New York Central is in the Grand Hyatt. Like many hotel restaurants, it is overpriced. Service was friendly, but not especially attentive. The food is good, not great: This is a decent dinner choice on nights when the weather is lousy and you do not...More

The cocktail and drink component was good albeit expensive. My interaction with the wait staff was pleasant and they are working hard to get it right. The few menu items we ordered on a couple of occasions were mediocre at best.

Had lunch at this restaurant in the Grand Hyatt. It is a glass-enclosed place overlooking 42nd Street. Has limited menu and can be expensive - but it is worth the trip. Had the soup/sandwich special - beef lentil and a turkey BLT on grain bread.
