Good and really quick food close to the port authority bus terminal.

Looking for a really quick place to eat within walking distance to the bus terminal. I'll only have about an hour and a half around supper time and would still need time to get on my proper bus and everything. I don't want anything fancy or sit down stye. Maybe a good pizza place or take out sushi or some good homemade burgers?

  1. Haven't tried it but there's a place in the NYT building across the street called Schnipper's Quality Kitchen that reportedly has decent burgers etc. Not sure what its hours are but I'd go there....

      Didn't bobby flay filmed his show there? I'd try their sloppy joe.

        Schnipper's makes a good burger, and I also like their sweet potato fries with maple dipping sauce. (you can grab a beer there if you are so inclined)
        Decor--think of a very large, very clean White Castle.

        1. There is a very good Greek restaurant across from the Pt Auth on 42nd - Daphne. They have souvlaki etc sandwiches on their menu (and seem to be hurting for customers, which is a shame, since everything we've had here has been excellent).

              Go, it really is very good. And dying from the location. People are nice, and the prices very reasonable ($20.00 for a beautifully-done grilled bronzino with potato and greens).

              Oh, I concur! The seafood brochette is especially good. A very warm and helpful staff.

            3. Lazzara's for pizza, Sandwich Planet for burgers and sandwiches, Shorty's for cheesesteaks. Pick a Pita for falafel and shwarma.
