Its proximity to Grand Central Station gives Pershing Square a feeling of travel, movement and buzzy Midtown energy. This vibe is underscored by an interior that evokes a train’s dining car with tiny lamps on each table and riveted girders lining the ceiling. Despite fare hikes on standard morning offerings, it’s a bustling breakfast hub, and its location and lack of pretension make it a prime spot for business lunches and post-work cocktails with snacks like sizzling “shrimpscargots.” The main courses are accessible and solid, with easy crowd-pleasers like the carefully crafted roast turkey Cobb salad, buttery lobster roll with homemade potato chips, and flaky-crusted chicken potpie.
