My wife and I are coming to NY (and the US) for the first time in May, staying at the Skyline Hotel (10th and 49th street). We are pensioners (or as you say "senior citizens!!) and therefore aren't "big spenders" and want to eat in traditional US eateries (you can eat multinational in any city). Also though we have good appetites we believe the portions in many places are what we Brits would call "huge". So - any tips from you New Yorkers on a) good but not too expensive diners in our hotel area (we've got the Cosmic Diner and Renaiissance Diner from the internet - any reports on these or recommendations for alternatives for breakfast or dinner, b) any tips on how to share meals - is it OK in all restaurants or how do you negotiate a deal?
Any advice, however insignificant it may seem, will be much appreciated!!
ps - sorry about the exchange rate - at least it means we may spend more!!
