Visiting from Baltimore for a couple days - Odd request

bebop102007 | Aug 9, 2011 02:15 PM

Hi Manhattan Board,

My boyfriend and I will be visiting on August 22, 23, 24 and leaving on the 25th. Neither of us has been to New York in over a decade. We'll be staying at the Riverside Tower Hotel (80 Riverside Drive & 80th Street).

I'm a foodie. He's not - but for good reason. He has cancer and had to have part of his tongue removed last year because of it. He's eating again but it's a slow process and the food has to be moist. Things he usually eats are: pasta, cassaroles, breakfast foods, shakes and basically anything that doesn't have hard or dry components to it. Sandwiches are out.

So here's what I'm asking: Can anyone recommend some nice (but not fancy) places to eat? We'd like some places around the hotel but are not limited to the area as we will be sight seeing too.

I'd really appreciate your help. I just don't want him to starve and lose more weight!

Thank you in advance.
