Anyone know the name of the new restaurant on the SE corner of 42nd and 8th? I believe it starts with an O. Is it any good? I could swear it wasn't there last week, so it must be brand new.

  1. In that location I'm guessing... Olive Garden?

      Nope. Olive Garden has been in Times Square quite a while. There's a new restaurant across from the Port Authority on the corner of 42nd & 8th. Will look into it.

    2. I got it! I citibiked by, it's called Urbo and next door is Urbo Grind.... Haven't been- i vote you go and report how many tourists per sq inch there are and if the food doesn't suck ;)

        Yes! That's the one! You saved me a trip to the part of Manhattan I dislike the most. Many thanks!

          Wow, I'm very impressed that you were able to look elsewhere while crossing that intersection.

          If I'm reading it right, this place is owned by Vladimir Putin. Chevys across the street is in deep trouble

            I got stuck at the red light- otherwise there was no way, those cabbies aim for me i swear!!

            And unless chevy's stops serving huge toxic drinks for cheap at happy hour they've got nothin' to worry about.....
