Finally, a reasonably healthy fast food burger restaurant on the UWS! Until a couple years ago, we only had McDonald's. When you walk into Shake Shack, you feel better because you're aware of their eco-friendly marketing campaign. The burgers are 100% All Natural Angus Beef. No Hormones and no antibiotics, ever. The burgers are served on tasty brioche buns and while they're significantly smaller than other restaurant burgers, that's ok. You don't feel too full when you're finished eating. The menu us quite basic: Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Mushroomburger and the Shack Burger. You can also throw in a Flat Top Dog and an order of fries (which aren't the pencil-thin fast food fries) but rather crinkle fries. If you're feeling especially adventurous, there is an overwelming selection of shakes and concretes (i was never able to understand the different). But, beware of very long lines. At lunchtime, the lines are wrapped around a city block. While they do move quickly (and you'll get your fancy vibrating buzzer so you can wait outside), if you're hungry, you will have to wait. And, chances are, you won't get a seat.
Benihana is our family favorite! We've gone to this restaurant for my children's birthday every single year for the past 6 years! Even when my daughter turned 10 she wanted her dinner at Benihana. The food is definitely secondary to the experience. My kids love watching the food cooked on the stove at the table. They get a kick out of watching the chefs play around with the food. Whether it's creating a beating heart out of the brown rice or watching the onion colcanoes spew smoke, these tricks never seem to get old. Thank god they recently renovated the midtown Manhattan location. It was a bit dingy and dirty prior but, now feels more spacious and clean. Be prepared to overeat and to smell like the food for the next few days. While the menu is extremely basic (chicken, meat, rice, shrimp, veggies) and you might gasp at the amount of lard/butter used for cooking, you'll have a very memorable night out. This is a family-friendly establishment that's often crowded with birthday parties so make reservations at least one month ahead.
A great place for those who want to enjoy a delicious food. It is not cheap, but the food and service you receive are top-notch. Sake "Born" is my favorite ;) Bar sits are the best: you get your order slightly faster, you see a chef preparing your dishes, and, if there are many dishes you have never eaten before, you can observe people around you and order something you spotted on your neighbor's plate ;). If you feel tired and want to freshen-up, just ask a chef to prepare a refreshing dish for you... It is that simple. If you do not clearly remember the proper chopsticks etiquette, make sure you google it before visiting the restaurant. (Just imagine yourself going to Arpège and not knowing which one of the three forks to choose to eat your favorite Savarins). P.S.: IMPORTANT! This is one of only two Sushi restaurants in NYC where I eat raw fish without worrying about catching parasites or having an upset stomach.
