I'll be visiting in a few weeks and was wondering about a good bagel place near 48th and 8th Ave. I want to be able to grab something before jumping onto the subway. I'm from California and I've always been told that NY bagels are the best, I'd like to find out why. I might try and hit Ess-A-Bagel and/or H&H if I wind up near them, but I don't think I'll be able to make a special trip. I'm doing tourist stuff and we will be on a tight schedule. Two days to see NYC.
I'd also appreciate a nice place for Late Night in the same area. Anything interesting open in the Theater area after 11? Any cuisine.
And thanks to all posters on this board. I've used the search function on this board to pick Esca and Peter Luger's for our two dinners for this trip.
