2 hours to eat then catch a train

Felton Nov 26, 2007 05:37 PM

I'm in the City for a business meeting next week. The meeting will end at 4:30ish and I have to catch a train out of Penn Station at 7. The meeting is at Broadway and 37th, so just a couple of blocks from Penn Station. I'd like to get something good to eat before I board the train. Some of the previous threads on Penn Station area tips have left me thinking that this task might be more difficult than I expected. Thoughts? Thanks.

    Sit at the bar in the pub room at Keen's.

      Keens is a good suggestion. It's on 36th, b/t 5th & 6th (closer to 6th). I've never noticed a bar in the Pub Room, but there is a separate bar room.

        The perfect suggestion - Keen's.

      If you like Korean food, go to Han Bat, on 35 St. just east of Broadway. I recommend the Hyaemul Dolsot Bibimbap. They give you a nice banchan (free side dishes - in this case, 6 of them, and you can ask for more if you finish any of them).You'll be out of there in an hour, easily, with a full belly and a smile on your face. And the amazing thing is, it will cost you about $13 plus tip!

        SEVEN on 7th Ave, just a couple blocks up from the station.

              Thanks, RGR. I guess that's an eclectic menu.

                Pan, I'd put it in the "New American" category.
