Places to eat around Union Square?

Staying near Union Square this weekend. Need suggestions for good eats in the area. Any suggestions from cheap, pricey, fancy to casual are welcome. I just want suggestions for good food. Walking distance around that area would be ideal.

Thanks!

Kitchen 24 ?

Yea....i'd say if you REALLY REALLY wanted to try this place. Come back at the end of the year. I went yesterday a little before 3P. Seriously..there weren't THAT many ppl in there. I heard about this place on a website called Daily Candy and their online menu looked really yumy.

My friend and I got there, were seated immediately and thus began our 2 hour waiting game. We were on the verge of walking out several times. We didn't have our order taken for about 20mins. When we flagged the waiter down he basically told us that HE wasn't ready to take our order yet. Okkayy..Strike 1. We sat and waited more. Finally he came back my friend wanted to order the BBQ brisket sandwich. He said they ran out and that's why nearly half their menu had little sticker labels covering menu items too. He told us that they ran out of almost everything. Strike 2. I ordered the corn beef hash and my friend got the meatball sandwich. Ordered our food at 4:15. Didn't get anything until 5. Who the hell runs their restaurant like this?! Who first of all runs out of food, second of all, continues to seat people knowing that they can't even push out a frickin meal in a reasonable amount of time?! The manager made his rounds to apologize for the wait but we were already fed up. We kept asking our waiter if he can just cancel it because no food is worth that kind of wait and he just kept lying saying our order is next to be made...5 more mins...5 more mins he kept coming back telling us this. Finally right when we grabbed our bags to leave he came out with the food. Strike 3. Corned beef hash?! Yea not really. It was basically vegetable soup with cubes of ham and a fried egg on top. It wasn't bad tasting...but definitely not what I expected and ABSOLUTELY NOT worth the wait. I felt sorry that our waiter had to feel the wrath of two starving cranky girls ready to scratch someone's eyes out but he kept lying to us about the real wait time of the food. After he noticed we were seriously pissed off he was more attentive to us. Basically told us to blame the kitchen. The excuses consisted of: all the ppl in the place got seated within 10mins of each other and there's a small kitchen to work with. Ok but umm isn't that something you should know how to handle when you open up a restaurant? This place is a disaster.

The only plus side if they ever get their shiet together? Good sweet potato fries. But you can get good ones at a place like Yardhouse...in 10mins.

Btw, we still had to pay full price for the meal and crappy service. Not that it's expensive or anything but 2 HOURS?! I might as well have just gotten some canned corned beef hash from the market and fried it myself. At least it has some sort of beef in it...not ham.

Best NYC "steals"

I'm going to be in NY for about 1 wk and am looking for the best deals in town (e.g. prix fixes, reasonable prices for amazing food, anything ppl think is a great deal for food). I know it might be overkill to ask but I wanted to get a thread going that sort of compiles the billions of "best of" threads into one question.

Suggestions for the best amazing most delicious goodness eateries Manhattan has to offer. Preferably not in the upper west (it's out of the way for me). Price range: $0-$90/pp

Btw, what is the thing going on at The Met in the evenings all about? Is it just a restaurant that opens on the roof?

Best dishes at Slanted Door

I've been reading some of the older topics on Slanted Door. Not meaning to offend anyone or anything, but I have reservations for lunch this Friday. I don't really care if it's authentic whatever cuisine nor do i want suggestions for other places to eat because I have to go there regardless. Can someone give me suggestions on what some of the better dishes are at this place?

UFO Ice Cream Sandwichy Goodness?

I've tried Scoops. I think it's more the look of the shop that lures you in. I really only had an ice cream cone but it wasn't that appetizing when I saw the nice lady behind the counter grab an ice cream scooper and with her hand that had some dirty bandaids on her fingertips scooped the ice cream into the cone...the candy in the store also looked a bit old.

UFO Ice Cream Sandwichy Goodness?

ok so i've been reading up on old threads about It's It ice cream sandwiches. Unfortunately i've never had the original so bay area peeps--don't be insulted that i'm asking for UFOs. I used to work in Glendale and the lobby store in my building would sell UFOs and i'm sitting in my cube right now with a HUGE craving for that sucker.. : (

Any one know where I can find UFOs for sale at the market or wherever? I work out in Studio City and live in Monrovia so anywhere along that 134 and 210 stretch of freeway would be perfect!
