I will be attending a conference without my husband in early May, staying near the UN. Normally I would go anywhere but by myself I may be a little more restrained. Also I've used up my conference budget on tuition/travel/hotel so I will probably pay for food myself. I think breakfast and lunch during the conference days are included. A couple of questions:
1. Where can I have a good dinner more or less in this area? Are there good restaurants where I can eat at the bar?
2. I will have one day on my own and will go anywhere in Manhattan. Where should I head -- Hell's Kitchen, Village, etc?
I live in Phoenix and have been to NYC a couple times for short trips and will eat pretty much anything.
