RE: Big Nick's in Manhattan
I used to get up to that area quite a bit in the early 80's. They used to have flyers written by an excellent PR guy (well, more accurately a good b------t artist) extolling the virtues of the place. I always considered it a roadside Greek diner that was somehow shoehorned into a couple of Manhattan storefronts. Visitors to NYC probably have never seen anything like it and marvel at the size of the menu. I have never thought their burgers or pizza were much different than from the average Manhattan Greek restaurant/coffee shop.
