Guide to caffeinating in Midtown Manhattan

The coffee culture in New York has come a long way with an array of worldly options. These are some of my favorites, although there’s plenty more great options throughout NYC. 

Zibetto
1385 6th Ave between 56th & 57th Sts. 
Monday - Friday : 7am - 7pm
Saturday : 9am - 6pm
Sunday : 10am - 5pm

Everybody at Zibetto takes great pride in what they do and serve.  Their unique coffee blend is purely made from carefully chosen beans, roasted to perfection in Italy. Their menu offers delicious Italian pastries, paninis as well as refreshing drinks.  Everything imported from the best producers in the world.  That sounds expensive.  No, not really.  A visit to Zibetto is not a once a week experience.  They see their espresso as a luxury you can afford every day. And for that reason they keep moderate prices. 


Little Collins
667 Lexington Ave between 55th & 56th Sts.
Monday - Friday : 7am - 5pm
Saturday & Sunday : 8am - 4pm

Pays homage to the spirit of the bustling street in Melbourne, Australia, after which it is named.  Every aspect of the café has been designed with the customer experience in mind. From the chic, industrial interior to the delicious, no-nonsense menu to the music that fills the space, Little Collins hits all the senses and makes people feel transported and completely at home, all at once. This is a place where the barista knows your name and remembers your favorite sandwich.  They are thrilled to be partnering with Counter Culture Coffee and honored to be the first café in New York to unveil the ModBar.


Blue Bottle Coffee
1 Rockefeller Plaza Concourse Level, Suite D at Rockefeller Center
6th Avenue near W. 49th St
Monday - Friday : 7am - 7pm
Saturday & Sunday : 9am - 7pm

This California-born company opened their second New York shop on the concourse level of Rockefeller Center. As the largest private construction project of the twentieth century, Rockefeller Center is comprised of eight million square feet of office space. They occupy a cringingly modest .0000875 percent of the total complex.  Nestled around the corner from the famed ice skating rink and down the steps from 1 Rockefeller Plaza, their coffee bar is a sleek and efficient respite from the clamor of Midtown.  They serve espresso, blends, and single origin coffees along with two styles of iced coffee. They keep the community of tourists and high-rise inhabitants happy with parfaits and pastries baked at their Brooklyn kitchen.  The Rockefeller Center café can be a little tricky to find.

Inquire with the Concierge Desk for more information.

With winter well underway, it is time to take out your winter jackets and stroll uptown, where a world of art is at your fingertips! Sip away on a hot beverage while you walk “The Museum Mile” on 5th Avenue along the beautiful Central Park…. And visit these world-renowned artists: 

Neue Galerie 5th Avenue 
86th Street 

Gustav Klimt’s The Woman in Gold (permanent view) Neue Galerie New York is a museum devoted to early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design, displayed on two exhibition floors. The second-floor galleries are dedicated to art from Vienna circa 1900, exploring the special relationship that existed then between the fine arts (of Gustav Klimt, Richard Gerstl, and Alfred Kubin). Gustav Klimt’s glorious portrait “The Woman in Gold” is the centerpiece here, on permanent view. Also check out the stylish Café Sabarsky on the first floor for a chic uptown lunch!

Metropolitan Museum of Art 5th Avenue
82nd Street 

Jerusalem 1000-1400 Every People Under Heaven (September 26th- January 8, 2017) This exhibition demonstrates the key role that the Holy City played in shaping the art of the period from 1000 to 1400. It is also the first to unravel the various cultural traditions and aesthetic strands that enriched the medieval city. Featuring 200 works of art from 60 lenders worldwide. 

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
53rd Street between 5th and 6th Ave.

Francis Picabia: Our heads are round so our thoughts can change direction (November 21- March 19, 2017) This is the first exhibition in the United States to feature the great modern artists of the past century, Francis Picabia (French, 1879-1953) Though he is best known as one of the leaders of the Dada movement, his career ranged widely from Impressionism to radical abstraction. Featuring over 200 works this exhibition aims to advance the understanding of Picabias’s relentless shape-shifting.

Dana's Picks

This theater-loving concierge is overwhelmed by all the options flooding the boards this Broadway season. The clear winner thus far is the awesome historical hip-hop musical HAMILTON, taking Broadway by storm with equally awesome ticket prices!  Also try these new star-studded additions to the New York theater scene:

HAMILTON - writer Lin-Manuel Miranda workshopped his hip-hop Opera in DC – in front of the President – before landing at the famed Public Theater downtown.  The PBS documentary about the making of this historic – and historical – musical recently aired, illuminating the process to bring this American musical to life.  Though the cast has turned over – Lin-Manuel Miranda has moved on to other projects - the new cast has attracted much attention recently.  Politicians of all stripes have come to the theater, reigniting the excitement around the already politically charged musical.  One thing is for sure: Hamilton will continue to impress with its fresh take on America’s early days … but be prepared to spend a pretty penny for the history lesson.

NATASHA, PIERRE AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 – This “Great Comet” followed a similar trajectory to the smash mega-hit Hamilton before landing on Broadway this fall.  Both musicals began far off-Broadway and both seek to recreate history through a contemporary lens.  Natasha… found its way to a Meatpacking District event space after an initial workshop at the adventurous Ars Nova Theater Company.   Happily, both shows arrived on Broadway with indie street cred still intact.  Natasha, an adaptation of Tolstoy’s War & Peace, immerses you in the world of the play from the moment you walk in to the Imperial Theater, reimagined as a Russian salon.  Powerhouse vocalist Josh Groban also shows impressive acting chops in a Tony-worthy performance in a musical that is completely sung through.  If you don’t want to spend $1000 on Hamilton, consider his Russian counterpart Natasha.

FALSETTOS – Though a legendary musical in its own right, Bill Finn’s Falsettos that never achieved fame outside of Broadway circles.  The sensibility and subject matter of this 1992 musical are singularly New York.  The play follows the lives of a profoundly unorthodox family and a 10-year old boy, as articulate and neurotic as his nontraditional parents.  Described by the New York Times as “An AIDS-Era Musical in an Age of Marriage Equality”, this “exhilarating, devastating” revival approaches perfection in its tenderness, humor and humanity.  The ensemble cast is stellar across the board with stand-out performances from Christian Bjorle (Tony-award winner, Something Rotten) and Andrew Rannells (Book Of Mormon, and TV’s Girls; The New Normal) as unlikely lovers.  

Meet Dana Dana is a full-time New York resident and part-time professional theater actor since 2000.  Breaks in his acting career afforded Dana opportunities to fall in love with New York…through work in New York’s the vibrant restaurant, nightlife, fitness and hotel scenes.  A fitness and theater enthusiast, Dana strives to see all that he can on Broadway and is proud to give guests the whole truth about the New York theater scene.
