Staying at the new IC in Times Square Fri Sat Sun at end of this month.
Looking for walkable breakfast and brunch spots.
Ideally one cheap and cheerful - bagels , pancakes , eggs - whatever
One super brunch experience - to slay a hangover
And one - only in New York - you have to go here even if it is expensive option just in case I can persuade my travelling companion to splurge.
Hope you can help.
Oh, and are there any decent threads re best bar hopping or restaurant hopping areas in Manhattan at the moment ?
Am travelling from UK and the guidebooks always seem to be at least six months behind the times. Am ashamed to say that despite a few visits in the past have never had as great a night out in NYC as I often have in Chicago as I find myself having no real clue where to go. Particular likes - real ales ( with decent food ?) - and lively friendly places frequented by slightly indie anglophile types who are in their 30's - 40's and not too up themselves. A tall order, I know, but let's see what you can come up with !
Thanks for any pointers you can give.
