Big Adventure's Big Guide of Things to See & Do in NYC - Fantastic Food Options Continued

The Big Adventure recently hosted an event in NYC that brought scores of people to town. We had gathered some recommendations of various places to see and go for first time visitors and seasoned travelers alike. In the end, we had a list of restaurants, bars, activities, and museums  that are unique to New York City,relatively inexpensive and eye-opening. In short, A Big Adventure "Best Of" list. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some of our suggestions here…

Fantastic Food Options Continued
Café Lalo
201 W. 83rd Street (between Broadway and Amsterdam)

The Serendipity of the Upper West Side, but with much more charm and fewer people in line. Lalo’s huge menu offers a European variety of desserts and treats. Food is only okay, but the iconic setting for the scene in “You’ve Got Mail” and closely packed tables, make it the epitome of a New York Café.

Alice’s Tea Cup
3 locations:  102 W. 73rd (between Amsterdam and Columbus), 156 E. 64th Street (at Lexington Avenue), and 220 E. 81st Street (between 2nd and 3rd)

Though no connection to movie or TV, this is a cute place for Tea and Finger Sandwiches. When entering, you really do feel like you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole to Alice’s Wonderland. A lovely spot and the perfect place for afternoon tea and snacks.

Gray’s Papaya
2090 Broadway (at W. 72nd Street)

Got $2.75 in your wallet? Then you can eat like a King at Gray’s Papaya Dog! If you feel the financial burden of visiting NYC, take advantage of their recession special and enjoy cheap NYC Hot Dogs and drinks. No frills, just lots of lights, big signs and endless hot dogs.

Lombardi’s Pizza
32 Spring Street (between Mott St. and Mulberry St.)

THE Original New York City pizza. 7 of 10 locals agree that this is tops in town (no easy feat). Located just north of Little Italy, this place has a history as rich as their wood burning oven, thin crust pies. Note that you can only order full pizzas and, again, there may be a wait. A tip: Gatsby’s Bar down the block and across the street will allow you bring pizza in and dine while enjoying their drinks.

Coming on Friday- Some Fast Food Dishes served in the best NYC Style...
