Amy's Bread

Restaurants Bakeries Hell's Kitchen

The hookup was bound to happen eventually: Beloved baker Amy Scherber has set up shop downtown right near Murray’s Cheese. It’s a dynamic duo if there ever was one. Scherber will offer her famous loaves—including that addictive raisin semolina—along with a full spread of breakfast pastries; grilled sandwiches, salads and soups for the lunch crowd, plus giant cookies and old-fashioned layer cakes.


Restaurants South Asian Hell's Kitchen

You’ll find fusion comfort foods—not all-day breakfast—at this “diner,” a stylish, exuberantly kitschy Hell’s Kitchen favorite. Though tender rings of fried calamari get a North African kick with harissa mayo, juicy fried chicken and waffles is straight-up American. If you’re feeling like Asian, sample the seared coriander crusted tuna with udon noodles, sauteed bean leaf and sweet soy garlic sauce.


5 Napkin Burger

Restaurants Hamburgers Hell's Kitchen

The best reason to visit this upscale Hell’s Kitchen diner is spelled out right there on the awning. The namesake burger, a delicious Franco-American handful, features sweet caramelized onions, Comté cheese and herb-infused aioli. Served with top-notch golden fries, it anchors the sprawling menu—an odd, rarely successful mash-up of big salads, overstuffed sushi rolls, pasta and barbecued ribs. Management didn’t edit, so you’ll have to—stick to the burger and to all-American desserts like the rich and generous caramel-brownie sundae.
