Buzzy New Midtown Restaurants

One of the best parts of living in NYC is being at the center of the world’s culinary universe. And with old-school standard go-tos and new, buzzy restaurants opening up at a rapid clip, Midtown West is becoming a hotter than hot spot for chefs and foodies from around the world. Lucky residents of the NYC luxury rentals at 555TEN have access to all of the latest fine spots that have just opened or are about to open in the neighborhood.

From a high-end French restaurant to a grab-and-go panini paradise, get ready to explore and feast on some of the most delicious food in the city.

Le Rock | 45 Rockefeller Plaza

Anyone familiar with the dining scene in Manhattan knows that Frenchette is a must-visit for those in the know. Now, the team behind that modern classic has opened Le Rock in the iconic Rockefeller Center. The New York Times notes that with Le Rock launching this past summer, there’s no reason to head to Tribeca to get a fully “Downtown” dining experience. With nods to the building’s art-deco inspo, Le Rock is a throwback experience with unparalleled service and world-class food. While the decor is gorgeous, it’s the menu of haute dishes that really stands out. Start with a plate of rich garlicky escargot, then take your time as you indulge in the expertly seasoned duck aux épices.

Lodi | 1 Rockefeller Plaza

Close to Le Rock in Rockefeller Center is an atmospheric and tiny place that transports you to the spirited streets of cosmopolitan Milan. This piccolo cafe is modeled after those in that Italian fashion capital. Located right across the street from Rockefeller Center’s iconic skating rink, this is a great place to start an early morning with an espresso and a pastry or grab an aperitivo before you head to a big dinner after work. And don’t forget to try a signature panini—you won’t be disappointed.

Pebble Bar | 67 West 49th Street

If you’ve ever looked at Rockefeller Center from across 6th Avenue, you may have noticed two incongruous townhouses on either side of the colossal building. These holdouts have been around for well over a century and a half. The second and third floor of one of these historic buildings was once known as Hurley’s, a bar where the likes of Johnny Carson and David Letterman had a post-show tipple or two. Now you can join in the grand tradition and have a sip yourself at Pebble Bar, which occupies the former space of Hurley’s. Whether you want a handcrafted cocktail on the second floor or some tasty bites, like steak tartare or oysters, on the third, the Pebble Bar is the newest place to see and be seen.

A New Theater/Restaurant Combination Brings Action and Flavor to Manhattan

A new, intimate theater and restaurant combo has opened in Manhattan West, mere blocks from the Midtown rentals at 555TEN. Dubbed the Midnight Theatre, this variety venue is already turning heads with its range of shows and the mouthwatering fare at its companion eatery, Hidden Leaf. Keep reading to learn more about this new destination in the heart of Manhattan.

The Midnight Theatre and Hidden Leaf are the brainchildren of creative director Warren Adcock, restaurateur Josh Cohen, and Cycle Projects, and the result is an immersive art deco-inspired theater replete with technology meant to bring the audience into contact with the performers. Projection mapping screens (with 270-degree coverage) surround the 160-seat audience area, while a diverse cocktail and five-course tasting menu delivers preshow tastes to pair with the entertainment, creating a sensory overload sure to leave audiences jonesing for more.

The lineup at the Midnight Theatre runs the gamut from comedy and magic to music and live podcast tapings, with more shows being added every day. Recurring events like the Midnight Theatre Soccer Club, where soccer enthusiasts can enjoy their favorite clubs facing off in style, and the Mingus Big Band Residency are sure to cultivate loyal fans, while the weekly stage magic showcase introduces new faces weekly.

The theater is far enough from Broadway to have its own identity while still being located close enough to the Theater District to take advantage of the area’s density of fine dining, though many audience members will likely choose to dine at Hidden Leaf, the venue’s sister eatery, where Executive Chef Chai Trivedi has concocted a menu that draws from many Asian influences. Open for lunch and dinner, Hidden Leaf offers dishes inspired by cuisine from locales as diverse as Vietnam, Myanmar, and Laos, as well cocktails by mixologist Iain Griffiths, whose new permanent home is behind the bar at Midnight Cafe, the venue’s street-level cocktail bar.

Together, the Midnight Theatre, Hidden Leaf, and Midnight Cafe represent a new way to spend the after-work cocktail hour with friends, grab a bite to eat, and settle in for a sidesplittingly funny night of entertainment. And, of course, residents of the nearby Midtown Manhattan apartments at 555TEN can swing by for lunch, thanks to the venue’s proximity. Check out the Midnight Theatre’s calendar to identify which shows you want to see. Then check out the available rentals at 555TEN and put this exciting venue just a few blocks from home.
