Located on street level of Andaz 5th Avenue hotel at the corner of 5th Avenue and 41st Street, near Grand Central Station - evoking intimate entertaining spaces of New York’s pre-war apartment residences - is a flexible Midtown Manhattan restaurant where we serve delicious, simple food that changes with the time of year and is dictated only by what’s fresh and at the height of its season. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the shop is a favorite Manhattan restaurant any time of day. Our menus feature dishes made from some of the finest purveyors of fine foods in New York City.
But just as we do with our breakfast and dinner menus, we reach further out of the city to the farms and purveyors of New York State for field greens, wild arugula, heirloom tomatoes, chicken and pork that go into homey plates like Chicken Schnitzel and Greek Salad. Like any good lunch restaurant in Manhattan, you’ll find a daily Blue Plate Special on the menu with our spins on tradition using local ingredients (think spaghetti and meatballs with parmesan cheese). Wash it down with fresh house-made lemonade. For dinner, we coax the best flavors from farm fresh ingredients.
A little retail section off the dining room of our Manhattan restaurant is a fuss-free space to grab a coffee made with Cafe Grumpy coffee beans, a pastry or a sandwich made from just a few ingredients on hearty artisanal breads. In the evenings, the table transforms into a communal gathering place for a glass of wine at the end of the day.
