To Jan who was looking for a yummy, veg-friendly restaurant in the Times Square area of NYC.
There's a no-frills Mexican take-out place called I think Taco Fresco on 42nd Street between Broadway & 6th Avenue. It's next to a Duane Reade (big drug store). Cheap, filling, yummy burritos, rice & beans, etc.
Like I said, though, it's definitely no-frills. There's always a very long line at lunchtime.
Manhattan Chili Co. is on (I *think*) 41st Street between Broadway & 6th Avenue. It's a hip, sit-down type place. Not completely veg, but deelish. Check the Yellow Pages for complete address. Actually I haven't been there in a while. Hope it's still there.
Ninth Avenue in that area has lots of good Italian, Chinese & Thai restaurants. If the weather is nice, you could just walk around & check out the menus posted in the restaurant window. I promise, you won't have to look far!
