I was in the city with a lovely friend for a tour, and we tried the Tommy Bahama restaurant in Midtown. I wanted a place we could have a reservation after our tour, and since this was open around 2011, wanted to check it out.
This vacation-esque "lifestyle" concept takes up two levels of the historical Fred F. French building on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 45th Street. Out of the 90-plus Tommy Bahamas located around the country (not all in malls, mind you), only 13 of them feature this food and beverage component.
The glorious building was built in 1927 with an Art Deco facade. The inside is really just magical. We couldn't help stare and ohh and ahhh over this gorgeous design!

I am sorry the photos are not better, but I wanted to give you an idea of portion size, which we both thought was very generous. The food tasted great, and we both would go back again. I don't normally suggest you visit a chain restaurant when in New York City, but, this is one that is not in every state, and I would highly recommend it. I need to find room next time to try dessert!
