Eating At Interop: 8 NYC Dining Options
5 Napking Burger is YUM! My favorite on the list. My favorite is the Italian Turkey Burger...and they are open until midnight. If you are into Mexican I reccommend Limon Jungle on 53rd and 9th...the drinks are GREAT too!

Re: Eating At Interop: 8 NYC Dining Options
@freespirintny25: Thanks for the additional recommendations! Ninth Ave. has truly turned into a food mecca. I used to live on 9th and 45th in the late 80s, when the area still deserved to be called Hell's Kitchen. I'm continually in awe of how much it has changed since then.

Re: White Castle?
@SusanN you're right; I shouldn't encourage fast food habits, especially when there are healthier options all around.

Re: White Castle?
@Ariella: I was only kidding with you. All things in moderation. It's funny, i rarely eat fast food but when I was in Tokyo some years back I found myself craving McDonald's. I think I was really craving some familarity, but a quick stop in definitely helped me overcome a touch of homesickness. :)

Re: White Castle?
@Susan true, food is something very much linked with what we find familiar and/or comforting.

So Hungry!
Susan, such a great list! I love eating in NYC - and knowing the spots close to Javits is key!

Re: NYC Dining Options
This list goes nicely with Dave's list of Geeky Interest Points from the other day (and I'm sure that was the intention), so great timing on that one. Let's be honest here - half the reason we go to any convention is for the food, and I'm certainly not talking about the ten dollar slices of pizza at the convention centers. In fact, I remember Curt  (Franklin) admitting  once that this was secretly his motivation for travelling all around the country to cover events - this was some time ago in the comments section back on Enterprise Efficiency, if I remember correctly.

At any rate, I'm a member of that club myself, and while I don't think I'll be attending Interop this year, I'm certainly salivating over these food options. They say New York is 'the city that never sleeps', and while all Dave's geek sites sounded great, I have to admit the main thing that expression brings to mind is how jealous I am of all the great food New Yorkers can probably get at all hours of the night. Where I live, I'm lucky to have a couple of questionable chinese places open after-hours. On  the other hand, they get all these great upscale sit-down places you list, too. Seems like a win-win.

Re: NYC Dining Options
@Zerox203: yes, you're right, Curtis did wax poetic about his fondness for food on e2. I was going to try and further complement Dave's geeky places with geeky restaurants, but I love good food too much to steer people to places where I can't personally vouch for the food quality. Hence this list.

New York is definitely the city that never sleeps...and never stops eating. hope you get to indulge in a visit sometime soon.
