This San Francisco 'hound will be coming to visit this weekend for the Interpol show near Union Square. Are there places nearby where we can get a little "Taste of New York" -- specifically, a great pizza slice, an authentic bagel (we apparently don't have those here!), as well as a high-end place (any type) that isn't completely impossible to get into at this late stage? Any other recommendations for foods we must try would be great. Budget isn't a concern, and we can eat several times a day in order to make sure we don't miss anything... our main objective is to have a potpourri of NY faves under our belt before we leave!!
Thanks in advance!!
