44 & X (Hell's Kitchen) Restaurant
44 & X (Hell’s Kitchen)
622 10th Ave. at 44th Street
“Reinvented American Classics” cooking packs this all-white room with Hell's Kitchen neighborhood locals and savvy theatergoers, happy to find such good food and friendly service just west of the Broadway theater district. You'll find down-home dishes such as mac-and-cheese, buttermilk fried chicken with chive waffles, and meat loaf swathed in tomato sauce. Not to mention grilled braised short ribs and fish (sea bass, salmon, etc.). An interesting crowd – a happening spot. That said, there is little to absorb sound, so be warned that the indoor noise level can get a bit loud.
Full bar, warm-weather sidewalk terrace covered by a striped awning.
Dinner 7 days from 5:30 pm. Lunch M-F 1:30-2:30; Brunch Sat/Sun 11:30-3:00.
