Midtown Winter Fitting Room


Totto Ramen

High-spirited and always crowded, the original location of this Tokyo-inspired slurp shop is worth the lunchtime frenzy. Watch cauldrons steam in the open kitchen or grab a table in the plywood-walled dining room. The standard order is Paitan Ramen. Pro tip: Add in spicy sesame oil & pulled char siu pork from the list of 20 toppings.


Burger Joint

See the neon burger inside the Le Parker Meridien lobby? Go that way for greasy deliciousness. A cardboard menu hangs near the register and every inch of the wood-panel walls is covered in signatures, sketches and tattered posters. No quite the secret it used to be, but just as tasty. Don't forget cash.


The Upsider

A newercomer with design nods to 1960s British Esquire, from custom brass and leather swivel stools to a 26-foot quartz, “Dollar Bill Green” painted bar. Chef David Colston (formerly Prime Meats, Momofuku Ko) leads the kitchen with a seasonal American menu.



Daniel alum Hooni Kim serves up less-fancy Korean tapas in this 36-seater with exposed bulbs shining through cagey chandeliers. Kim's menu combines classic dishes and modern twists, including soy-poached black cod, spicy "KFC" (Korean Fire Chicken) wings and beef bulgogi sliders said to give former Gourmet editor Ruth Reichl "fever dreams."


Ma Pêche

David Chang's outpost north of his East Village homebase takes advantage of its large footprint in the Chambers Hotel. We especially like the spacious balcony bar -- home to one of the best happy hours in the city. In the minimal downstairs dining room, chef Tien Ho serves shareable plates and dim-sum service, from pork jowl to raw bar items.



Buried underneath a non-descript office building, this bambooed and blonde-wooded bar-slash-izakaya eatery wins with a sake list of 200+ types, split into digestible categories like brewing method and region of origin. For lunchtime variety, the "Jewel" Oke Bento box never disappoints.



Kkorin has one of the world’s most impressive knife collections. Check out entry level prep blades to prestigious Nenohi kiritsukes, used by masters in Japan to slice fish “as fluidly as a river current.”


Little Collins

A bustling cafe that prides itself on bringing a bit of Melbourne to Manhattan. Cutting edge coffee service (LC's the first place in NYC to use new wave Modbar brewing equipment) and surprisingly great food (smashed avocado toast with feta, a lunchtime braised short rib sandwich) give Midtown a reason to pour out their chain coffee ways.


The Rum House

An updated riff on the Edison Hotel's piano bar by Tribeca's Ward III team. Its original spirit remains (wood walls, copper accents) and a brand new set of ivories is played nightly. From the cocktail list, try a house original like the Cynar-rinsed, rum-based Kid Creole or stick with the timeless taste of a well-made daiquiri.


Reichenbach Hall

Oktoberfest never ends here. Keith and Willy Reichenbach opened their bierhaus in 2013, inspired by the weekend-long parties thrown by their first generation grandparents. An all-German draft list is available by the half or full liter, while the ready-to-go opt for the two liter boot. Best served with a steering wheel-sized hot pretzel and bratwurst plate.


The Campbell Apartment

Located in Grand Central and built in the '20s as an office for financier John Campbell, today this cocktail spot is the best reason to miss the train. The space retains many of its original details, including a hand-painted ceiling, leaded windows and Campbell's own steel safe. Stop by for "cocktails from another era." On that note, the Highlander comes highly recommended.


New York Public Library

In 1911, President Taft cut the ribbon on the NYPL's literary lion's den. The darling of this iconic building is the picturesque Rose Reading Room, where a sea of research tables fill every morning with writers, students and leisure readers. Also of note, the Library has a stellar list of weekly programs, readings and events.


Museum of Modern Art

Opened in 1929, the influential collection fills six floors in the heart of Midtown, and is home to iconic works from artists including Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, Jasper Johns and Pablo Picasso. It also claims one of the most tranquil courtyards in all of NYC. Community education through classes, workshops and lectures remains a cornerstone of the institution’s mission.


Chambers Hotel

Just south of Central Park lies this modern 15-floor retreat. Chambers' 72 rooms resemble individual lofts rather than cookie cutter accommodations. Partially responsible are the 500 works of original art commissioned by the hotel and hung throughout. Private balcony views and Japanese soaking tubs in the giant terrace suite might have one reconsidering ever straying too far. Thankfully, Ma Peche is in the lobby.
