Pershing Square Café

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.

Saltbae Burger

Saltbae’s New York Burger consists of six ounces of tender Wagyu beef with lettuce, tomato, and onions. I opted out of the Pepper Jack cheese. With the burger came fabulous French fries. The quality of the beef, fries, and their respective seasonings were over the top delicious. I plan to return soon and sample other burger options. If you’re in the Gramercy Park area and crave a simple but delicious classic meal, you’ll want to try Saltbae.
