For a quick sit-down meal, Katsu-Hama is one of your best options in the Grand Central area. It’s a little Japanese restaurant that specializes in pork katsu, with a bunch of different combinations available. You can get yours with a side of fried shrimp (highly recommended), or some excellent brown curry. Bring a friend after work, or stop by for an easy dinner before a Broadway show.

Sushi Seki Chelsea
