Hard Rock NYC is a cool place for visitors and locals. Yes, there are now plenty of Hard Rock around the US and the world - but this one is iconic and features very cool memorbilia. If you are going to get a hat/tshirt - get the NYC one!
Pros: Great energy and cool place for music lovers. Great place for families and groups to chill and enjoy food in a fun atmosphere.
Cons: Some might think it is "touristy" to go to Hard Rock NYC, but everyone should make this a stop when in NYC for the first (or second time).
Once in your life you must have a meal at Tavern on the Green! Iconic and beautiful place to enjoy a great day or night.
Pros: Beautiful restaurant, great food and wonderful history. Great value and perfect before or after the theatre!
Cons: Can't think one - unless they are booked when you want to go.
It's everything would expect from a great family style Italian restaurant - big portions, loud, and filled with energy! Great place to go with a group or family.
Pros: Good value for group dining or with the family. Great location(s).
Cons: You might need to run for your table - it's always crowded - but worth the quick sprint to your table.
You can choose to stay here, grab lunch or at least visit at Christmas time because this is truly a magical hotel to visit any time - especially the weekend before Thanksgiving through December. The hotel is regal in every way!
Pros: It is iconic with adults and kids (there are kids movies around the holidays that feature this hotel), and a great place to grab lunch, take a stroll around the holidays, have a drink or even stay for a special weekend.
Cons: It is pricey for an overnight stay and there may be better deals during certain times of the year.

This is a cool neighborhood dive with a fun crowd! No pretension, just great little bar that gives you a high five when you enter. Love a good dive bar - this is it!
Pros: Friendly, chill, cool place to hang. Someone told me: "order a pizza from down the street and let the night just come to you..." . Cool vibe happening here!
Cons: They don't serve food but don't mind if you walk in with a pizza!
Is this pizza good? Oh yeah! Huge slices in a busy pizza restaurant that is filled with locals who know NYC pizza.
Pros: Lots of great toppings and great sauces make this a great choice for pizza lovers.
Cons: sometimes hard to find a table, but good stand up bar service
This a cool little with a friendly, fun vibe. Nothing pretentious, affordable and chill. Great place to grab a quick drink before a show. Reminds me of a Cheers bar!

Love Ray's Pizza! Giant slice of pizza that is a must eat for lunch, late night, or any time you visit NYC!
Pros: Lots of great options by the slice and thin sliced pizza the way NY pizza should be served! Opened late!
Cons: Probably not on a low carb diet - but worth the cheat day!
There are lots of fabulous hotels in NYC but if you have the chance to stay here, do it once. It is in center of all the action, with easy access to the Theatre district, very walkable to other areas, but the best is the rooftop, revolving restaurant. Make sure you have one drink there once in your life. Great view of the city - especially at night.
Pros: great location, and awesome rooftop estaurant/bar/lounge with amazing views of the city. Great midtown location!
Cons: Certain times of the year it can be very pricey. Big hotel with lots of hustle and bustle - but great location!
Insightful, funny, tearful at times, poignant and a great night of theatre that provides for great discussion after the play. If you have teenagers - this is a must see!
Pros: It is a touching , revealing and interesting way to explore pop culture, social media, and how the human struggle to rise above and beyond our human flaws. This is a fantastic play to take any teen who struggles with anxiety or very introverted. Conversely, it is a GREAT play to take anyone to show them the affect each of us has on another person.
Cons: If you expect or want a traditional Broadway style play, with bold scenery and activity this is not your play. Go see Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera, etc. This show is about the dialogue, topic, and more contemporary type of Broadway show.
