I'm visiting my girlfriend in early April for the weekend (she's working temporarily near Wilmington, Delaware), and we wanted to visit New York for the day. The plan is to take the Amtrak to Pennsylvania Station (8th Ave and W. 33). I have to admit, although I went to New York as a kid, I really have no clue where to go now (girlfriend has never been). The tentative plan is to walk through Times Square up to Central Park. I'd like to find an inexpensive place with character for lunch, and a little nicer placer for dinner ($35 per person?). The keys are great food, interesting atmosphere, and reasonably priced. I know, I ask a lot. :)
Thanks in advance for any advice.
