Suggestions - staying at 38th and (i think 9th) over Thanksgiving weekend
Are there any good neighbourhood places around there for breakfast and dinner. Staying at an apt so would also like to know of bodega close by?
You will be pretty close to Koreatown, so do a search on this board for previous threads discussing Koreatown options. Madangsui (preferably for galbi/bulgogi) and Don's Bogam are my favorite Korean barbecue places.
I also agree with pbjluver on Hell's Kitchen: Just walk up 9th Av. to the 40s and 50s. Do a search on Hell's Kitchen, 9th Av., and pre-theater for relevant threads. Lately, I've been really liking Gazala Place, a little Druse Israeli restaurant on 9th between 48th and 49th:
