I’ve often enjoyed Pershing Square Café’s wonderful breakfast specials and especially their legendary pancakes. After enjoying an early evening of swinging jazz across town at Birdland Jazz Club, I walked east from 8th Ave through Times Square on 42nd Street, past Bryant Park and Grand Central towards peaceful Tudor City. Nestled next to Grand Central where Park Avenue intersects 42nd Street is the Pershing Square Café. Tonight, it looked like the perfect quiet place for a post-jazz bite.
Here are some photos of the interior. I chose a cozy booth to relax a bit.
It was a little late for a big meal but friends encouraged me to try the Chicken Pot Pie. It worked well with the Mediterranean salad as I strayed away from tonight’s specials.
The meal was fresh and delicious and the Chicken Pot Pie exceeded expectations! The seating was comfortable and the staff was attentive and polite. I’ll be back soon!
