Somewhere on the east side of midtown, just south of Central Park, is a hard to find restaurant called Hillstone. Hillstone is the ultimate mid-American cuisine dining experience. The menu is simple with two fish options (Salmon and Fish of the Day), a wide selection of sandwiches and burgers, and steak with a great roasted chicken option.
The ambiance is quite lively in the evening with jazz music on most nights. The lights are dim and make a great spot for a date night.
I suggest the Kale Salad for an appetizer (with nuts). It has a great Thai flavor. For dinner, I almost always get the roasted chicken. The portions are more than enough. If you are looking for a great desert, I would suggest searching the neighborhood, because their selection is small and not the best in town.
