When it comes to food and drink, Murray Hill has the best of both worlds in terms of location: far enough from the tourist attractions of Times Square, but close enough to Midtown to warrant an array of dining options. Chic gastro pubs, no-frills bars, and comfy brunch spots within the neighborhood offer no shortage of dishes to try and cocktails to drink.

True, Murray Hill is not known for glitzy dining experiences embraced by some other neighborhoods, but what you will find for dining options are excellent. Whatever you’re craving you’ll find it in Murray Hill, whether it’s a sandwich from Sarge’s, sushi from Kokage, barbeque from Blue Smoke, or anything in between.

There’s plenty to choose from when it comes to nightlife too. The area abounds with sports pubs and cozy watering holes, like Ted’s Corner Tavern, as well as places to order bespoke cocktails and sip delectable wines, like Middle Branch or Vanguard Wine Bar. Hoping for a view too? You’re in luck.

The National Bar & Dining Rooms

The National Bar & Dining Rooms is located around the corner from the Fifty Hotel & Suites. Here, find modern takes on classic American and European bistro staples turned out by celebrity chef and hotel impresario Geoffrey Zakarian. Ask for the Ugly Burger and we recommend loading your patty up with bacon and fried egg. Oh, and the space—trimmed with marble tables, a zinc bar, and a bronze staircase—is nothing short of elegant perfection. Additionally, hotel guests receive a 10% discount.

I Trulli

Start with antipasti like mussels in white wine or baby calzones before diving into grilled whole fish or a roasted rabbit.
