I’ve been passing in front of this restaurant for years considering it as a destination for tourists without feeling like walking in; its red lights, fresh vibes and catching neons made me change my mind, and I’m happy I did so. 4,1/5 on google maps, I stopped for lunch.


A vast space has been open from the last century welcoming guests from the early hours of the morning. Benches, sofas, individual booths, tables and leather chairs, the restaurant looks like a French brasserie with American Influences. It was only twelve, noontime and the place was already full.


I loved the decor: metal and red leather, the place has been created to look like a train station. Frenchy and stylish while keeping it classy and simple, what makes it vibrant is the music and people talking; it is loud, pleasantly loud.

I wish I could have ordered everything because the menu is appealing: turkey sandwich, turkey burger, hamburger, mac and cheese, pasta, nitrata, fish and chips and much more. 

Cherry tomatoes, yellow and red, cut in half and served with a creamy burrata on a bed of balsamic vinegar. Sprinkles with pepper, the flavors are intense and appealing. I enjoyed hr freshness of the tomatoes, the acidity of the balsamic and the quality of the mozzarella cheese.


Layers of turkey breast stuffed in a sandwich with avocado, tomatoes, and lettuce, served with chips and jam. A simple and delicious sandwich I finished entirely. Juicy turkey, tender bread and ripe avocado with crisp vegetables. The fries are fried with their skin, unpeeled making them crunchier.


Fish and chips, with a side of tartar sauce. Five chunks of fish, grab it with your fingers and dig in the tartar sauce. A crunchy envelope with a moist heart, the fish chunks taste real and fresh fish; salty tartar adds the needed kick. I was happy to have lunch at Pershing Square. 


Mac and cheese, simply pasta cooked al dente with ages aromatic cheese. As good as it should be; I would call it comfort food!

End this culinary journey with a dessert; a creamy carrot cake and a loaded pale pie. Pershing Square has a handful of sweets from which I remember the Malbec wine ice cream and whiskey pie; I’ll make sure to order them next time.


Good food, good mood; it’s not a restaurant for tourists, it’s a place I’ll recommend to my friends visiting New York.
