Thank you to everybody who has replied, I've enjoyed your comments, this is better than Facebook. And yes, Ray had a lot of Flair.

recommendations needed for MURRAY HILL and surrounding area.

You didn't mention Indian, but there are many Indian restaurants on Lexington Ave starting around 24th St and going uptown

A depressing ripoff mistake

We live near Union Square. My daughter, age 12, and I decided to try TGI Friday's for a Saturday lunch, thinking it would be a fun and tasty nod to suburbia. Not so. $4 for tea. $17 for a sandwich. Lower quality and worse taste than any other place I can think of. It made McDonald's seem like a four-star restaurant, and McDonald's doesn't cost $26 per person. Never ever again.
But the waiter, Ray, was very nice.
