I'm visiting Manahattan (from Los Angeles) and would like to know what you Chowhounders would recommend for casual, not-too-expensive dining. Places that are "only in NYC" are what I'm looking for. I"m pretty well informed about the high-profile places, but I'm looking for the hidden gems that locals love. Suggestions for:
Breakfast (what makes a typical NYC breakfast?)
Lunch for hungry visitors (something to go to between site-seeing)
Bakery/Dessert (some place to visit after a show)
Market (where I can find items from NYC purveyors)
I know this is pretty broad, but I'd appreciate any suggestions. I'll be there from Friday, May 19 through Sunday, May 21.
