    I am always on the hunt for great places to eat in NYC and it seems as if we have quite a few NYC dwellers here. Any one have some favorite spots you want to share?

    Carmines on 44th in the theater district.

    Best restaurant in the city.

    Bring your appetite.

    It's family style Italian and they're famous for the Porterhouse for two.

    The drinks are huge and be prepared to wait for a table.

    Aperitivo - 56th bet. 5th & 6th. 212-765-5155

    It is the best unknown restaurant in NYC on the west side, in my opinion....if you have a lot of money to spend! :)

    The veal chop is the best of the best, about 3 inches thick. The pasta dishes are also authentic and wonderful, no matter what you choose....it is very small, maybe 20 tables, so it is not loud and crazy, you have to make reservations, especially if you are eating late, which most business people do.

    For lunch, I would recommend the Stage door Deli.....the corn beef on rye, it is at least 5 inches high! You will have to share it, because it can not be eaten by one person alone! Matt and I sat near Howie Mandel the last time we ate there! It is on Broadway and around 49th street I believe....

    Stage Door Deli
    1600 Broadway, New York, NY 10019-7413 (212) 262-4817

    I'm partial to Balthazar for french bistro and Cipriani Downtown for contemporary italian and cool people watching.

    for deli -- 2nd Ave Deli if that's your druthers.

    greek -- milos on 55th st.

    breakfast on the quick... Manatus in the West Village.'

    and make sure you hit Pinkberry for frozen yogurt.

    I'm sure i'll think of a bunch of others.
