Conveniently located at the heart of Manhattan, Midtown East boasts of a vibrant cultural scene with NYC’s best attractions and amenities mere steps from one’s front door.
The Midtown East Neighborhood
From easy access to world-renowned shopping at Fifth Avenue to joining the crowds at Rockefeller Center, Midtown East offers endless, picture-perfect NYC moments. It’s no wonder why most New Yorkers and transplants choose to live here – the mix of newly developed luxury high-rises, prestigious co-ops, and more affordable walk-up rentals provide plenty of housing options in this vibrant and bustling neighborhood.
Whether going on a business lunch, romantic date, or happy hour, Midtown East offers an exciting roster of dining options that will satisfy any palate.
Two Michelin-starred and New York Times three-starred Aquavit serves seasonal Nordic cuisine in a refined restaurant setting. They offer two tasting menus nightly in their dining room: a 5-course tasting menu and a chef's tasting menu with dishes such as trout roe beef and scallop and leek halibut. A smorgasbord for two will include three types of herring, gravlax, shrimp skagen, cheese & potatoes, and crisp bread.
A historical gem, La Grenouille has been serving iconic haute French fare such as sole grillée, (grilled Dover sole) and oxtail braisé au vin de Bourgogne (oxtail braised in red burgundy wine) since 1962. Its fancy Gallic dishes, gracious service, and legendary floral arrangements have made La Grenouille a Midtown institution.
A cocktail bar on Beekman Tower’s rooftop, Ophelia has a wraparound patio offering stunning views of Midtown and the East River while diners sip on some of the city’s best-tasting cocktails. One will certainly enjoy Ophelia’s Ascension (bourbon with smoked Jamaican pepper, Sri Lanka palm sugar, and cedar smoke) paired with upscale bar fare like steak tartare and hamachi crudo.
Midtown East: Do and See
Being in the middle of iconic buildings, museums, and shops, Midtown East’s locals and visitors will never run out of things to see and do.
Midtown East’s nexus is Grand Central Station –one of the city’s most historic landmarks that sees over 750,000 people on a daily basis. It’s not only the world’s largest train station, but it is also a shopping and dining hotspot. Grand Central Market and restaurants like the Grand Central Oyster Bar are other reasons to visit the terminal.
One of the city’s most beloved museums, the Museum of Modern Art spans six floors of exhibits with almost 200,000 works from over 10,000 artists. Collections include an impressive array of paintings, sculptures, and films, with masterpieces from the likes of Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, and Vincent Van Goh.
For upscale shopping, one can head over to Madison and Fifth Avenues to find luxury stores and retail giants, including Saks Fifth Avenue. In addition to offering great high-end goods, Saks showcases fantastic Christmas displays every holiday season.
Rockefeller Center’s three-story observation deck offers some of the best views of NYC’s skyline. Locals and visitors alike can also enjoy the many outdoor dining options during the summer, or the iconic ice-skating rink and grandiose Christmas tree in the winter.
