One of the most fun perks of living in New York City is that at some point, you are likely to accidentally (or purposefully if you are a celebrity stalker) run into a popular show or movie being filmed.
If you live in NYC, you know that moment, when you turn a street corner and see the LUCY and DESI signs on the trailer, and suddenly your notoriously fast-paced walk turns into a slow suburban saunter, as if you now have ALL the time in the world to hang around, casually hoping for a sneak peak.
Restaurants have made their stamp on some of the most famous movie moments in history (hello, When Harry Met Sally) so we’ve rounded up our favorite NYC restaurants featured in TV shows and films to feed your fix. Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.

Nothing says Wall Street like a comb over and a good steak. We can’t imagine Gorden Gekko dining anywhere other than 21 Club – then, or now. This place has stood the test of time.
