Faces & Names has caricatured paintings of celebrities on the walls and it’s a few blocks from Times Square, but it’s actually pretty low-key and is one of the best spots to get casual drinks in the mid-50’s. Up front there’s a square bar and some two-tops, while the back area has another bar along with lounge chairs and booths around a fireplace. You can come solo for a beer after work, or hang with a big group before a show.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill
Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This place is, however, insanely expensive.
Glaze Teriyaki Grill
Glaze Teriyaki is a reliable and seemingly somewhat healthy option for cheap Midtown lunch. Midtown could use more of those.
Four years after our first review, Danji is still the restaurant we recommend most in the Midtown/Times Square area.

The Shakespeare @ The William
If you’re looking for an English pub in Midtown, The Shakespeare is quite possibly the nicest. Stop by for happy hour.
Hudson Malone is a rare Midtown East pub where you can eat good food and watch sports on TV at the very same time.
Bill's Bar & Burger
We had hoped that instead of conforming to Midtown, Bill’s Bar and Burger would make Midtown conform to it. It did not.
