Came across this restaurant on our way from our hotel on 49th street to the Lincoln centre. We had a lovely pasta, wine and desert. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and prices are very reasonable. Would come back again.

We were still in time for 'breakfast' so we had various dishes and they were all really good. The omelettes and egg benedict were particularly good. The waitress was extremely nice and helpful, as well as very patient with our little one. The place looks completely different after being renovated (I used to live one block down almost 1yeara ago)... More

We had brunch on the last day of our trip here. It was a short walk from our hotel. We waited on a few minutes and we were sat. The staff were very friendly. The food was yummy and priced well. We had eggs benedict and omelets. Definitely will return if in the area again.

After several years I came back to the Morning Star. We went for dinner and the first surprise were the white table clothes and the second the over all renovation of the restaurant. It had been a plain diner before (which I liked,too), but now all looked new and welcoming to me. The menue offert a good choise of food... More

In the evening the Morning Star turns into a restaurant with white table clothes and large servings of tasty food. We had duck l'orange and lamb chops with baked potatoes and a large serving of lightly cooked spinach. The olive rolls were delicious. Sting's newest album 57th St. and 9th Ave. shows this resturant on the cover and he had... More

I love the place! Small and very friendly. I had eggs benedicts with salmon and it was AMAZING! The table took a little while to be ready for us, but the food compensates the waiting time. My husband had omelet with spinach and ham.

We were staying nearby at the Hudon Hotel & had breakfasts here on 3 of the 5 mornings. We tried a couple of places nearby but kept coming back to this one. Great choices on the menu & pleasant staff.

For breakfast, service slow and scrambled eggs were not really scrambled but omelet like. Real veggie omelet was quite good. Coffee not very good and toast buttered with a toothpick! Better places on 9th ave.

Came to Morning Star after finishing a 5 day conference in NYC. I've been traveling to NYC at least once or twice a year for the last 10 years for leisure or business and I've eaten in so many diners throughout. Morning Star is one of the best diners and places to eat. I had the Cypriot breakfast without the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
