    Places to eat while at ASE09
    I'm very happy to share that there's a Whole Foods Market "around the corner" from the Hilton at 10 Columbus Circle.

    The Hilton is on Avenue of the Americas between W. 53rd and W. 54th Streets. The Whole Foods is located on W. 58th Street between 8th Ave. and 9th Ave. The distance is four uptown blocks and 2.5 crosstown blocks. Not too shabby!

    You can also check out MenuPages: http://www.menupages.com/. It's a great searchable database of restaurants by neighborhood, cuisine, price, etc. They have tons of reviews, too, so you know what you're getting into.

    Is Emeril going to be there with his Green Cooking Show?

    That would be cool.

    If not, the organic veggies ROCK!

    Don't get me wrong I love Whole Foods but when I'm in NYC I hope to check some new places out. Any other recommendations for must eats from the New Yorkers out there?

    3 great places to eat nearby - Rockefeller Center
    I work at nearby Rock Center, and it has great places to eat: Sea Grill - upscale, excellent seafood with view of Rink Bar courtyard; Rock Center Cafe - more casual dining, inside or outside at the Rink Bar. The Rock Center Concourse also has Cucina & Co. - casual, either sit-down or buffet, next to Rock Center Cafe; and lots of other options, all connected underground.

    The whole Rock Center area is busy day and night, great place to hang out, shop, meet others. From Hilton, just walk down [south] 6th Ave. a couple blocks to 50th, go left [east] on 50th half a block, and you're there -

    I noticed the Halal food cart across the street from the Hilton New York had a line of probably 30-40 people at about 1pm yesterday. I haven't tried it out yet, but the line looked like a good sign to me.

    If you're a Hilton Diamond or have a room on the Executive Floor, the Executive Lounge at the Hilton New York has tons of hors d'oeuvres from 5-7pm. That's been our "dinner" the past couple nights.

    We haven't tried any restaurants near the hotel yet, but we did eat at Bubba Gump's in Times Square (only about half a mile away) for lunch today.

    If you are planning on going down to the World Trade Center site a good little place to get a decent meal is about a block north of there. http://www.biddyearlyspub.com/foodmenu.htm

    It's easy to walk to a lot of different restaurants/eateries/take-out from the Hilton or hotels in that neighborhood: it all depends upon what you are looking for and the price range that is comfortable for you.

    Many restaurants in the area have a "Pre-Fixe Theatre Menu" that is based upon popular dishes: these menus will save you money and are often generous with portions [or with the variety you are allowed to sample] plus meals from these menus are usually served promptly.

    Scan this list and you'll see you have a wide variety of places to choose from:
    http://www.menupages.com/restaurants.../all-cuisines/

    It's easy to walk to Times Square from the Hilton and there are many restaurants there; they tend to be chain restaurants so you are probably familiar with some of them.
    If you go to Times Square check out my favorite restaurant: the consistent yet inexpensive crowd pleaser that my friends and I have enjoyed every time.
    Dallas BBQs
    http://dallasbbq.com/times-square
    They have a children's menu.
    BBQs' claim to fame is not only their delicious Bar-B-Qued chicken & ribs [their burgers are great too] but their Texas-Sized Frozen drinks [in a wide variety of flavors and the drinks come with a paper umbrella]. You can order the drinks with or without alcohol plus you can request an extra shot - watch out they are potent.

    My favorite location of BBQs is the one on 73rd Street and 3rd Avenue because it has a very pleasant enclosed porch [convenient to Central Park & many museums]
    http://dallasbbq.com/upper-eastside

    If you go to BBQs and you order the chicken ask for the original rosterieed chicken; if you ask for honey basted or bar-b-que basted they glop on too much sauce.
    Otherwise, all the menu items are consistently good.
    One of my friends used to be a waitress at the 73rd Street location. I have been eating at Dallas BBQs for 20 years. The food at all their locations is good.
    Their East Village location is in a cool neighborhood [2nd Ave @ St. Mark's Place] if you are curious about walking through the East Village.

    Beautiful Dining Experience in a Museum
    I like to walk. I think that a walk from the Hilton to The Metropolitan Museum of Art is fun and easy especially if you walk up 5th Ave; the museum is located at 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street [you can take a taxi].

    The museum has many dining options that will certainly enhance your visit to New York City:

    There are many good options.
    BBQs & [some of] the Museum restaurants are affordable.

    Are you looking for really really special [in that area]?
    Gallagher's Steakhouse is famous
    http://www.gallaghersnysteakhouse.com/
    I see they have a Pre-Fixe Menu
    http://www.gallaghersnysteakhouse.co...-Fixe-Menu.jpg

    One of the most beautiful places to dine in NYC is the Oak Room in The Plaza Hotel
    http://www.oakroomny.com/media/oakroom.html
    I believe they have a Pre-Fixe Menu

    Fun & Funky Delicious Food @ Bloomingdales
    If you are staying @ the Hilton, you are on the West Side.
    It's easy to walk/cross over to the East side to Lexington Avenue [if you like to walk - if you don't like to walk then take a taxi]
    Go to 59th Street

    If you are walking my tip is walk over to West 57th Street because it is an interesting street -- walk East to Lexington Ave. Go to 59th

    I like:
    40 Carrots
    7th floor
    Mon - Fri: 10am - 7pm, take-out 10am - 7:30pm
    Saturday: dine-in and take-out 10am - 6pm
    Sunday: dine-in and take-out 11am - 6pm

    They have other restaurants but I have never been to the others.
    They have healthy soups, salads, sandwiches, and a variety of main entrees -- you will find something you like at Bloomingdale's 40 Carrots. The decor is fun & funky.
    I love their Frozen Yogurt -- it's the best

    If you are in the Trade Center/NYSE/Wall Street area this is the best Italian food in that area:
    Rosarios
    38 Pearl Street
    NY, NY 10004
    (212)514-5763, 5772, 5454
    (212)514-5763 fax
    http://www.rosariosmenu.com/
    They are telling the truth:
    "More savvy Wall Street types have put their money into eating at Rosario's..."

    I used to be a runner & a clerk on the NYSE and my boss sometimes would be kind enough to order from Rosario's.

    Last Minute Tips [Eating/Neighborhoods]
    I tried to put up a bunch of tips the other day
    I have a few more tips.
    It all depends on how much leisure time you have while you are in NYC and/or how many days you are staying in NYC.

    MenuPages is your best bet for finding what you are interested in at a comfortable price:
    http://www.menupages.com/
    Check it out

    St. Mark's Place was once a "dangerous" place on the edge -- now they call it "Little Tokyo"
    It's still a lot of fun and worth checking out if you have the time
    http://www.thevillager.com/vil_93/turningjapanes.html
    Getting there:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1_%28Ne...way_service%29

    If you are on the East Side you can take the 6 to Astor Place
    http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/sixline.htm
    The buses that go to that area are:
    M1, M2, M3, M8, M101, M102, M103
    Paul's Guide to St. Marks Place, NYC
    http://www.pnelsoncomposer.com/guides/stmarks/

    New York City has a wonderful Chinatown
    http://www.explorechinatown.com/

    People often ask me where the Strawberry Fields Memorial to John Lennon is -- Location: West Side between 71st and 74th Streets
    http://www.centralpark.com/pages/att...ry-fields.html

    If you are in that area of Central Park and you would like to eat, I strongly recommend BBQs

    If you are interested in more Indian restaurants, try "Curry Hill" [Indian Section of Murray Hill]
