No one knows good food like New Yorkers, so please can you share your favorites?
By nearby mean a short cab ride but would love to find a comfortable spot in walking distance too.
I will be in town for eight days on a tv shoot. Going to be long days and nights, so the hours for eating out may be odd, likely some solo dinners and late night dining. For the solo meals, don't care about atmosphere if the food is good.
Will be entertaining a few friends once or twice and for this would like someplace with good food and service. Any recommendations nearby in the following categories:
Has anyone tried Serafina at the Time Hotel? (where I will be staying)
Chinese - especially dimsum
British or Irish or US pubs - quality ales, darts a plus
Lunch spots - delis, etc.
