NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The National Restaurant NYC at The Benjamin recently opened as the latest project of famous television judge and Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. Designed by the Rockwell Group, The National New York is a fine dining destination that offers soups, sandwiches, appetizers and entrees with European and Asian spice influences.  

Why We Dine: The National Restaurant NYC is a grand cafe style bistro that doubles as a  great go-to eatery unlike any other in the Midtown East area. Convenient for guests of The Benjamin as well as tourists, business folk and locals, The National Restaurant NYC has something to offer everyone.

  • Best of Both Worlds: Located in between the bustling Grand Central business crowd and the residential Sutton Place neighborhoods, The National Restaurant NYC is the first real neighborhood eatery in Midtown East, accommodating varying clientele. 
  • Wide Selection: The location isn't the only thing combining varying forces; the menu at The National New York is varied as well. The modern bistro cuisine provides flavorful starters, quality sandwiches, fish, seafood, poultry and steak entrees, great for any occasion.

Inside Knowledge: Prior to The National NYC opening in October 2010, Chef Geoffrey Zakarian proudly tasted the entire menu in one day to make sure each dish was being perfectly prepared.

We Recommend:

  • Yellowtail Tartare With Barbecued Eel: A seafood-lover's dream; the fish tartare at The National Restaurant NYC is soft, savory and well-seasoned and the barbecued eel brings a contrasting sweetness that will have your taste-buds dancing. 
  • Chicken Salad With Couscous and Mango: This is a great choice for a light, yet satisfying meal at The National New York. Tender chicken, seasoned couscous and juicy sweet mango create a festival of flavors and textures in this colorful, delicious salad.
