Yes, it's a national chain, but Hillstone Manhattan (formerly Houston's) turns out a mean burger. The house-made veggie variety—a mix of beets, brown rice and black beans—is especially good.

Consistent service and quality, a well-rounded menu and an inviting atmosphere. Better to book ahead, have experienced hour plus wait times at peak service. Experience is marked by team-coordinated service, reliable menu staples (to me their burger = comfort food), and a relaxed environment with a private feel. The chain consistently delivers, and all of its locations feel welcoming. The Park Avenue location has a bar upfront, and a corridor set-up as the main dining room. There's a large horse statue, and pleasant mood lighting. Check it out, this place is a go-to.

Looking for a fantastic steak, burger, or salad? Then head to Hillstone in Midtown. This place never fails to deliver hearty portions of fantastic food. Start with the warm artichoke and spinach dip served with tortilla chips, salsa, and sour cream. If you are a steak lover, go for the USDA prime center cut filet cooked to your liking, and served with whipped potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Vegetarians make sure to get your hands on the house made veggie burger, made up of brown rice, black beans, and beets. This truly is the veggie burger to compare all others to.
