jhk14, come on along and we'll take you to...the lullaby of Broadway!  Okay, maybe not the Milford Plaza!  Sorry I couldn't resist!  See you at Carnegie Deli.

    Sounds like a great day, I would love to be there.  Looking forward to the trip report.  And, I may go up to NYC on a bus some weekend and shamelessly usurp your itinerary!

        This is your Roadfood Captain speaking:

        One last update before we "Nosh it out" on Saturday.  Here is the list of attendees so far:

        Billyboy
        TnTinCT - 2
        Foodosaurus (+3?) -
        Hot Dog King
        Lexi (+1)
        jhk14 (not able to attend-we'll catch you on the next one!)
        Joanna (+1) - my friend from work
        Claude - a friend of mine from Montreal

        If I've forgotten anyone or others want to join in just let me know.  Half of the places are cash only and the other half have minimums for credit cards, so the moral of the story here is...BRING CASH!!  :)

        The forecast is calling for sunny skies and a high of 70 degrees with a light breeze of about 5mph and no rain predicted.  Comfortable walking shoes and bottled water are recommended for maximum comfort.  

        Public restrooms are located in most nearby Starbucks franchises should you need them. 

        We'll start cruising the not-so-mean streets of the city at Murray's Bagels at 500 6th Avenue at 13th Street at 10:00am.  Some of the people on the list are just meeting us for lunch at Carnegie Deli, so part of the plan is to get there at 12 noon to join them.
         
        UPDATE 03/19/10 - If anyone reading this wants to join us at the Carnegie Deli, please let me know so that I may get a head count in case I need to make a reservation.  I called them already and I fudged a bit saying we had 15 when it's really closer to 10 people.  They don't have a table to reserve at 12 noon tomorrow, but they advised me to call 30 minutes before we get there and they may be able to set something aside if it isn't too busy.

        I tried to pick places that:
        A.) have classic/iconic NYC foods,
        B.) that I personally like (with the exception of Carnegie as I have never been there),
        C.) are such that you could go there and get just one thing or a sample and not feel the pressure to eat a whole meal.  I figure that concept would make it easier to make more stops.  In half of these places you can buy foods to go (bagels, donuts, dumplings).  Bring a bag of some sort if you want to take provisions home with you.  We can share at Carnegie if people are cool with that. 

        With the exception of Carnegie Deli, the stops on this tour are fairly small in size (Gem Spa actually does not have any seating as it is a bodega that happens to sell egg creams), so we may have to jockey/be assertive for table space.  I'll whip you all into walking, talking, cursing, acting, eating, breathing (okay, maybe not breathing.  I mean, really, who WANTS to breathe NYC air?  Seriously.) city dwellers before you know it!  Just wanted to let you all know. 

        Please move your trays into the upright position, turn ON your electronic devices and use them should you need to reach me.  I know we'll have a pleasant day and thanks for choosing Billyboy Tours!!

          In the true spirit of the NCAA tournament, you're going to need someone a lot bigger than Lexi to "box out" to help get a table at Vanessa's!

            Geez...are you sure New York can handle an assertive group of people? New Yorkers are way too laid back to know what to do when confronted with assertive people trying to get table space. 


            This sounds like a great trip. I'm not sorry that I'm going to be in Pittsburgh this weekend, but I am sorry to miss out on this. Can't wait to see the trip report.

              Oh Captain, My Captain! Digging the itin, going to be a beautiful first day of spring for the NY Nosh. We're headed in early, so expecting to be meeting for bagels reasonably near the start time. We'll give you a buzz if running late.  Terri & Tim

                  Billyboy - I'm sorry to say that I won't be able to make it now.  My friend in Queens flaked on me, and there is no way we'd be able to get down there early enough now.  Have a great time, and think of me while drinking a chocolate egg cream.

                       Will do.  I'll have an extra egg cream and donut in your stead!

                        Sorry folks, the NYC Roadfood Meet-Up this Saturday March 20 has been postponed until a later date.  Maybe we can look at a Saturday or Sunday in April?  My apologies for any inconvenience.

                                  Anybody can join in.  I won't be available the next few weekends, but I'll look at my calendar this weekend and propose a few new dates.

                                    probably depends on your definition of insider. As long as you don't talk about the Yankees or Madonna you should be fine.

                                      Considering I'm a Mets fan and have no desire to talk about washed up singers, I don't think that should be a problem :)

                                        Let us know new dates, April is a bit out of control already ;-)  Since it was such a beautiful day, we headed down to the city anyway. Kinda glad it was postponed, since we didn't expect the HUGE delays driving we ran into from all the storm damage in the southern part of CT, and we would have been running really late to meet a group. We hit Katz's for pastrami, Ray's for a slice, and Vanessa's for dumplings. A little shopping, a little people watching - what a great way to spend the first day of spring. No pics this time around, but next time! (btw - Vanessa's was AMAZING - and the prices were ridiculous. $1.00 for four fresh-made dumplings? and the flavor has now spoiled me for anything local in our area here in CT - no comparison!)

                                          I'm sorry, but I'm glad it got postponed.  Now hopefully I can go.

                                          I did get down to Queens on Saturday.  We went to get sandwiches from Sorriso's Italian Pork Store .  We took the subway to Corona park right in view of Citi Field and some very low flying planes.  I had Hot Cappicola and Homemade Sopressata with fresh Mozzarella and roasted peppers on a hard roll.  It was a beautiful day.


                                          I have a wedding to attend on April 10th.  As of now, I think I'm available any other weekend next month.

                                            TnT, will do.  I hear ya on April.  I may have to look at May to reschedule!  Glad you could make it down anyway.  I had a feeling you might like Vanessa's.  Did you get to look through the window at the ladies making the dumplings?

                                            Foodosaurus, that sandwich sounds awesome!

                                              May 15th may be good for me, if it gets pushed back that far.

                                                I'm hoping we can get together in the next month or so to do this thing.  I've looked at some dates that work for me.  Please let me know if any of these dates are good for any of you as well:

                                                Sat. 05/29

                                                The weekend of 06/05-06/06 I'll be out of state and 06/12-06/13 is the NYC Big Apple BBQ Block Party which I plan on covering.

                                                  I'm good for 6/26 or 6/27.

                                                  Or Perhaps 7/10, 7/11.

                                                    Unfortunately, I won't be around on 7/10 or 7/11.  I've got a wedding to attend and I'm running a 15K in Utica, NY on the 11th.

                                                      Would love to come --  any of the June dates listed are good for me.

                                                        I'm no longer available on the 25th 26th.  I have an engagement party in MA to go to.

                                                          I thought you already went . . . keep me posted.  I might be able to do a June date - might be able to kidnap Beth too!
