Good chow near 57th and Lexington?

TorontoJo | May 29, 2009 06:06 PM

Hi New York hounds!

I've been and will continue to be traveling regularly to Manhattan and am working near and staying at 57th and Lexington. I usually don't mind traveling for great food, but there are some evenings when I'm just so tired from a long day with the client, that I really, really just want something within a block or two of my hotel. The area feels like a bit of a wasteland of shopping and no eats, but I'm sure (I hope!) I'm missing out. I'm good for all price points, cuisines and atmospheres (if anyone recommends the TGI Friday, I will cry, though). I know that Le Colonial is right there, though I haven't popped in yet. My hotel is right next to the Palace restaurant -- any reports on that? I do love me a good diner.

I'm happy with carry out or eat in. I have no problems eating by myself in high- or low-end restaurants.

I did find this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/517467

But any other recommendations would be appreciated and assiduously checked out.

Thanks in advance from a hungry Canadian hound. (BTW, I had the most fabulous dinner at Sakagura a couple of weeks ago. I'm so jealous of the food options in your city. No izakaya in Toronto, sadly.)
