DA, the slices I had were very good. Messy but good. And I paid a decent price too. For 2 slices of pepperoni and a large coke it was $11.50. Which IMO for NYC is a good price.

When I go, I get one slice of mushroom pizza (and no drink since I always have water with me).  I pay $4.50.  Up until about a year ago it was $4.00.  They do not take credit cards for purchases under $10.00 and they do not sell beer, but their pizza is great.

When I had a layover in New York, I ate at Macy*s, which is just a couple blocks away.  There is an Italian restaurant with views of the Empire State Building, and four food trucks plus a bar-and-grill in the basement.

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/

Penny, I normally have two slices of pizza no matter where I go. I think for the first time I could have gotten away with one. But either way the price for 2 slices and a large soda for NYC is a great price!

I completely forgot about the one in NYC, or only ever ordered from/eaten at the one in DC. Would typically use Uber Eats to deliver it, in fact.

And I told you the pudding was good! After I slipped off the diet...I'd end up going up there at least twice a month when passing through on 178 on Mondays. If it was a real bad day I'd order Shake Shack when in Newark, and stop at Magnolia on the way back to the train.

I love 'Food Gallery 32'. It's a Korean food court with plenty of choices. There's bubble tea, Korean BBQ, Ramen, soup, various desserts. Here's the yelp page: https://www.yelp.com...ery-32-new-york

I forgot the one place that I go into Penn station for lunch, Shake Shack.


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I live in NY, so my pre-departure meal at NY Penn is always Shake Shack. :) When elsewhere, I always eat at a local joint.
