I'm going on vacation in October, flying from JFK.
I want to have something very delicious to eat onboard-- something *very* delicious because I'll be traveling with a dear friend who's never been to NYC and she's making the connection at JFK.
(In other words, I'm going from Manhattan to meet her when her plane lands and then we fly out together.)
Given that she won't see NYC, I want to take a good culinary sample of NYC food, one that won't suffer from the subway/bus trek to the plane, and the couple of hours to wait to board... Also I would need to buy from a place where things are packed well, for that same reason.
I was thinking of:
(a) a great sandwich (no mayo or other quickly perishable stuff) that can be eaten cold, from a great sandwich place.
(b) a wonderful sweet that can travel well
(c) ??? I don't know what else.
