Thanks Whitneybee. I am taking her yo Serendipity for the frozen hot chocolate & Dylan's Candy Bar too, but we may go to both of those even though MB isn't highly recommended. She can never have enough chocolate :)

Thanks Daver! This is helpful as we don't have plans a couple days.

These were other posts where they mentioned Patzeria being good, though I'm not going there now :)

Thanks Pan. The carts scare me as I've never experienced that before & wouldn't want to accidentally eat something with shellfish & die in the restaurant :( I will definitely look into DSGG :-)

No I have never done trip advisor so it wasn't there. I might have looked at another site though, maybe yelp or urban spoon. I have been working on compiling my list for about 2 weeks before I found this site. I wrote down names of places and then googled them. Lol. I'm glad I found CH though. This is awesome! Thanks so much again. No thoughts on John's?

I just saw your post about not liking it as well, but I also saw ppl stating that John's crust has no taste and the pizza isn't always that great...So now I'm thinking we may try Keste and also find some falafel carts. I read somewhere that Screme was good gelato. Any thoughts on them? Thanks again for all your help.

Thanks gforceny. I did search the threads, but wanted to make sure of recommendations
more specific to our trip. Some of those posts were looking for different types of meals and some were not as recent so I wasn't sure if anything changed with restaurants closing or chefs leaving etc... I actually saw a thread here that recommended Patzeria. LOL. Should we avoid this one? A friend said Max Brenner would be good, but I see ppl recommending Jacque Torres. I guess the latter is better?...
Thanks so much again. This will be her first trip so I want her to enjoy it. She also loves Disney channel shows for preteens. Not sure if any place caters to that.

Definitely not looking to spend $50 per person on lunch, maybe one night for dinner provided it's something I couldn't enjoy in Kentucky or nearby Chicago (where we are from originally). I don't really drink, some wine possibly, so $50 total for food at dinner is close to my max. Lunch I would say close to $25 goal. I'm allergic to shellfish while my daughter loves pizza, hamburgers, chicken dishes, some Chinese like lo mein, orange chicken, bbq spare ribs, sweet and sour chicken, bourbon chicken, and she Loves rice! She also enjoys bread, she could eat it all day. She is partial to cheeses preferring stronger tasting cheese and only cheese pizza. She loves sweets; ice cream, cakes, cookies, chocolate, gelato, cheese cake, but she likes fruits too. She eats pineapples, mandarin oranges, apples, and she won't eat peas. I love food so am open to try new things as long as it's not shellfish. I

Thanks for the suggestions Joanie :) I have done more searching thru the threads and added some places to our dining lists. I'm thinking Scotty's Diner for breakfast the day of our tour. They deliver to our hotel so that can help us save time, as we have to be in Times Square at 9:45AM. Other places I'm considering for breakfast during our 6 days are Penelope's, Ellen's Stardust Diner, Clinton Street Bakery Co. & Pershing Square.
For lunch/dinner I'm thinking Patzeria, John on Bleeker St., Russ & Daughter's, Katz, Jing Fong & some street cart dining. My only problem is if we go to Jing Fong I have a shellfish allergy so will we be able to order specific items or is it all off the cart?
Thanks again

Hello. My daughter and I will be in New York for 5 nights in April. We are staying at the Helmsly for 2 nights (arriving Sunday 7PM) and then the Empire Hotel. Neither place serves breakfast so I'm needing suggestions on where we should eat for meals during our stay. I was thinking of going to Serendipity3 for desserts on Sunday after check-in to get that out of the way as she has been raving about trying frozen hot chocolate. I personally could care less. On Monday we are doing a tour with NYSee tours and that will place us in Chelsea Market for lunch and ends in Times Square around 4PM. For dinner that night I'd prefer something not more than $50 since we will be shopping too. On Wednesday we are spending the day at AMNH, but will need suggestions on breakfast. I prefer to eat a healthy breakfast with protein & not lots of bread or carbs, my daughter likes pancakes & eggs as well. For dinner this night I'd like to stay under $50. Breakfast for the whole stay can be as much as $20, lunch $50 and dinner the other nights should stay near $50 for just the 2 of us. I don't want to worry about reservations, unless they're easy to make and not a month wait lol. Tuesday & Thursday I would also like recommendations on things to do and places to eat. We have no plans those days so we may just wonder around. My daughter wants to go to FAO Schwartz, Dylan's Candy Bar(not necessarily to eat a meal), & we will spend some time in Central Park once we move over to Empire Hotel. I know people say not to eat in Times Square because it's a tourist trap and we don't mind catching subway or bus to destinations though we are walkers too. Thanks for suggestions :-)
