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.
If you are going to
It’s so refreshing to know that the HISD is fining folks for fundraisers. Maybe they should form the group FFFF. One high school was fined because a coach, while raising money for his school sold Popeye’s chicken without divulging the fat content. (Maybe he should have written it on the drumsticks). Another fined for selling ice cream in more than four ounce sizes. There are too many infractions to name but like we have been telling you for years, the country is going crazy….(Going, you mean gone)….with rules that have affected every kid who likes pop tarts to those operating lemonade stands. I am in the 21st century just like the rest of the world but am so glad I was brought up at a time when good….meant good…not evil. Church socials, covered dishes, ice cream from a wagon sold by a guy without gloves and penny candy that was probably handled by every kid on the block before it was sold. I sold Kool Aid one summer and after every glass, would wash it in a bucket of water. (one glass, you know). I sold out every Saturday for a month before the kid down the street sold it for 3 cents instead of a nickel and drove me out of business. My grandchildren will never experience that. What a pity. George Orwell had it right. Big Brother is watching!!! The Houston Independent school district is not the only spoil sport.. All over this country, it’s happening. Yeah, I wash my hands too. But I am not the food police…thank goodness.
