We are staying in this area at the end of the month for Sat-Sun evenings. We are looking for good breakfast places in the area that serve Bacon,egg and cheese on bagels..or even any breakfast sandwiches to go that are quick, delicious, and filling. does anyone have any favorites for breakfast? Willing to schlep it a few blocks for someplace good to great.

Also dinner! We love Italian, Asian, Latin American, Mexican, and basic cuisine. We're not into fancy and fru fru food that looks too pretty to eat. Any suggestions in this area for some dinner that wouldn't break the bank?

        "Break the bank" can have different meanings to people depending on how well-stocked their bank is.

        Pampano, on 49th St., b/t 2nd & 3rd Avs., serves excellent modern Mexican cuisine with an emphasis on fish and seafood. Good service and pleasant ambiance. You can check prices on their website and decide if they would cause your bank to go bust.
