I often find myself on my way home from Manhattan and hungry for dinner. Any suggestions for reasonable, safe, reliable, convenient, casual places that are open late and not far out of the way? Even diners are welcome.
My route is usually usually Henry Hudson (9A) > Cross County > Hutchinson > 684 > 84 > exit 5. Sometimes I take the Saw Mill instead. Looking at the map now, I see that I could also take the Bronx River for part of the trip without losing too much time. (http://goo.gl/maps/66PL)
