Found Deli 48 on 48 West 48th Street while looking for a place for breakfast. We knew that we had found a good eating house as it had loads of locals and several security personnel from the nearby Rockefeller Centre. We had a ham and egg omelette and a bacon, fried egg and lettuce roll, both were really tasty and... More

We walked around looking for a quick but filling breakfast - and stumbled upon Delis 48. I found lots of gluten free options - I got an omelette, it wasn't bad. They also had oatmeal and a decent juicing bar. My husband got a sunshine wrap - he said it was good. We also got a fresh squeezed OJ and... More

A nice place with variety in a buffet setting, there is Chinese, Italian, Korean, American where you place what you want in a plastic plate and you pay on the weight. Price was really reasonable. Good chicken noodle soup.

Stopped by with a small group and two of us had burgers. I would rate them as poor however those that had paninis have very good sandwiches. Salad bar/buffet is good but be very careful. You can fill your plate with pasta, bread or potatoes and pay a high price for items that are normally cheap. Chose carefully and you... More

Found this by accident whilst looking for somewhere for a quick lunch after a particularly cold open top bus tour. Great selection of food with freshly made sandwiches with good quality fillings and reasonable prices.

On a field trip to MOMA with teens. Great selection of food, big portions and reasonable prices. Fast service and a decent sized seating area. We all had paninis which came with chips and a pickle for $8.

Asked a New York cop for a recommendation for breakfast, he sent us here. Hope he is better at law enforcement than restaurant critic work. The buffet breakfast wad cold, the coffee was sower and the tables were sticky.

They just installed a station with a proper kitchen stove way in the back past the salad station. This 2 person station has one slaving away by the stove and the other preparing everying to be cooked. You can find standards like spicy pork (jae yook gui, beef kalbi, bi bim bap, etc). Be careful if you have food allergens.... More

Came upon this place accidentally after visiting Rockerfella Centre and we were on the way to the subway. Fantastic selection of eats to suit all tastes and one of the cheapest meals we have had. Great value. If I had known about Delis 48 before, we would of visited again but leaving tomorrow.

One of my favourites breakfast spots in the city. New Yorker Style - You're in, You eat, You're out, all in under 15 mins. The food is good, With breakfast muffins being the staple diet of all New Yorkers you can find a good selection here, accompanied by fresh beverages and good coffee. There is a huge range of food,...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
