My new job is in Times Square. What to eat for lunch? I'm a native NY'er, not a tourist.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Much appreciated.

I'm a native NY'er, not a tourist. I do not willing venture near Times Square. But fate has brought me a new job right smack in Times Square, 43rd and B'way.

What am I to do? I won't have time to stroll over to Hell's Kitchen everyday and I don't cook frequently enough at home to solve this problem by bringing home cooked left overs.

Any suggestions for realistic, daily options, that don't break the bank (not over $10 please) and taste good, relatively healthy?

Thanks!

Christmas dinner at a restaurant in Baltimore? Suggestions, please, I beg you!

Hi,
I'll be in Baltimore for Christmas and need to find an open restaurant either in the city or the suburbs near Towson. It doesn't need to be a foodie place, but it does need to be nicer than a diner ;)
One of the attendees is a 75 year old woman with a narrow palate (did I spell that right), so choices like Indian food are totally out of the question.

I'm not familiar with Baltimore at all, so if you have a suggestion, please mention the neighborhood or address.

Thanks so much!

COOKBOOK RECOMENDATION FOR YOUNG, BEGINNING BUT SERIOUS COOK

Check out Alton Brown's I'm Just Here For the Food. It explains how things work. For a long time I followed recipes not understanding why things were done this way or that, this book helped me understand why.
