We are headed to Manhattan in August to see Hamilton, and we'll be based in Midtown East (E 51st). We'll be around for 4 nights, 5 days, and we're looking for some recommendations for the following:
Solid bagel within walking distance
Coffee within walking distance
Pastrami Sandwich within a long walk
Ethnic food that's hard to find in the middle of the country
One or two picks for a nice dinner out; we'd prefer tasting menus under $200 apiece. Willing to travel for this one. We have wide-ranging palates; best meal we've ever had was at Alinea.
Quick lunch in the theater district before the show. Again, open to suggestions for style.
Thanks for your help!
