I second and third Penny’s suggestion. This is probably the ONLY restaurant penny and I agree on.

Very true, the banana pudding is delish!  Trax bar/restaurant has great food and is next to LIRR ticket windows....

If you have the time and the funds for something more than 'fast-food', I'll pay it forward, and recommend this restaurant that I learned about in an earlier thread on this same topic right here....It is just a few blocks away from Penn Station....

The Tracks Lounge just to the east of the LIRR ticket windows.
Long bar, fresh oysters, and clam chowder in a bread bowl if you like seafood.

So how was it? Looks so much better than the usual Doughminos or PlasticJohns. We have a couple by-the-slice places here but they really only make two kinds of pies. If you order anything other than cheese or pepperoni they simply add your toppings to an already baked cheese slice.  Which means the moment you pick it up the toppings all fall off and then you're back to a cheese slice at twice the price.  <_<

Were the steaks especially tasty and flavorful?  The photos give it a lot of character but at first glance the menu seems a bit overpriced.  I know it's NYC but $18 for an iceberg wedge with tomatoes and bacon?  I'm not uncomfortable paying extra for a truly exceptional meal but it's not like lettuce and pork are scarce ingredients and there's only so much culinary sophistication you can add to a conventional lettuce wedge.  Makes me wonder how much the other items might be marked up.

keens is a very good steakhouse. The thing about that area is that there are so many good choices at almost all price points, cuisines, and restaurant types from hole in the wall to top shelf. The 5 years I worked in that area were a time of major weight gain.

My meal there consisted of the 'wedge', the 12 oz. filet, and fries.....certainly nothing sophisticated, but this 'meat and potatoes' guy was very satisfied....I highly recommend it....I would put it against any of the well-known Manhattan steak houses, and I've tried a good sampling of them....

Depending on how much time you have and how far you want to walk, Hill County has some really great BBQ at good prices. It’s one of my all time favorite restaurants https://hillcountry.com/nyc/

I've been to supreme several times and highly recommend it. Pretty sure it's the best by-the-slice place I've been to in NYC..  and it was rated #1 by the blogger who literally tried every NYC pizza place several years ago. 

 

They have several different types of pies.. my favorite is the eggplant pizza... it's crazy good... if you're into that kind of thing. ha.

VIA: - Canadian*

 

Iowa Pacific - Hoosier State*, and City of New Orleans Pullman*.
