3. 14. Burger Joint - Budget

    Who knew that the gleaming marble lobby of Le Parker Meridien Hotel concealed a roadhouse-style burger joint? The only indication it’s here is a little neon sign at the end of a curtained hallway. Order one of the fine, juicy burgers and enjoy the determinedly hash-house setting. Then have another: it’s downright cheap, for classy-hotel grub.

    Though they are open all day, breakfast and desserts are the best offerings here.
