District PRofile: Murray Hill

One of my most frequented areas of the city is Murray Hill. The neighborhood is part of lower midtown Manhattan located in the 20’s and 30’s on the east side. It’s populated mostly by young professionals (and many friends of mine) and boasts several must-try places to eat.

TO SEE: The view from Rare Bar & Grill. There’s a reason why it’s called “Rare View” Rooftop at Lexington. Also a great place to dine.

TO LUNCH:  Stop by  2nd Ave Deli  for New York’s favorite Kosher food. Pastrami sandwiches to die for.

TO BRUNCH: Penelope  is one of the top places to brunch in the city. The place is extremely small so be prepared for a long (well worth it) wait. Nutella french toast anyone?

TO DRINK: Banc Cafe is a popular bar and date spot great for dancing.

TO DESSERT: La Delice Pastry Shop is known for its rainbow cookies. Who can pass those up?

What’s your favorite spot Murray Hill?
