We did not want to stand in line at the Carnegie, that is going out if business in January of 2017. Service was quite attentive. We had the corned beef and the pastrami sandwiches. At $21 each, it was a little disappointing. Not anything like the sandwiches across the street and I think they are more expensive. Stage door is... More

We spotted Benash as the queue for Carnegie was stretching down the street and decided to try it. Waiter was lovely and very attentive., although this is another restaurant that will automatically add the gratuity to the bill. We had hotdogs and fries which were nice. No extra pickles on the side as you would at the other 2 Jewish... More

We tried some of the most popular TripAdvisor locations nearby and all were full so as we were hungry ended up in the Benash. Service was prompt, food was OK - Eggs and Bacon for me Croque Madame for the wife - plus juice and coffee Total bill was $55 so not overly expensive compared to everywhere nearby. Food was... More

Just dreadful, nipped in for a cocktail as it was advertised as great cocktails outside. What a joke, overpriced and waitress standing next to us waiting for money, even tried to take the bill money before we had put it all on the table. Would not recommend - see photo of their so called cocktails!

After waiting an eternity for the food which was clearly microwaved and prepped days previous we were Charges almost one hundred dollars and told we must pay 20% service ? I thought service tip was for GOOD SERVICE. The guys were rude,... More

The line was too long for Carnagie Deli, so we popped in here for a bite...pastrami was delicious, tomato soup was a little sweet, but tasty, I thought the knishes were a bit heavy, but my husband & friends liked it; cheesecake was delicious; prices were so-so... Overall, a nice place to stop, and I would come back.

Visited after an evening performance at Carnegie Hall. It's corner location and neon signs draw attention to the restaurant. They have a sign indicating World Famous Cheesecake so I thought this would be a good place to try NY cheesecake in NYC. The restaurant was not very busy. I was seated pretty quickly and my order was taken quickly but... More

Had breakfast at Carnegie deli -- so when late supper rolled around and that restaurant still had a queue we decided to try Benash across the street. We were hungry and I had not read the reviews on TripAdvisor, so was pretty unbiased. It's hard to be unbiased when you read negative reviews. As a rule I like to see... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
