Hotels/restaurants/ money savers in that order.
Michelangelo Hotel Room
Al with Esat Aloshi at Rosie O'Grady's
We always stay at the Michelangelo. Everything is around
Food: Carmine’s 44th and Broadway. They tell you to split entrees…because they are so huge. Salad for one and pasta for one will still leave food on your plate. Be prepared to wait a while. Its popular.
Carnegie Deli. .a NY must. Huge sandwiches but very good. Landmark place. 52nd /7th. Alternative with great desserts, Roxy Deli. 47th on TS.
Ben Bensons for steak but I prefer Uncle Jacks 56th st. or Ruth Chris….yes …Ruth Chris, next door to the hotel.
Ellen’s starlight diner, brk, lunch, or dinner. Singing waiters cheap food. Great experience.
Chinese…WO Pah….(call me about this one)
Get the 27.50 subway card….good for a week, will save you over a hundred dollars or more on cab fare and it’s fun and safe.
Food: McCormick and Kuleto’s. waterfront. Great seafood, a tad pricy, entrees around 25 to 30 but every table has a great view of the water including
ELO trading post. On Sutter. Most magnificent Asian fusion food around. Butternut squash dumplings and ribs the size of
Uncle Vitos. Pasta and ravioli and home made pizza. Less than ten bucks and cheap wine and beer. Bush @ Mason.
Sears….like the store …..on Sutter. Home of silver dollar pancakes, great breakfast, super reuben sandwiches and full meals at a very low price.
Aliottos, Scomas, seafood at the wharf…lot of money touristy, good..but touristy.
Clam chowder in the bowl which is made of cut out sourdough bread. Five bucks and great...Pier 39 at the Wharf.

In reading my copy of USA Today, I was amused to see the front page dedicated to Manti Tao, Lance Armstrong along with a laundry list of reality styled programs that people are duped by every day. You would think in a society equipped with cell phones, I-Pads, computers and every conceivably accurate device we would become smarter. But we are becoming dumber than the bell used to describe a ten pound weight at a gym. We buy into the amazing races where people desperately grab onto a train handle to try to get to the next city ahead of their competition. Do we ever stop to think that the camera man following them has to make it too? Do we really believe that every winner on American Idol will become rich beyond their wildest dreams, despite the fact that less than a handful actually have gone on to successful careers? Do we actually believe a living, breathing twenty two year old would fall for the voice of someone they have never seen and believe them when they say they love them so much? Guess so. I would probably have fallen for that at age 12 too. Not at 22. It’s the real world, people……and we all live in it. Get over it. In a real world, real things happen. REAL!!
