I had a leisurely lunch here with a longtime friend. The atmosphere is airy and bright overlooking 42nd street. The expansiveness of the restaurant and the fact that tables are not on top of ease other allows for relaxing and private conversation. Since we knew our plans were for a long lunch, we ordered entrees which were good, but seemed... More

The cocktail and drink component was good albeit expensive. My interaction with the wait staff was pleasant and they are working hard to get it right. The few menu items we ordered on a couple of occasions were mediocre at best.

Had the pleasure of staying at the Grand Hyatt the last 2 days, and grabbed a nice, quiet dinner for one at New York Central. Great view for people watching on 42nd Street. Conrad, my waiter, was a total pro and suggested the fish of the day which was grilled to perfection. They are flexible enough to allow swapping out... More

I stayed at the Grand Hyatt and ate at several locations before having breakfast here prior to departure from NYC. The service was excellent. My companion had the salmon benedict and I had the traditional bacon, eggs, and coffee. Everything was very fresh and my coffee was superb quality. The total for these two breakfasts was $79 which was expected... More

A varied brunch menu, including lobster eggs benedict, is available in modern, comfortable surroundings with only light music in the background. What a relief to be able to converse without shouting.

Had lunch at this restaurant in the Grand Hyatt. It is a glass-enclosed place overlooking 42nd Street. Has limited menu and can be expensive - but it is worth the trip. Had the soup/sandwich special - beef lentil and a turkey BLT on grain bread.

Since I've eaten at various Hyatt's many times, I expect good food and good service and was not disappointed. Breakfast was excellent, service was friendly, tables are well-spaced here, and even though the restaurant is just off the busy lobby, the restaurant was quiet. I would recommend this spot for any time of the day.

The New York Central is a modern glass and stainless bar and restaurant in the Grand Hyatt Hotel. As one might expect in a large hotel, it is busy and noisy. However, it is also convenient, especially if you are waiting for a meeting with colleagues staying in the hotel. The service was responsive and courteous. The prices what you... More

That's what my 12-year-old said when he's finished his meal. The portions were plenty big he just loved his steak so much he was sad when it was gone! At first I was worried that the menu was a bit unusual and extravagant for their taste. But on closer inspection and consultation with the very knowledgeable waiter, we found several... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
