Brooklyn Bridge

Wow, I love Chowhound...you all have been so helpful. We are from SLC and I am going to go on this every once in a while and help folks visiting us. I wish we were going on Sunday, sounds like fun...maybe another time. :)

Thanks! I love your honesty. I'm sorry to hear the joints you recommended are not open for lunch maybe another time.

Thanks for the info. Your comments were just what I needed. I had heard of Grimaldi's but from the post on chow I was a little hesitant so looked into other options, hence Bubby's, I really appreciate your comments.

We will definitely save room for Jacques Torres. :)

Does NY have good steaks?

I always think of NY as the place to go for ethnic food, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, etc....I never think the classic steak. But I heard Frankie and Johnnies Steakhouse is very good, affordable and has a neat atmosphere. Should I trust my reports?

Great NY pizza (and ice cream)

Where do we go for a great NY pizza? I heard both Patsy's Pizzeria and Celeste were the places to go. Also where do either of these places have killer ice cream shops nearby?

China Town/Little Italy

Where do we go for good food and the whole NY experience in Little Italy and China Town? We are looking for more on the go food so we can take in more of the city...or should we plan a whole day in this section of the city?

My daughter (12) and I will be in NY next week and hope to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. We thought we would take a train to the Brooklyn side, grab a bite to eat and walk the bridge toward Manhattan. We heard Bubby's Pie Company was very good. We just want to experience NY is this a good choice?
