We had a decent meal at a little French BYOW in the Waterfront section of Brooklyn which charged a corkage fee, unknown to us, even though the bottle was a screwtop.

We had an intersting meal at a Cuban-Chinese place near Columbus Circle that was indeed inexpensive huge servings but was rather insipid all told. The only pizza we had wasmnot to die for, but my bad, we chose a chain called Ray’s.

Wow, I'm not sure how someone can be disappointed by the food here. With constantly updated online professional reviews and laymen recs, I've found it's just about impossible to eat poorly in the MSA. If you eat bad Italian, French, American, Japanese or chinese in New York then I can't help you. You're just doing it very wrong. And more and more, good Mexican, Thai and Indian food are easy to find as well. I find some complaints about New York legit, but less-than-stellar-food is not one of them. Next time you come, reach out to me. I'll tell you where to go.

Hey montrealiste (and anyone else visiting), next time you're in NYC and you want great food, give Queens a try, especially Astoria/LIC (Ditmars Blvd. especially), Flushing, Jackson Heights and Sunnyside.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. By the way, what's this building? It's massive.

Eye candy abounds in this thread. Love the 3rd shot in the first post; One World Trade looks like a beacon. Thanks jens.
