I just found out that I will be traveling from DC to meet my sister traveling from LA for a short weekend in NYC. We will be staying on the UWS (Broadway & W 75th). I am looking for recommendations for all meals for restaurants that we can get into without a reservation or long wait. We like all kinds of food, not fancy, local/fresh a plus. Not sure what our plans are in terms of activities yet.
Late-ish dinner on UWS (on the day we get in)
Breakfast/brunch places on UWS
Someplace between UWS and Penn Station where I can pick up food to bring to my cousin's family who just had a baby (will be traveling out to Cold Spring, NY)
