Oh yeah I went to NYC btw...I had a BLAST. It was just...yes there were crowds, but they worked because people understood what they were doing and it all FLOWED right.
So yeah I ate at a few places, trying to remember them...something called Junior's which my mother wanted because apparently their cheesecake is good enough to be recognized. It was good.
For Thanksgiving meal we ate at a Thai place whose name eludes me...really wasn't that spectacular anyway. But I DID eat at a vegetarian restaurant with my folks called Zenith and WOW they did things with vegetable products that floored me, like stuff that had a very meaty consistency and an amazing flavor.
My brother also dragged me to the Jekyl and Hyde theme restaurant...don't bother. That about sums up my eating experience. Thanks for all the advise, I did what I could. Seeing MoMa was definitely one of the best experiences...well that and finding this crazy hole in the wall role playing store
