44 & X is an expensive restaurant on 44th and 10th Avenue with white tablecloths and people eating sirloin and sea scallops. 44X is good for a dinner with your parents or when money isn’t a thing and you just want a really nicely cooked piece of fish or a cocktail that’s named after a broadway show (“Mean Girls ‘Burn Book Bubbly’” and “Aperols in America” to name a few). On the weekends though, this place turns into a busy brunch spot for the younger, neighborhood crowd. They have a separate Broadway-actor-themed cocktail list for brunch.
