Our room at the Warwick was spacious and comfortable. It was extremely clean and the staff were very helpful. The hotel has an excellent location near Rockefeller Center, the MOMA, 5th Avenue and other midtown attractions, but there were never any problems with noise or crowds during my stay.

Bella Ferrara has a cafe on one side and walk-in, take-out bakery on the other side. It is located just north of Canal Street in Little Italy and has the best pastries I have ever encountered in any country.

Havana Central Times Square

Restaurant | "Havana Central"

Quote:
On weekend nights the front of Havana Central often features a band and salsa dancing. In the back order Latin American or Spanish food such as black bean soup, paella, and churros (all good, though some of the food is less spicy than Cuban food often is). The bar is known for its mojitos, which come in several flavors and claim to be the best in the city.
