I just got back from a two day trip to NYC and wanted to recommend a great restaurant I found. We were walking from E91st back to our hotel on W42nd and went into 44&X. The food was amazing! I'm a vegetarian and former restaurant owner. My sister has a culinary arts degree and is a carnivore. Most important, we're avid foodies. This place was great fun, terrific service and imaginative food. As with most things, you get what you pay for and that applied to our check. Though it's pricey it's worth it. By the way, sorry Bostonians, I found New Yorkers to be very friendly and helpfull...another stereotype bites the dust.
