Restaurants Perfect For Corporate Cards

our suggestions

  1. Marea


    240 Central Park S, Columbus Circle, NY 10019

    Marea definitely needs some good Infatuation press…they haven’t gotten much love lately. Makes you wonder if people around these parts have even heard of it. I mean, it’s only been awarded Best New Restaurant in America by the James Beard Foundation. While we haven’t yet logged enough hours on the road to make that kind […]

  2. BLT Prime

    BLT Prime

    111 E 22nd St., Gramercy, NY 10010

    This is not your grandfather’s steakhouse. The crowd is buzzing with return customers, most of them young, lower Manhattan types wearing jeans and button downs who prefer BLT Prime’s modern take on the steakhouse to the more traditional spots uptown.

  3. Dovetail


    103 W 77th St., Upper West Side, NY 10024

    It’s rare that we actually venture up to the Upper West Side to eat out. Those treks north are usually reserved for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, chocolate chip cookies (we love Levain Bakery and Jacques Torres), and takeout essentials from Artie’s Delicatessen or Fairway. Thanks to Dovetail, there’s now another reason to make the trip.

  4. Bar Boulud

    Bar Boulud

    1900 Broadway #2, Upper West Side, NY 10023

    Bar Boulud is Daniel Boulud’s “casual bistro”, but by Infatuation standards this is a fancy restaurant. It’s an older crowd, but a seemingly loose one as the restaurant feels upbeat and lively. As for the food, you’ll find a long list of pates and terrines, but otherwise, it’s a pretty straightforward bistro.

  5. nobu


    105 Hudson St., Tribeca, NY 10013

    Some say Nobu is old news, but we say it’s still as good as Japanese food gets. Especially if someone else is paying.

  6. Keens

    Keens Steakhouse

    72 W. 36th Street, Midtown, NY 10018

    Keens is as Old New York as you can get. Open since 1885, this place is loaded with history. It’s pretty much the Museum of Natural Meat Eating History.

  7. Sushi of Gari 46th

    Sushi of Gari 46

    347 W. 46th St., Midtown, NY 10036

    Damn. We’ve been sleepin’ on Gari…hard. This is some of the finest fish in all of Manhattan. Their $50 Omakase is as visually stimulating as sushi can get. This isn’t just fish on top of rice – no, no. Each piece is prepared like its own entree – stacked, coated and finished with different ingredients. […]

  8. Sushi Yasuda

    Sushi Yasuda

    204 E. 43rd St., Midtown East, NY 10017

    There are three simple rules for having a mind-blowing eating experience at Sushi Yasuda: 1. Sit at the sushi counter. 2. Order the omakase. 3. Sit back and enjoy. If you want to complicate things and add a fourth rule, we’d recommend closing your eyes while you chew. You’ll look like an idiot, but you […]

  9. Da Umberto

    Da Umberto

    107 W. 17th St., Chelsea, NY 10011

    Old school Italian restaurants. This city is full of them, and everyone has a favorite. Except us, that is. For whatever reason, this sort of dining has never appealed to us for much more than something to do with your third cousins when they come to visit from wherever third cousins come from. I guess […]

  10. 15 East

    15 East

    15 E. 15th St., Union Square, NY 10003

    Bert and Ernie? Fergie and the weird looking dude from the Black Eyed Peas? That won’t work, Steinthal can’t run in heels. Sorry, just thinking of a few disguises for all the bank robberies we’re going to have to pull off to keep eating at 15 East. Maybe we’ll do the Hamburglar and Grimace. They’ll […]
