Just a few decades ago, you'd be hard pressed to find people wandering the Flatiron District in search of a satisfying meal. These days, that's all changed. Now, it'd be pretty impossible to swing a dead cat without hitting at least a handful of foodie approved dining destinations.
On one hand, the Flatiron District's hotels have redefined acceptable fare for out-of-towners with jaw-dropping joints that even bring locals in off the streets. There are restaurants like The NoMad, a crazy chic, upscale new American joint that manages to bring the most boring item on any menu - chicken - into the spotlight with their over-the-top chicken for two. Or, how about infusing the area with some serious libations like April Bloomfield's done at The Ace Hotel with her gastropub, The Breslin?
But if you're looking for something to wow the pants off that lucky someone, you'll find that here too in places like Eleven Madison Park. Ranked the best restaurant in the world by the World's 50 Best in 2017, Eleven Madison Park offers the ultimate experience in dining, with impeccable service and sublime food.
So, while few in the past would have answered the question "where's dinner?" with the Flatiron District, we can happily say those days are behind us.
