Times Square Travel Guide

Fine Dining in the Big Apple

1) DB Bistro Moderne

Daniel Boulud has done it again with DB Bistro Moderne. From its over-the-top foie-gras, short-rib and truffle DB Burger to its escargot fricassée and crispy duck confit, DB Bistro Moderne is fine dining with a casual twist. Stop by for a weekday breakfast or weekend brunch, or take in an amazing dinner with refined yet rustic flair.

2) Lambs Club

The Lambs Club has all the exclusive atmosphere of the elite clubs of yore and all the delicious delicacies of a contemporary French bistro. Relax in its darkly paneled room and bask in the warmth of the medieval-size fireplace while enjoying an original cocktail or exclusive glass of wine from the premium list. Executive chef Geoffrey Zakarian delivers old-fashioned gourmet meals including the notable grilled octopus, roast lamb, lobster roll and cod cheek dishes.

3) Hunt and Fish Club

Go to Hunt and Fish Club for the ambiance, and stay for the food. This decidedly lavish restaurant stuns with a 40-by-20-foot chrome chandelier gracing the main dining room and over 55,000 pounds of marble lining the walls, floors and bars. The $5 million brainchild of founders restaurateur Eytan Sugarman, financier Nelson Braff, and hedge fund maven Anthony Scaramucci, Hunt and Fish Club is exclusivity at its best. Executive Chef Jeff Kreisel serves up timeless dishes like steaks and lobsters alongside more novelty meals like a tuna tartare with caramelized pineapple, avocado mousse and crisp potato.

3) Aureole

Aureole is an oasis of calm in bustling Times Square. The newest Charlie Palmer flagship restaurant, Aureole stuns with New American fare presented like modern art by a fabulous staff. Enjoy menu favorites like the sweet corn soup, tuna Wellington, or chocolate torte while relaxing under the twirling chandelier or luxurious twig and flower arrangements. Two Michelin star chef Christopher Lee won’t disappoint with classical gourmet ingredients showcased with modern plating.
