When did Friday's on 604 5th Ave open?

Until 2001, I used to work at Rockefeller Center and frequented the Barnes & Noble that used to be next door. Friday's has been there long before 2001.
For quite a while, they were the only restaurant on Fifth Ave. above 42nd St.

Are you flying in from the west coast? Doesn't the redeye usually get into JFK around 5:30 - 6 a.m. ? Lunch won't be until 11:30 - 12 noon.
Will your wife be able to wait that long?

Honeymoon meal

When in September? What are your likes and dislikes?
Where are you staying?

The United Nations General Assembly totally cripples midtown, the east side and upper east side. This year's dates are from Sept. 15 - 28. Every head of state + Obama + (I believe) the Pope will be attending. Streets are closed down and traffic is at a complete standstill.

Fashion week is from Sept. 10 - 17
Designers, models and fashionistas invade NYC

Lunch Between Penn Station and the Barrymore Theater

You timing is a bit tight.
If the train is on time you might not get to a restaurant until 12:30.
If the show begins at 2, you should be at the theatre by 1:45.

The Barrymore Theatre is on W. 47th Street between 7th & 8th Ave.

check out:

Have you thought about taking an earlier train?

The best casual Mexican and Vietnamese in Glendale/Burbank/Hollywood area

Two NY'ers will be visiting sunny and warm LA next weekend.
ISO the tastiest Mexican and Vietnamese restaurants for a very casual, moderately priced delicious dinner. We both love spicy food. Are not drinkers, beverage of choice is a Diet Coke. Just want something to wake up our frozen NYC tastebuds.
