Quote: Things I like to do and places I like to eat.

Tuscan Square


The food was excellent. I had the Veal Scalloping, my children had the lasagna that was very good, my wife Marcy had the salmon that was overcooked.The service was not good for the price they neglected to take my 10-year old sons drink order, and getting the waiter 's attention was very difficult.
The atmosphere for an Italian Restaurant in NY, it was very cold and impersonal. Highly unlike most Italian Restaurants in New York. Save your money and time and go somewhere else.

The atmosphere is warm and inviting!  Which is rare for a restaurant in NYC. This is a great reasonably priced restaurant that serves pub style and Irish/Continental style food. It is very close to the mid town theaters, off 8th Ave. Service can be slow but they will put a rush on for you if you tell the waiter you are trying to make a show.
Some recommended dishes are the bangers and mash, the fish and chips, the quiche, the chicken ceased salad and of coarse the hamburgers. This is a kid friendly place.

Music Box Theatre

Attraction | "The Vertical Hour"

This is a well done intellectual play staring Julian Moore. This Play Just opened up and it is a must see for all. Do not sit in the back 2 rows of the orchestra the seats are narrow and close to the row in front of them.

Met Hugh Jackman (Wolverine from the X-Man movie) in the theater! He is very nice.
