P.J. Clarke’s in New York City has stood on the northeast corner of 55th Street for

approximately one hundred and twenty years and even with the changes in the neighborhood still maintains good comforting food. The best hamburger in town.

Review by Neil Peters

Although any of Danny Meyer's restaurants from The Modern to Maialino offers superb cuisine my very favorite is the Union Square Cafe. Since I have experienced dining at the Union Square for approximately 25 years and have consistently had a delicious meal they have proven to be one of the best. Also, Danny has transformed the Union Square neighborhood into a thriving secure area. Not only are his fine dining establishments special but the ever-popular Shake Shack offers delicious burgers and "Concretes" at good prices. 






As exemplars of elegance and refinement, and keeping within your budget the Restaurant on the seventh floor of Bergdorf Goodman is uncompromising in its pursuit of excellence. With a Bird’s Eye view of Central Park and a choice menu Arts & Leisure News Service adds their name to the multitude of accolades for this distinctive Restaurant in New York City at 754 Fifth Avenue on the Plaza.

The Restaurant in Bergdorf Goodman is a modern interpretation of the aristocratic social salon. Like a Park Avenue residence from the age of cosmopolitan glamour. Well-appointed and bright, the drawing room atmosphere is an intimate conversational setting for lunch, tea and early supper or cocktails. The light and sparkling menu is a modern take on classic New York fare.

Located inside Bergdorf's on the 7th floor overlooking the Park, what a view!  The place is decorated in a modern New York City art deco style. Gorgeous.  We were greeted and seated within seconds.  The staff was extraordinarily  friendly.

I started with a LOBSTER BISQUE. Then I had the ASIAN CRAB CAKE SALAD with figs, radicchio, asian pears, snow peas, with a tarragon-poppy seed dressing.  They were the best crab cakes that I ever tasted. It was prepard and seasoned to perfection. There were plenty of choices.

I finished with a dessert and cappuccino. The Creme Brulee was delicious with fresh raspberries inside as well as atop the dessert. It was tastefully presented. The Brownie a la Mode was also attractively presented in the way the brownie pieces were cut and arranged. The ice cream scoops on top included a caramel topping which made it super delicious.

The Restaurant offers ingenious creations that meet the highest culinary standards. The fish and seafood are of excellent quality; as well as the meat, poultry vegetables and fruits are all well worth my recommendation.
