I woke up hungry today and got to thinking of the great breakfast at Niko's greek restaurant across the street and a half-block from the Beacon. We also love the Fairway Market across the street from the hotel as a quintessential NY/Manhattan grocery store than does not have an inch to spare anywhere. And of course, Patsy's italian Restaurant a few blocks away.
Where do you like to eat when at the Beacon-and I said eat, LOL, plenty of beer at Yogi's etc.

We always go to La Caridad before showtime (diagonal to Beacon). Don't let the idea of Cuban Chinese be off-putting. It's great food, easy on the wallet and you can be in and out in 15 minutes! For some really quick fare, check out Rice Bowl on Broadway between 72nd and 71st. Pan-Asian fast food. And the King of ALL BEACON EATS! Gray's Papaya! Best Hot Dog in the WORLD

i like to eat about a thousand wings at Blondies before at least one show (though its sometimes tough to get a seat with college basketball and their march madness)

I will second this statement. Recession Special with kraut and mustard and a banana daiquiri. I feel like going there right now.

I have never been to Gray's Papaya. I will make it my quest to get there this year.

Another suggestion: Big Nicks, a greasy spoon dive with just about anything you can think of to eat. They have this gigantic hamburger on a gigantic bun that'll clog your colon until May!

I've said this on at least 1 other thread, but as a New Yorker born and raised 10 blocks from the Beacon, I know the area pretty well. If you want a great sandwich before showtime, go to Lenny's Gourmet or Lenny's Cafe. The Cafe is a trendy place on 74th and Columbus, so very close too. I would recommend Joe's Combo (roast beef, turkey, swiss, onions, horseradish, lettuce tomato) or any of the hot sandwiches, especially the Teriyaki Grilled Chicken. Not listed on the menu but known by the people in the know is the Smoked Chicken Deluxe (chicken cutlet, pastrami, smoked fresh mozzarella, lettuce, tomato pickles), probably my favorite sandwich. And don't be fooled, you can make your own sandwich as well. I'm tellin you people, try it out. Lenny's Gourmet (84th and Columbus), the original, has been around the corner from me ever since I was born. My friends ask me why I find it difficult to eat sandwiches in Philly. Lenny's is why.

For a quick bite, there's H&H Bagels. No relation to Macon's H&H, but a funny coincidence and there's one near the Beacon.

After a couple stops in the Village, especially Mr. Dennehy's, Blondie's will be looking pretty good. Went there before the Mule show in Dec, real good bar food.

H+H is great for breakfast, best bagels in the city. Try the bialis. If you're in the mood to spend, Ruby Foo is a really fun place, asian fusion I believe they call it. Also around the Beacon: Empire Szechuan Kyoto, the only Chinese restaurant ever to have a sushi bar. Ollie's has good Chinese also.

I now remember your post since it was/is so specific! I guess I am also starting to rev up with the Beacon in sight!

dmiller -- Lenny's is fantastic! I haven't been in years, but a couple of good friends used to live around the corner and I ate many a meals there!

For those looking to go a little further, I also recommend McHales in Hells Kitchen... they have the sickest burgers... they're HUGE!

Big Nicks Burgers and Pizza is the best deal around - you get a load of food, and its great, and it certainly isnt pricey.
