Not to miss during visit

We are from south florida. Have heard of "deep dish" (UNO's) but stuffed crust sounds like my son. We do travel, so we like ethnic foods. Only tried Indian food once. Just left San Francisco, good Chinese!

you are correct as to location. Child is late teens. Yes we are "tourist" and this is a first visit. Will be doing the "tourist" things. We don't mind and upscale dinner a few times.

Help! Northend Italian. Ideas?

My wife insists we eat at a northend Italian place during visit. Her brother had a wonderful meal there.

Visit to NYC

HELP! Going to New York with know-it-all brother in law.
Need to have some ideas. He leans toward BBQ, I want Italian.
Friends mentioned Blue Smoke and a small place named Tappo.
Any comments or other ideas?
