By all of your complaints about the other asshole drivers I can't quite picture this.

There are some residential areas towards both rivers, but I get the very distinct impression that it's only old people who bought their places like 40 years ago and haven't let go.

Yeah the bars are filled with bros who take their lady's to "the city" from New Jersey, but don't want to travel far from Penn Station to drink.

there's starting to be more pockets near Lex and GC. The National is solid, and has kind of become a pre-dinner cocktail spot for Manton and I, and for cheap eats there's a Rickshaw dumpling storefront and a Num Pang. Those are all quite new. Katsuhama is great, too. Problem is these places are all a bit of a walk unless you work right near Grand Central.

There is the other 10 miles where I drive through the city. That part sucks.

I was just thinking of the National. Pretty good spot to have in Midtown. Food is pretty good, if pricey, and decent wine list for what it is. Haven't tried the cocktails, but will have to give them a try sometime.

It wouldn't raise eyebrows south of 14th street, but for Midtown it's great, and a welcome addition. I know I'll be pushing for it next time I'm taking a client out or for a team dinner.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that it makes Midtown a destination dining location though.

And yeah, the bar scene is just plain weird. It, like just about everything else in Midtown, is geared towards office workers (grabbing an after work drink with colleagues or waiting on a train) or tourists.

it's because of this thread that I made a trek in cold and wind down to Num Pang for a sandwich.

if it wasn't so far, I would eat there every single day.

Just please, for the love of god, do not post trashy pictures of half eaten sandwiches. (10)

I'd be down. Certainly not every day though. I enjoy my once a day routine.
