The Greater New York Dental Meeting is just around the corner, and we know that you don’t have time to research the hot spots – not the tourist traps (don’t get BBQ in Times Square), but the local favorites.
Fortunately for you, your pals at DentistryiQ.com have consulted real life New York City locals for their favorite places(see a map). Drs. Scott Froum, Chris Salierno and Marty Jablow have offered to share their favorite New York restaurants with us.
Don’t get caught paying too much for food that is subpar. You’re in NYC, for goodness’ sake – pay too much for food that is spectacular.
Dr. Scott’s Picks:
52 East 41st Street
From our expert:This is my personal favorite. It has a great ambiance. It’s in the Dylan Hotel, and it has great steaks and even better bar scene. 41st and Madison.
125 West 55th Street
From our expert:This is my personal favorite for seafood. It’s the freshest seafood in town. Great ambiance. Very exclusive. Bring your checkbook. 58th between 5th and 6th.
151 Mulberry Street
(In Manhattan’s Little Italy district)
From our expert:They have some of the best food in Little Italy – great pasta (and good fish and chips if you’re on a low-carb diet).
Dr. Chris’s Picks:
42 East 20th Street
From our expert:This is one of the best New York has to offer. Danny Meyer made his name with this place and it still delivers some of the best service around.
Dr. Marty’s Picks:
From our expert:This is a great Italian place that serves large portions family style. It can be difficult to get a reservation, but there are two locations: the original one on the Upper West Side and one in the Theater District.
147 West 43rd Street
From our expert:Another great Italian restaurant, similar to Carmines. The food is just as good and it’s easier to get a reservation. There are two locations: one in Times Square at the Casablanca Hotel and one on the Upper East Side.
105 Hudson Street
From our expert:Great Asian fusion restaurant. The Tribeca location (105 Hudson Street) is great for seeing celebrities. The two other locations have great food as well.
72 West 36 Street
From our expert:Keens was established over 100 years ago. Interesting clay pipe collection, featuring the pipes of many celebrities. Great steak.
More advice from Dr. Marty:Go to Little Italy and China Town. Get a bagel. Go to Junior’s for the cheesecake.
