The stretch of 57th Street that spans Midtown West from Tiffany's to the Hearst Tower has long had its notable icons: Carnegie Hall, the Russian Tea Room, and Lee's Art Shop. In October of 2013, another pedigreed name joined the crop: Kingside, a joint venture from chef Marc Murphy and the Gerber Group, located on the ground level of the Viceroy New York hotel. A golden glow emanates from the enormous windows up front, and light bounces off gleaming white tile and wood paneling onto the faces of drinkers at the bar. Whether you’re coming for a business lunch, after-work drinks, or a quick pre-theater bite, the vibe is unfailingly slick. The New American menu feels bistro without crossing the continental line; Murphy drew from his "French heritage, Italian roots, American schooling, and his love of travel" to put together dishes like the tender pork shank braised in beer, which tastes pleasingly of its bath of jus, shallots, and escarole. At lunch, the sandwiches, especially the maple bacon, avocado, and roasted tomato on rye, are your best options. Desserts are served all day (bold are the souls who desire a hot-fudge sundae at 11 a.m.), and include frozen treats from Il Laboratorio del Gelato.
