  • Around the GC:

    I love to eat in Cafe China on 37th street. They have amazing Chinese food and lunch menu. Xian Famous Foods around the corner is also great and affordable.

    Franchia on Park avenue between 34 and 35 has delicious Asian vegan foods and a nice ambiance.

    The best capuccino around is at Piccolo cafe on Madison Avenue.

    If the weather is nice, enjoy drinks in one of the many rooftops in the area: Cloud social on 32nd street or Monarch on 35th and 6th Ave, for example.
