I'll be staying at the Marriott East Side, at Lexington and East 49th, for one night -- I'm looking for a dinner (Monday) and a lunch (Tuesday) suggestion.
For dinner on Monday, I'd like something fun, upbeat, under $30 for entrees, within 10 minutes walking of the Marriott. I love small plates and meals made of appetizers. Pera has some meze and wine specials that look interesting - is it recommended?
For lunch, I have a meeting at the Marriott ES that goes until 11am, and a 2pm flight out of JFK (getting there via cab). Do I have any chance of getting a quick lunch, or should I eat at the airport? I was thinking of Pampano Taqueria, or maybe a deli if there's one nearby?
Thanks in advance!
