NYC this weekend, dinner idea for it or 3/9

I'll be in NYC this weekend and am hoping BuckyTom can help me out with dinner ideas for when I'm there. Plus, curious how the weather is. Last weekend in Providence RI the snow was crazy. I froze my ears off

Tonight, DH is on his own and will be until Monday night. Dinner for him will be the MaidRites from two nights ago unless he wants to heat up the split pea soup I made last night that we didn't eat. It's frozen in Seal-A-Meal bags for later use.

I'll have Taco Bell in Houston tonight then hit the wrack early as work starts early for me in the morning. Tomorrow night, I'll eat at "99" in Boston. Their food is pretty good and it's close to the hotel, big plus.

How bout you? Cookin/eatin?

ok lefse, what part of nyc will you be visiting this weekend? if you're here on saturday and can make it to midtown or the upper west side, i would be happy to give you a tour of cbs, and maybe we could stop for a pint and a snack with my irish buddies.
also, what kind of food are you interested in trying? we have every nationality on earth right around this neighborhood.
abjcooking should be able to help you with suggestions more on the east side.

Manhattan, right in the heart of Ole Broadway. Around 45th and 8th. I can't do the pint thingie, as I'm allergic to beer. Yah, I know bummer huh? Anyhoo, I love all kinds of food and one of my favorite restaurants there is O'Connoly's I think it's called. Great food, Irish Pub and a fun place. Hum, when I get to the hotel, I'll check on the computer they have set up for us there. I'll come back into here and maybe we can meet up. I'm there all month, all weekends, so if not this weekend, another is fine too.

Site Administrator, No problem ruin away, that may just be a good thing as I'm not usually a person who goes after the heart blocker

good, you're right nearby. will you be here for st. pat's, next friday? the city gets a little crazy, but so long as you're not driving, it's a lot of fun.

i'll have to check out connoly's sometime. i wonder if anyone i know works there?
my regular pubs are on 57th street, dj reynolds, and kennedy's.
great craic (fun times, good conversation) in both places.

anyway, you pick the saturday, and i'll come get you. you're right near the letterman theatre, so i might be able to get us in backstage there. they don't shoot on weekends, but bring a camera, we'll get some shots of you on the stage.

hmmm, i think if i don't take you to katz's, gb might disown me...

Lef!!!

Katz's is ok (I liked 2nd Ave) but you are literally steps from BECCO Lidia Bastianich's excellent restaurant. Katz's is like 5 miles away and not the easiest of subway rides. If you do go there, try to hit Russ and Daughters, too. It's a cool foodie place.

Also, about the 99..... If you live here, it's an ok place to eat. If you don't live here and there isn't anything else close, it's an ok place. But otherwise there is soooooooooo much good food here in Boston!!! Where is your hotel? There are lots of 99's (it's a chain).

LOL bucky I am sure you can show her some much better places than Katz's. I know you would not let her down.

I agree with you jenny there there are much better delis than Katz's. No one can touch their pastrami though. I have dreams about it every month or so. I feel one coming on tonight

Wow I missed that part about the 99's. Jenny is right on about that place. It is decent, but you can do so much better. The 99's is a chain. it is a great place to go if you have kids as most of the food is very kid friendly. Boston is filled with amazing places to eat from dives that are dirt cheap to very fancy places that you need to take a second mortgage out just to even look at the menu. You can do much better than the 99's that is for sure!

NYC and eateries, the selection is endless! You might want to post the question in the Road Forum catagory. Are you looking for a dinner recipe or places to dine? What is your price range and what types of food/cuisines do you enjoy? Suggestion - go to frommer's. You will find off-the-beaten path restaurants and right-on-the-money reviews.

Some suggestions - The Plaza, Trump Towers, Tavern on the Green, The Four Seasons...the list goes on and on. There are some great little places in the East and West Village, as well. If you're hankering for a sandwich, try The Stage Deli. If it's your first time in NYC, I would go for the best restaurants, rather than a deli.

Not there for St. Patty's day, will be shortly only in Boston again. Since I'm on my way out of dodge, I'll check computer tonight when I get to hotel in Houston
~~~~~~~~~~~
Jennyema, I am only there for abou 12 hours and it is very close, walkable from the hotel I'm staying in. Otherwise, I'd eat in the hotel and I know that's not all that wonderful.
Also, I know of wonderful places to eat in NYC, but wanted BuckyTom to add his ideas as he's said he'd do that for me before.
