There are not many places in Brooklyn that have authentic island food. Pearl's hits the spot, among a crowded Williamsburg with a lot of brunch options, Pearl's is one of my favorite. Keep in mind, I'm a sucker for island food. They have really great service and it's my favorite spot for jerk chicken. That alone is a great reason... More

I fell in love with the food at Pearls! The service was fast, and the food was amazing! It is a small restaurant, and the menu was large. The fried rice was to die for, so we will be back the next time we're in NY.

I discovered this 'hole-in-the-wall' on my first trip to NYC in 2007, after a long day of sightseeing New York. So on my latest visit to this wonderful city I went to this restaurant again for lunch. They got all the usuals here for a good price. Most people do take-away, but they have tables on two floors for a... More

I decided to give this place a try and was not expecting much. I ordered off their takeaway menu and for under 10 bucks got a real good meal. The hot and sour soup is as good as any you will find and my main, Szechwan beef, was cooked well and very flavorful. The restaurant it's self is under impressive,... More

First things first: there are two kinds of Chinese food in NYC from a tourist's point of view --> expensive full-service places like Shun Lee (very good) on one end of the spectrum, and delicious but inexpensive places like Pearls (outstanding value) on the other end. I've been going to Pearls for a long time. The place has been very... More

Very close to Times Square. Not crowded. Very fast service. Food was OK, the spicy dishes were not very spicy.

Pearls was fantabulous... Lobster rolls were as good as you would expect if you were standing at the harbour waiting for the fishing boats to come in at Halifax harbour in the spring. The seafood was great, the chowder was perfect and the atmosphere was pure nyc.... No complaints other than the prices. However, know what youre in for and... More

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.
