      We are staying in times square, budget is no issue, and were open on trying different cuisines. French, American, different types of fusions, something that we will absolutely not find in Arizona, and will want to go back to NY for. Thank you.

        We travel to New York City from Toronto, Canada at least twice a year and always look forward to visiting these following two restaurants as well as trying new ones everytime:

        Balthazar Restaurant - -
        Sardi's - -

          Breakfast at Barney Greengrass is a NY experience not subject to duplication. I have the nova, eggs and onions with a nice onion roll and a hot cup of coffee.

          If you want to go further upscale, Redeye Grill has a great Jazz Brunch.
          Of course, some congee in Chinatown makes a nice breakfast as well.
