We are two Phoenix Chowhounds who will be visiting the City January 3-6. We're staying in Times Square, but are more than willing to travel throughout Manhattan via subway/taxi. We'd like moderately-priced restaurants if possible (trying to budget to make up for holiday excess). Looking for suggestions in the following categories:
1. Italian (regional or "Italian-American"), as you'd imagine, Italian food in Phoenix is dreadful.
2. Breakfast in the Times Square area. A good bagel recommendation would be great, or any other bakery or greasy spoon type places.
3. Carribean/Latin American (just not Mexican, plenty of good Mexican in Phoenix).
5. Mediterranean/Middle Eastern.
I'm looking forward to your suggestions and thank you in advance!
