hell's kitchen/midtown west/times square: good pizza? good ice cream? good produce?
Hell's Kitchen - my "home away from home" because good Chowhound friends live right there. Some suggestions:
Try Claudio's Pizza at the corner of 42 (?) and 9th; good basic pizza with oddball toppings like ziti.
The Chelsea Grill at 675 9th Ave has good-quality ingredients for basic food, and their own homemade potato chips.
For produce, there is supposed to be a greenmarket newly opened in Hell's Kitchen, but I don't have any info on this.
And not too far from this neighborhood on 44th between Broadway and 8th is Times Square Bagels (not on your list but they're so divine I had to mention them), real honest baked and boiled bagels.
you can get pretty good produce at pretty good prices at stiles farmers market on west 52nd street between 8th and 9th avenue,, im not exactly sure of the address but its about in the middle of the block right next to the radio city station post office,,its bascially a huge tent, not inside abuilding and its even open sundays now,, good prices for manhattan
