In preparation for the visit of our Minneapolis Chowhound family to Manhatten for a week I have been combing through the posts but have only managed to confuse myself since I don't know Manhattan neighborhoods. So much great food, so little time.
Could anyone suggest good chow options based on our itinerary? Since our party includes two(very adventurous) teenagers we are more interested in great cheap eats than gourmet dining - stuff that's unique to NYC.
Breakfast near hotel, Holiday Inn Downtown (good Chinese pastry, congee?)
Lunch/Dinner near college visit at NYU
Dinner near Knitting Factory
Lunch near Steps on Broadway (2121 Broadway)
Lunch near Museum of Moving Image (this should probably go to the OB Board)
Dinner near Barrow St Theater
Lunch near Canal St. bargain shopping
Dinner near Virginia Theater
