hi hounds,

hubby and i will be in NY for five nights in december. we're staying at the doubletree metropolitan @ 51st and lexington. we pretty much will try/eat anything...we're quite excited to check out all the street food/food carts in NY. so far, i've got dinner reservations at lupa and fig/olive. we're catching a knicks game one night and we'll just grab food at MSG. i think we'll leave the other two nights open to whatever strikes our fancy ... and we normally just have lunch on the go.

i've read a ton of different threads and have gleaned the following recos very near to our hotel:

Ess a bagel (50th/3rd)
Vietnamese fruit cart (52nd/lex)
Juan Valdez (57th/lex)
PJ Clarke (55th/3rd)

specifically, i'm looking for
- cheap/quick breakfasts. ess a bagel + fruit cart ... what else?
- convience stores/supermarkets/pharmacies to pick up water, snacks, yogurt, etc.
- good pizza joint that has take out (i'm thinking that if we're cold/tired, this could be a good excuse to have a 'picnic dinner' in our room)

any other suggestions that you have for the neighbourhood are welcome!
