This may be kind of a weird request. I am heading off to NYC from San Francisco as the guest of a dear (and wealthy) friend. She is putting us up at the Ritz on Central Park. We are splitting our food costs. So while I will be in that expensive hotel, my own budget is not of the Ritz echelon. Can you recommend some inexpensive places for breakfast near the hotel--even just bagels would be fine.
We will be going to several plays at theatres in the Gramercy Park/Union Sq neighborhood and would appreciate ideas for dinners there.
Also will be going to the Met and Guggenheim museums at lunchtimes.
Eating with us will be our two teenagers.
We leave early Thursday morning so any quick responses will be appreciated.
We are so excited to be coming to New York for a cultural and culinary blast.
