1. a signature NY cheesecake?
2. A nice dinner for two? a not to be missed place. Nothing too too expensive, but good nonetheless. I eat anyting but nuts, peanuts and oysters, thanks to allergies. Something I can't get better versions of in LA.
(please, no pastrami wars started up...I love Langer's, you love Katz's, the world keeps revolving with love.)
3. A basic do it yourself salad bar (Any Whole Food's near Chelsea?)
4. great beer/microbrew spot.
