    Glad to help!!!!

    A hot dog at Grey's Papaya is seventy-five cents. A meal at Ducasse will run you about $350.

        On the front page of this site (upper right hand corner), you can do a search for "Midtown." Unfortunately, Midtown is a large and ill-defined area, so not everything you get will necessarily be helpful. (Also, cabs are easily managed, so you needn't be confined to one neighborhood.)

        You can browse through the Manhattan message board, clicking on anything whose subject heading seems interesting.

        The "New York Today" site from the New York Times (link below) is useful, as they archive various neighborhood guides the Times has done.

        What might work best though, is to post another message, specifying what you're looking for in absurd detail--type of food, atmosphere, seating times, anything you can think of.

        Think of your dream meal, and tell us about it. The nice folks here (all much, much nicer than I) will do their darnedest to figure out how you can make your dream come true.

          Why'd you make the first reply?

          Perhaps YOU've never done anything without reading the instructions; evidently Roger has. So have I.

          The second reply was very nice, though.
