One day trip - Slice of pizza and dinner advice for solo chowhounder
- six dower Aug 12, 2009 10:32 AM
I will be traveling from Newark Marriott by train to Penn station on Monday. I will cab or sub to shopping in Midtown and then anywhere for dinner. I am looking for a slice of pizza to hold me off until dinner.
Where should I go for the pizza near Penn station?
Recommendations for dinner? Price - no issue. Would like to dine at a bar. Love great bread (warm) service. I would like to have dinner between midtown and Penn Station; however I can venture out a bit, since I can grab a cab.
NY Pizza Suprema is very near Penn Station:
For dinner, any preferences on cuisine type?
Not sure about Midtown + great bread service where the bread is ALWAYS warm. IIRC, the Bar Room at the Modern's bread basket is good (but not amazing) but has often arrived freshly baked.
Dining at the bar at Otto is great.
DelPosto for a good bread basket
Bouley has a bread cart.
I love the bread basket (the pretzels sticks) at angelo and maxies.
I also LOVE the foccacia at BiCe.
If you love seafood, you can't go wrong dining at the bar at Esca (43rd and 9th). The bartenders are very friendly, and the food is consistently superb.
