Like others, my wife and I wanted to hit Carnegie's for lunch, but of course, too crowded. So we just walked across the street. Yes, the prices are pretty high, but I had a hot corned beef that was excellent and the same for the chicken salad my wife had. Since there was tons on each sandwich, half got saved for the ride home. Cheesecake was wonderful. So I'm not sure what everyone else was talking about, but our experience was definately worth it. And this of course during holiday season in NYC.

My wife and I had a great 4 day break to NYC, staying at The Wellington, just across the street from Ben Ash, where we ventured for an evening meal. Oh dear! The service was mediocre, to say the least. Undeterred (and my feeling about the place began to unfold), we ordered a Greek salad, with chicken for myself and the same for my wife but with prawns rather than chicken.What's this on my plate? The salad (lettuce in abundance, tomato, feta cheese, olives and pieces of chicken) was served on a plate completely shredded. Yes, shredded, as if put through a paper shredder. Unappetising at first glance and tasteless on first tasting. My wife's prawns were mashed up and served on the top of her shredded mush, with an ice cream scoop. Three scoops! No evidence of a prawn and not even in the taste. Everything was cold, to the point of over-refridgerated. Disappointing food and at $100 for the meal (including two small beers and a glass of house red), it was an expensive mistake. Moreover, the manager couldn't give a toss.

I went in and ordered a Ketel One and tonic. They brought me a yellowish drink. I tasted it--tasted like tonic but no carbonation whatsoever. They took it back and I had something else. I ordered pierogies. They came (4 pieces for $22) heaped with thick chopped barely cooked red onions rater than nicely sliced and browned onions you'd see anywhere else. The pierogies were utterly tasless. So I ordered a side of "sauteed mushrooms". What I got was a bowl of canned mushrooms in ome kid of gravy. Each time I needed the waiter, I had to flag him down at length.

I've lived in the neighborhood for four years and for some reason decided to try this place for breakfast. I can comfortably say this is the worst place in midtown.

We had been travelling for 3 weeks and on our last evening in NYC we chose it just because it was close to the hotel. Never ever again. Poor food and super expensive.
