Midtown Food part 2

I'm being very philosophical these days, hope you faithful readers don't mind. I think soon I'll have to blog about what it's like to work after not working for 8+ years (hint: it helps when you adore your job). April 2 it'll be a year !!!! How's that for fast?! Wake up, the Buddha said! Life is passing you by!

Sent this to a couple of folks from work who were in NYC this past weekend. Feel free to add your own:

When I eat out in NYC, good food trumps hype every time, so this list reflects that, for the most part.

Meskerem -- ETHIOPIAN
68 W. 47th St., New York, NY 10036
at Tenth Ave.

1250 Broadway off E. 32nd near Herald Square -- WORTH THE TRIP !!!! Go upstairs and pig out. Fine with just two but really fun with a big group. It fills up early but turnover is pretty quick.
New York, NY 10001-3701
Phone: (212) 564-6845

Molyvos -- GREEK, more expensive and fancy
871 Seventh Ave., New York, NY 10019
nr. 55th St.

Uncle Nick's -- GREEK, cheaper
747 9TH Ave
New York, NY 10019-6617
Phone: (212) 245-7992

Lever House -- FANCY -- I had a friend who's husband is the chef but haven't eaten there, actually
390 Park Ave., New York, NY 10022 at 53rd St.

Trattoria dell'Arte -- UPSCALE ITALIAN
900 Seventh Ave., New York, NY 10019
at 57th St.

150 W. 46th St., New York, NY 10036
nr. Sixth Ave.

Coupla more places: That famous bbq place in the W. 40s, like 43rd or 44th, used to be really good even though it was famous and popular. It's just off Times Square so just walk up the west side of Broadway and look to your right, you can't miss it. Something like Bubba's. [what's the name, David? Dave?]

Another place -- I remember the address but not the name -- has cheap but good Brazilian place at 123 W. 45th (1-2-3-4-5). Sunday nights at SI, when we worked overnight, a bunch of us got takeout from there. It was good. Dave's parents always ate there before the theater.

John's Pizza off Central Park near Lincoln Center is a great place post- Natural History museum visits.
