New York, NY / Dining / Entertainment

Welcome to Mr. Magnani Caruso Dutton's Neighborhood. Because we like to push more than just digital boundaries, we’re located in the just beyond Chelsea, almost Flatiron, not quite South Midtown area (known to no one as CheFlaSoMi). It’s a vibrant corner of the world (due in no small part to our creative team) that you would likely never come across unless you had to, and we love it. Here are some of our favorite neighborhood spots that keep us fed, sane, and entertained.

1. Magnani Caruso Dutton HQ

Magnani Caruso Dutton

138 W 25th St New York, NY, 10001

Get Directions

Welcome to where the magic happens. Our office is located in the center of the block. To get here you’ll pass by several retail display showrooms no matter which direction you come from. Just as you start to think, “no, no, this can’t be right, I must be going the wrong way”, you’re here! Just look for the blue MCD flags hanging outside and come on up to the 5th floor. We’ll be waiting for you.

2. Grab a Coffee and a Fist Bump

Johny's Luncheonette

124 W 25th St New York, NY, 10001

Our sometimes strange but always interesting block is also home to one of the city's best lunch counters. This tiny luncheonette serves up huge portions of diner-style breakfast and lunch with a smile and a fist bump from Johny himself. Definitely a staff favorite.

3. Shake it up in Madison Square Park

Madison Square Park

2 Madison Ave New York, NY, 10010

Get Directions

Our own little urban oasis. With ample (for new york) green space, abundant seating and free wifi, Madison Square Park is the perfect place to eat lunch outside or walk off a long meeting. It's also home to Danny Meyer's gourmet Shake Shack, which serves some of the city's best burgers and shakes right in the park. It's a popular place and the lines can get long, but most will agree, it's worth the wait. Speaking of the wait, you can see how long the line is from this live feed here: http://www.shakeshack.com/location/madison-square-park/#shack-cam

4. Pizza, NYC Style

Grimaldi's Pizza

656 6th Ave New York, NY, 10010

Get Directions

NYC is known for it's pizza and attitude. Gimaldi's serves up some of the best of both. This is not your average slice joint. This is pizza institution that serves coal-fired brick oven pizza by the pie, just the way Frankie liked it (Frank Sinatra that is). You'll want to bring your appetite...and cash. Like so many NYC institutions, they don't take credit cards.
Don't just take our word for it. Check out Grimadi's on the Travel Channel's Food Wars (spoiler alert, they win).

This down-home fare is sold by the pound and served in a fun, casual atmosphere that makes you want to roll up your sleeves and dig in. So go ahead and use your fingers, we won't judge (but we will join in).
