The Press Box Restaurant & Pub

The Press Box Is Located ON Second Avenue Between 49th & 50th Streets and we are proud to offer our superb lunch, dinner and takeout menu to local residents and office workers alike. You are welcome to come and relax here while enjoying a bite to eat in our cozy bar which boasts a selection of twelve tap beers and a fine choice of wines by the glass and bottle. Perhaps you would prefer to come for brunch to sample our famous Traditional Irish Breakfast or how about our popular three course prix fixe dinner which, priced at $19.95 is one of the best deals in Midtown Manhattan. If you’re looking for somewhere to host a party or event, please come and see our beautiful second floor "Press Room" with hand crafted mahogany woodwork, exposed brick work and a glass frontage opening on to the Avenue. We cater parties from 10—100. Call Kim or Joe to plan your birthday party, office event, rehearsal dinner, christening, etc. We'll take care of everything!

"The restaurant was close and had a last minute reservation for 6, but we were pleasantly surprised. The burgers were really well cooked (actually pink when we asked for medium)."
