How is Ben Ash Delicatessen still in business?

Why you ask?...it's because of the tourists.
With the Carnegie Deli temporarily closed and the Stage Deli shutdown years ago,
many tourists do not know to head downtown to Katz's or the Second Avenue Deli.

The majority of the Yelp posters are from out of town.
They want to experience a true NYC deli...little do they know.

I hope none of the 50+ lost their tickets...LOL

Shorts! - And Reservation Timing Help

If you both are wearing "walking" shorts...Bermuda length with a nice top...sure

but if she is wearing "Daisy Dukes" - super short shorts...definitely not tasteful
avoid flip flops and socks with sandals!

try to have some class

why Phantom of the Opera?...so many other better shows on Broadway.

Casual Post-Yankees Game Steakhouse in Manhattan

Will this be a Saturday or Sunday game day?
Only asking because you will be dressed very casually and some places might
not allow you in wearing shorts, t-shirts and sneakers.

Budget...including drinks, tip and tax?

17th birthday dinner nice restaurant

check out HILL COUNTRY
http://www.hillcountryny.com/locations

they have a downstairs room at 30 W. 26th Street

you can contact their catering/events person to discuss your budget
and see what you can get for $600. (Is the $600 your final final total
OR is that the food & beverage total BEFORE tax and tip are added.

)

You might want to think of having a buffet set-up.

Do you have a certain part of the city in mind?
Uptown...Downtown...East Side...West Side...Chinatown?

Birthday cake

I know you prefer the West Side, but, in my opinion, the best NYC bakery for birthday cakes is Two Little Red Hens on Second Ave, between 85th & 86th Sts.

Great variety, great taste. Worth every penny.
