Chinese on Christmas Day, during 5-hour JFK Layover

I also received a suggestion to eat at China Chalet at 47 Broadway. It is within 10 minutes walking distance of our hotel. A search here for "China Chalet" didn't turn up anything current, but maybe I'm not proficient yet with the search function. Any opinions on China Chalet would be appreciated! Thanks!

Chinese on Christmas Day, during 5-hour JFK Layover

Hello all! Previous Lurker here that has always been able to get answers here when planing travel. Until today.

This time, I only found the OP's question. I am jumping in and hijacking his post because HawaiiFoodGuy might have read my mind (thank you sir).

We're headed east for Christmas in Manhattan this year to tie the knot after 30 years. We arrive 25th and depart 28th. We've both been to NYC on business multiple times, but this is the 1st trip together and not on the company dime.

Our hotel is at Wall and Water Streets near city hall, but we can head anywhere on the island that you send us. We'd love to hear your favorite places to get your Christmas Chinese fix in Manhattan. Cantonese or Schezwan are our favs. Clean dives are a-ok. We'd love to be able to make a reservation wherever we're going.

As long as I'm here... On the 26th we're catching the Book of Mormon matinee. If you'd share any place you have eaten a great but not too expensive dinner within walking distance of the Eugene O'Neill Theatre (230 West 49th Street), we'd be much obliged. Anything but Chinese since I'm assuming we'll get our fix the night before.

Thanks for taking time to read and respond:)
