It isn’t easy being hungry in Midtown. So it’s good to know about a place like Parker & Quinn. You aren’t going to go out of your way to come eat here, but if you need to grab breakfast with someone before you head into the office, it’s about 98% less depressing than Panera. Or grab some dinner here with a coworker. This is the restaurant in the bottom of the Refinery Hotel, and the menu has stuff for everyone. Smoothies, pasta, steak, salads - you’ll find something to make you a less hungry and more pleasant person.
