We rode the subway quite a bit the last couple days, I don't remember much overweight people
We ate at Carmines (twice) - some great chicken with mushrooms and marsala over angel hair pasta. Didn't really like the cheesecake tho, tasted more like custard than cheese. We ate at Carnegie Deli - great pastrami sandwich, tho the carrot cake some lady next to us insisted on sharing with us was a little dry. Both places served portions big enough for 2 people to share one order
We ate at the san gennaro feast
- some great pizza, mozzareppa's and canoli. Plus we tried some street vendor's hotdogs on wall street, 56th and 5th (thos was late at night and some guy who billed himself as NYC's best Barry White impersonator had setup his own little concert - we ate the hotdog and sat and listened in front of the radio city music hall
). We had breakfast every morning at a place on 8th and 46th called 'rendevous on time square' - great little cafe run by possibly italian or hispanic brothers with excellent taste and very little money.
Our hotel in NYC was 1/2 block from time square, we really enjoyed the whole experience.
In philly we walked one afternoon to Geno's right before that Monday Night Football game between the eagles and the vikings, went through a lotta rough-looking neighborhoods to get there but it was worth it. Seemed like half of philly was there in their eagles jerseys heading to the game.
They have some great restaurants and cafe's on market street as well. Loved the cheesesteak sandwich and cheesefries at geno's
We walked back up 9th through the closing outdoor market and the fish smell was pretty strong
We found a few great places in DC just by wandering around and stopping to try them out. The corner bakery was good, as was the fish market by the water (great chowder, most fish was to be taken home to cook tho), Clyde\'s in Georgetown
- the food was good, tho service a little slow, they were swamped on a sunday night. The georgetown bagelry had great pizza and breakfast bagels.
We got to go to the cowboys/redskins game Monday night - we drove over there and by the time the game started the scalpers were selling tickets at face value
There weren't a whole lotta cowboy fans there, but we sure enjoyed the win
