Take a Tour of Restaurant Row

February 2023

New York City is one of the world’s most celebrated capitals of culinary excellence. From mom-and-pop gems frequented by locals in the know to world-renowned, multiple-Michelin-starred restaurants, the city has it all. Residents of the Midtown West rentals at 555TEN are fortunate to have Restaurant Row just around the corner, located on 46th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. As its name suggests, this strip is replete with dining destinations, ideal for a stop before or after taking in a new Broadway show or for simply enjoying an evening out on the town.

From high-end sushi to favorite Broadway haunts, Restaurant Row has some of the city’s best options for delectable meals and distinctively New York City ambiance.

Barbetta, which is celebrating its 116th year, can boast the titles of the oldest restaurant in the Theatre District and the oldest Italian restaurant in New York. It’s also the oldest New York City restaurant still owned by its founding family, the Maioglios. Superlatives aside, this landmarked restaurant serves Piedmont cuisine from Italy’s northwestern region, including agnolotti and slow-roasted rabbit and polenta, in addition to its sweeping selection of Italian wines. Couple that with lush decor, including an 18-century Piedmontese chandelier in the elegant main dining room, along with private dining rooms and a garden patio.

Joe Allen is known as the perennial hot spot for Broadway insiders. Indeed, this Theater District mainstay has been featured in Hollywood films and is famously lined with posters of Broadway flops, including the show Kelly, whose cast first gifted the namesake restaurateur Joe Allen a poster of the one-performance show. Of course, Joe Allen is known for more than its theater-rich history, including classic American dining fare such as its Joe Allen burger, steak frites, and famous banana cream pie.

Finally, Sushi Seki has made a name for itself among the city’s high-end sushi restaurants, thanks to its sake sommeliers and fine cuts of fresh seafood. Sushi Seki’s special signature pieces include spicy scallop hand rolls, tuna with tofu sauce, red snapper with sea salt, and seared O-toro, among many more. But diners will likely find a satisfying meal choosing among any of the sushi pieces or hand rolls, paired with sake or wine to complete the meal.

With a wealth of options for fine dining along Restaurant Row, residents of the Midtown luxury rentals at 555TEN can dine out in style each night of the week. Contact the sales team to learn more.
