    places to eat in New York. Any ideas?

    We have breakfast included with our hotel room so we are looking for a light lunch and then an evening meal.

    Or is it best to just find an eatery wherever you happen to be when you get hungry

    Any places to avoid?

    Not been to either myself, but Katz Deli and Carmine's Italian Restaurant I have heard are both very good.

    Carmine's is quite good. Portions are served family style and are huge! http://carminesnyc.com/index.php

    I like Juniors in Times Square. They have great cheesecake and a HUGE pastrami sandwich that is very nice http://www.juniorscheesecake.com/our.../times_square/

    I've had some lovely hot dogs from street vendors.

    Thanks guys, I'll check out the menus

    Johnie....one thing I have to do (even though I'm not too keen on hotdogs) is to try a hotdog from a street vendor!
    Seen it too many times in the movies

    Holy Cow Johnie, I looked at that Carmine's menu. There would have to be more than just Donna and I to go in there.

    Ok I can help you on this one.... Where are you staying and what kind of food are you interested in eating. For hot dogs I would go to either Grays Papaya or Shake Shack... Stay away from the street vendor for food, trust me on that one.

    Sometimes on the way home from work I will pick up a chicken parm and their Ragu(quite delicious) and the four of us can't finish half of it. Carmine's is great for groups of 6 or more.

    Aw, c'mon, Butterhead, dirty water dogs aren't THAT bad ;-)

    It's an....experience!

    Carmine's is where Jon proposed to me...and where i promptly knocked my glass of wine over

    We always share and we ALWAYS take food home.

    There's a pizza joint that Andrew LOVES, though the name is escaping me at the moment...Butter, maybe you can help? It's in the theatre district and used to be a church, I believe?

    If you find yourself in Grand Central (either by transport, or just to visit) the "basement" has some wonderful food choices. Think: mall food court sort of thing.
