LUNCH IN MIDTOWN NYC

PERSHING SQUARE is the only place to enjoy a delicious, best lunch in NYC.  Our classic bistro menus are always evolving, where guests can enjoy simple and shareable dishes meant to complement and elevate an extensive and ever-changing wine list.

Our restaurant, near Grand Central is busy, very busy.  We have been the most popular lunch place for local fans, business meetings & visitors from around the world.

Best Lunch in NYC

The menu, prepared by Chef Filiberto Jimenez is straightforward and wonderful.  Our classic chicken pot pie and Shrimpscargots are cult classics, and our newer additions for vegetarians, vegans and gluten allergies have taken off like a shot.

When you are in the mood for a chill lunch, great cocktail bar and a great chicken panini, veggie burger or sensational, seasonal salads – we think you will love Pershing Square.

An overnight sensation a few decades ago, our restaurant still is one of NY’s best restaurants and maintains a reputation as the nicest place to sit and chill.
