Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

At this sprawling brasserie in the MetLife Building at Grand Central Terminal, looks matter. The ceiling is just as elegant as the marble floor, with flashes of gold amongst earthy tones. Pops of red can be seen from the line of umbrellas shading the outdoor seating. In the centre you'll see the curved, glass-enclosed kitchen, where the chefs concoct the French/Mediterranean menu.

Nods to Italy include chicken Milanese, with baby arugula and aged parmesan, while the Middle East gets a look-in on the desserts menu with sweet kanafeh pastry. The meaty crab cakes are popular, as are the butter topped filet mignon and seafood platters. For a more casual meal or drinks, hop over to the moodier adjoining Beer Bar or La Fonda Del Sol tapas bar.
