Osteria Laguna is a solid, crowd-pleasing option within walking distance of Grand Central. You'll find pastas, pretty good thin-crust pizzas, and very rich polenta that's so cheesy it almost tastes like queso fundido - but also a space big enough to fit your entire extended family (including everyone’s SOs). If your group just includes you, a speck pizza, polenta with meatballs, and a glass of red wine, that’s cool too - you probably won’t be the only one in that situation.

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.
We typically love ourselves some Michael White. Though his new hotel restaurant Ai Fiori is a sprawling space with more room than they know what to do with. Set inside The Setai, this is a bit of a cookie cutter hotel restaurant - one that isn’t bad, but just isn’t quite our style.
