      You got a lot of great tips . Just wanted to add that DH & I stayed at The Crowne Plaza and loved it .
      Make sure to stop in at Hard Rock Cafe, Time Square, and have a drink at the bar during the evening , ask for the bartender, Aaron . It's my boss's son . He makes a wicked mixed drink or martini .
      We love Carmine's Italian restaurant . We always eat there .

      I'll stop because I'm out of control and I somehow think I'm planning my own trip there!
      I can vouch for Pastis. I loved the french feel and It wasn't cheap but I throughly enjoyed the experience, But I had no idea celeb's went there otherwise I'd of been well excited celebrity spotting.

      Lombardi's I stumbled upon and poped in to rest my feet and have a cool drink.The barman here was so friendly and helpful he told us to visit a place called dumbo which we did and was pleased to have gone.

      Thanks very much for all those suggestions little pickering, plenty more for me to read through there, as JoR suggested, I think some of them may be out of our budget though

      JoR - thanks for the confirmation about the train, good to hear it's fairly foolproof!

      Debi - glad to hear you liked the Crowne Plaza, we were considering the Hard Rock cafe while we were there, so thanks for that suggestion. We'll also have a look at Carmine's too.

      Jade - I'll have a look at those 2 places as well - thanks.

      Does anyone know what the situation is with bars, as I mentioned, I'm travelling with an 18 year old, I know he won't be able to drink, but can he go into any bars?

      Yes there were budget busters on my list and as others suggested, take a look at menu options, prices and required dress on the Internet before venturing out, it will be of great help. It's NY, even if you roam the streets eating a hotdog from a street vendor you will love it!!!!

      I think I've mentioned earlier that I'm going with my 18 year old nephew - do you think any of these more expensive restaurants would appeal to him? Don't want to splash out that sort of money if he won't appreciate it - he'd probably be happy with McDonalds each day!

      Its hard to say without really knowing him. But I wouldn't want you to waste your money so as a popular (but cheap) burger joint try five guys burger and fries http://www.fiveguys.com/ Its one of those if you like a burger its not to be missed type places (or so I read) don't get me wrong you'll walk in and wonder why it's so recommended but my guy was happy, Also if he really wants to there is a big mcdonalds in Times square Andrew .

      Also chris moyles off radio 1 was talking about a place called pop burger http://www.popburger.com/pop%20burger2/HTML/index.htm and after having a look it looks like somewhere I'd like to visit.

      And you can always grab a hotdog off one of the street carts, if its busy then I kinda take it as I'm not gonna die of food poisoning haha

      If your nephew is anything like my son he won't care about the restaurant just that they have food he likes. Five napkin burger is a popular place that has good burgers but a different twist for those that want something more.

      There are also more themed touristy restaurants like Mars 2112 and jeckyl and hyde which may keep him interested
      My son likes them just because they are fun. Dave and Busters is a popular place for a meal combined with video games if he is interested in that

      I think there's some places to eat there that might be more up his alley!

      Thanks for all the suggestions
