Geoffrey Zakarian’s clubby gem is a throwback to New York’s fine-dining heyday—a place built for conversation and a languid meal. While chefs around town focus on being seasonally nimble, the veteran toque labors hard to create signature dishes, working and reworking until each one’s a keeper. Timeless expense-account fare includes lushly marbled foie gras torchon served with pureed quince and Concord grape jam, and a supple pine-nut–encrusted lamb saddle cooked optimally pink from end to end. While homey sweets—like hard-as-rocks butter-pecan profiteroles—were less enticing, Sasha Petraske’s serious cocktails (including one of the city’s best White Russians) offer an inspired end to a meal. Sip on your drink while listening to live jazz in the mezzanine bar on Wednesday evenings or at Sunday brunch.

Talk about impressive. Geoffrey Zakarian has really outdone himself at The Chatwal hotel.

A colleague recommended the lambs club, close to the office and non touristy for Times Square. Impressive on arrival with a lovely roaring open fire and red leather. The food was very good although the staff we a little strange and not that attentive given the restaurant wasn't that busy given it was a Tuesday evening. Great food, nice plush decor but service wasn't top notch

Good business lunch locations near the Theater District aren't in abundant supply, but The Lambs Club is just that. The dining room is classy and styled neatly, giving it a throwback feel. The vast menu gives plenty of choices for lunch. I opted for the crab cake, which had a surprising but welcomed spicy kick. My lunchmates decided on the famed Lambs Club burger and had no complaints. I'll be keeping this spot in mind for future business lunches for it's classy but casual style.

A much welcome brunch option in a sea of mediocre options near Times Square. Instead come enjoy cuisine by Geoffrey Zakarian in the lobby of the classy Chatwal hotel. It's a classy yet casual spot to take parents or when you're still trying to impress your date. Burgers and bacon are to die for. Did we mention jazz and a hot chocolate bar? Oh and a lobster Bloody Mary! Yeah...
