One Sunday night in March

ronaldpedwards | Jan 26, 2014 05:58 PM

I am a New Yorker now living in Dallas. I will be in manhattan with my wife and two girls (11 and 16) at the end of March for one Sunday evening and a breakfast Monday morning. This will be their first time in Manhattan. We are staying in Times Square and trying to figure out our options. Here are my thoughts so far: Starting with Monday morning I am thinking of Carnegie deli for brunch just to give them the experience. Moving back to Sunday, we are going to try and catch a half priced Broadway show if we get lucky but either way looking to have a nice dinner with plenty of foods we don't get her in Dallas. As we all like sushi and Japanese overall, I had been hoping to take to a restaurant called Serina, I had been to many years ago but I have heard it closed down. Is there anything similar? It was such a fun place to eat at, and the girls would have loved the decor. Never been to Japan but I assume that was a close facsimile. If not Japanese, we love Chinese food and I miss the New York wonton soup and eggrolls. Anyplace special where we can get the full Peking duck? Something similar? I am hoping to bring them to a place they will remember years from now in case we don't get back that quickly. I was thinking ferrari's bakery in little Italy for dessert if we are in that area. I don't want to go so far as to say price is no issue, especially in NY. But we are willing to splurge a little. Also, what is the nearest pizza by the slice in walking distance from Times Square so they can taste authentic NY pizza? I figure they have to try a slice of pizza, a bagel and a pretzel. Worth trying to take them for a Mickey Mouse at the bar at the Plaza? I appreciate your ideas and know my time is very limited. I was at a first thinking someplace very famous like Russian Tea Room or similar but not sure if that makes sense for us in so little time.
Thanks for any suggestions,
