Chicagoan in NYC for Writer's Conference - where to eat?

wickerkat | Jan 6, 2008 08:06 PM

Hey guys,

New here. Great site. I'll be in NYC end of January for the AWP NYC (a writing conference). I'm staying at the Sheraton on 53rd. I've only been to NYC once before, but loved it - spent some great time in Greenwich, SoHo, Village etc., all over.

Can I get some suggestions on great places to eat that are uniquely NYC? So far I'm looking at Butter and MonkeyBar. I'm up for Italian, Steaks, Thai, Chinese, Sushi, etc. I don't mind dropping a little coin, but if you have a bargain, please share. Chicago SHOULD be similar in pricing. I don't know when I'll get back, so I'm looking for some special dinners, as well as some quick, fun lunches as well.

Ideas? Great new places? Hidden gems? Favorite spot?

Also, is Lola gone? My wife went there for great Cajun a while back, but I can't find it now.
