I don't know how near these are to the conference center, but these are some
places we try to eat everytime we go to New YorK. I can vouch for them all.
Three stars = Expensive, two stars = mod. expensive, one star = highly
Il Mulino - Italian - 86 W. 3rd, 673-3783 Mod. exp. call one month ahead
for reseravations. True New York Italian rest. A wonderful experience for
P.J. Clarke's 915 3rd Ave. @ 55th Open late - 3am, good food, reasonable
prices, famous athletes like to come here
Joe Allen's - 326 w. 46th near 8th ave. 581-6464 call for
reservations...good for after a play....have seen several stars there...Al
Pacino, Tony Roberts, Ted Danson...Food is reasonable and resembles
home-cooked...I had meatloaf
Tribecca Grill - 375 Greenwich @ Franklin St. Haven't been here yet, but
will try next time..have heard it is great from people who go to NY all the
time...in Greenwich Square
owned by Robert DeNiro
Top of World Trade Center....is the greatest place for drinks and sight of NY
at night, from inside....Coctails OK....food is mediocre...
\Russian Tea Room --fancy and expensive, but absolutely beautiful 150 W.
57th St. @ 7th Ave.
Grotta Azurra in LIttle Italy 387 Bronze 925-8775 cll for reservations.
Manhattan Cafe , steak and seafood, 161 First Ave. @ 6th St. 888-6556, call

dinner is pretty expensive. It is beautiful..
Carnegie Deli - an absolute must if you love corned beef..One sandwich will
feed two. 854th 7th Ave. @ 55th. No credit cards, Food is absolutely divine!
Tavern on the Green in Central Park...another absolutely beautiful place
right square in Central Park....lots of tiffany stained glass windows...we
also had brunch here before a Sunday play....make reservations....it is
expensive, but well worth it.
Also Tom's, two blocks directly in front of St. John the Divine Episcopal
Church...it is the restaurant that the one on Seinfeld is modeled after...We
went there after church at St. John's which is the largest cathedral in the
US.....and absolutely spectacular...two football fields in length...You can't
see the back of the church from the front....Beautful stained glass windows,
sculptural carvings, nice book store inside...has a Keith Haring room, also
Madeleine L'Engle has her office there....
And the restaurant was absolutely packed....we had the best food, scorching
hot! and great service...and under 10 dollars a person....We came away
filled..and met the "real" Kramer right outside the door, doing NY tours.
We also went to a Brazilian restaurant, where there was one price plus liquor
or wine. 29.95 a plate....and more meat than you could ever imagine....I had
forgotten Brazilians love meat!....Great place if you like meat! not for
These have been some of our top choices....always bagels and coffee for
breakfast from the corner store.,..the grocery stores in Manhattan are
charming....three feet wide and ten feet tall....Some you just go to the door
and tell them what you want and they retrieve it for you....We love NY...wish
we were going with you.....
