First time Chowhounder here.
I’m visiting Manhattan for 3 days over the Easter Weekend from Ireland and I’d like to try out some classic NY restaurants. My hotel’s just off Times Square but I’ll be out and about a good bit so I don’t mind where they are. Ideally I’d like try a Pizza Place, a BBQ and a Mexican.
Pizza: John’s on Times Square sounds good and would be convenient. Or it worth going to some other place like Gimaldi’s or Lombardi's?
BBQ: I know NY isn’t going to be the best place for authentic BBQ but I’d say anything would beat our attempts in Ireland! I was thinking of Blue Smoke. Sound good?
Mexican: Quality seems to vary a lot from what I’ve read. I was looking at places like Agave, Zarela, Rocking Horse and Maya. Anyone have any other rec’s?
