I'll be in Manhattan in a few weeks from Sat-Mon with my wife and toddler. Staying on east 48th Street. Not afraid to take the subway so willing to travel to get to good food, but to the extent that they are close to our hotel all the better.
We'd love some good, reasonable $$ wise recommendations from folks for places to eat. Our daughter is well behaved but we're also looking for places that could seat us early, say 6ish. Number one request is for a great sushi experience. We are also specifically looking for good ethnic places, Indian Thai or Chinese food. Also a greasy spoon diner type place that does great pancakes would be a plus, and any pizza recommendations you might have.
I will also search through the board looking for recommendations but thought I'd post this as well.
Thanks in advance.
