I see that the unprecedented media coverage of chowhound.com has brought a number of new posters to this board. I'm sure I speak for the rest of the Chowhound community in welcoming you all! This is not an "official" welcome, as I am just a poster like you, only I've been posting here for a couple of years or so, having discovered this website at some point by checking to find out "What's Related" to some other web site (Zagat? I can never remember).
I want to suggest that all of you do some searches to check on whether the questions you want answered have already been discussed. The best ways for you to do searches are (1) by clicking "Edit" and then "Find" when you are on the board (NOT while reading this message), and typing the text you want to search for (e.g. "Midtown"); (2) by using the Search function from the Chowhound home page - input the text you want to search for and press "Chew." You'll save a lot of time that way, as lots and lots of things have been covered extensively.
As they say in Italy: Chow, chow! (Well, that's what it sounds like... :-)
