I'm coming from CT on thurs. Wanted to go to Little Italy first then come back up to Rockefeller Center. On the agenda is Italian Food Center and Ferraras, two of my favorite places for food to take home.Also found Piermonte Ravoli on mondomap http://mondomap.com/mondo/index.cfm?v... which looks good, if anyone has opinions on similar types of places.
Then am looking to have a decent meal, but not wait a long time. I don't know if it will be harder because it's Valentine's Day. Maybe a restaurant that has take out in case the line to be seated is too long. It's hard to tell what I'll be craving that day, but I do like a good veal and eggplant parmigiana, also well stuffed ravioli. Does anyone have any suggestions in the general area I'm talking about? Also late in the day how much time should I allow for this in order to be up to Rockefeller Center by 7? Will have a car.
