Meet Me In Midtown? This Glam Brasserie Is THE New Power Spot

by Guest of A Guest · January 13, 2023

    When it comes to New York neighborhoods, I think we can all agree that Midtown has historically served as Manhattan's version of a fly-over state...

    But such is the case no more!

    Tucked between Park and Madison on 50th Street, new hot spot Monterey is the perfect mixture of downtown cool and uptown class. 

    Business breakfasts, post-shopping lunches, see-and-be-seen dinners - the retro-chic bi-level American Brasserie is the new power place, with its stunning Art Deco-inspired design and pitch perfect penchant for glamour.

    Cozy up in one of their plush velvet booths and prepare to indulge. Instruct your server on precisely how you'd like your sip straight up with their Martini Cart, tear into their Comte and Onion Bread, a modern twist on the classic Jewish onion roll that is NOT to be missed, strategize with your seat mates over who will get the Porcini Lasagna - which comes absolutely drenched in truffles - the Fried Lobster, the Montauk Tilefish, and the pièce-de-résistance, the Prime Rib, carved to your liking table-side.

    Extra points of course for those who manage to fit in a Seafood Plateau and a slice of their Cloud Cake!

    So, see you there?
