senor boogie woogie
I read that there was a palce in New York to buy a 50 dollar hamburger. If I was a rich snot, I would eat there.
Really, I would go try some ethnic food, not "American" food. NY is a world city and that’s what I would eat. Italian, Peurto Rican, Russian, Greek, Thai, Chinese, whatever. One can get a wonderful steak and a bottle of wine from Omaha or Peoria! The idea of being in NY is to get stuff you cannot eat back home. And it does not have to be expensive.
I live in China, near to Shanghai which is the size of New York. In Shanghai, I never eat the Chinese food, I can get that anywhere. I eat the foreign foods, cooked by expats. Yummy!
When I go to NYC, there are only two places that are non-negotiable. I have to go to the Grand Central Oyster Bar for lunch, and I have to go to Zabar’s before departing for the airport.
Whenever in NYC, I enjoy dinner at:
225 East 24th
Reservations are *highly* recommended unless
your are a regular. A small family-run place.
Great food. Decent wine list. Not particularly
We had a wonderful brunch at the Manhattan Diner (close to Central Park) & also had a very fun meal at Ellen’s Starlight Diner (Times Square)…. Serendipity for a yummy dessert is fun (you’ll have to time it right or wait awhile). Enjoy your trip.

Just run a search for "New York" above and you will find enough from previous threads to keep you eating for weeks.
I’ve only been to NYC a couple of times and can’t even remember where we ate, if we ate at all. Anyways I’m going to be taking a family trip to Manhatten in a couple of weeks and was looking to eat somewhere really interesting/good. Are there any good place in or around time square? The only place that I’ve heard of around there is Carmen’s. Is it any good and is it worth the long wait? How about in Little Italy/So Ho. I guess I’m looking for a place with either american/italian food with a cool/different atmosphere. Any sugguestions would be greatly appreciated.
