Mr. Swank and I will be in Manhattan in May for a Broadway show. We're planning our eating itinerary now because we can't wait.
What we need: A wonderful, cheap ethnic meal for lunch on Saturday, preferably below 14th Street. No dim sum, as we'll be heading to Sunset Park for dinner on Sunday for Chinese. Mexican preferred.
A special occasion meal on Saturday night, near Broadway and Eighth Ave -- or within very easy cabbing distance. It doesn't *need* to be pricy, just someplace that feels like a "big night out." We've enjoyed Eleven Madison Park for this purpose in the past.
Sunday: A terrific brunch -- preferably somewhere that has amazing lox, whitefish, and so forth.
