"Well, I'm from Brooklyn and real Brooklyn diners aren't trying to be this 'upscale.' Food is just ok, but portions are large. If a family or tourists are looking for someplace to grab a meal, this is a good choice. For someone wanting 'real' comfort food, it's kind of like Times Square itself, overdone and artificial, but still fun to visit once in a while."

Established in 2010.<br /><br />You could be sure to expect the best when you come to AnTalia, As the owners are a part of the daily operations. Service is being taken care of a manager who owns the restaurant, food is being deliciously prepared by a cook who also owns the restaurant. How can you go wrong?<br /><br /><br />AnTalia Restaurant serves authentic Turkish dishes in the midtown area. The pre-theater crowd loves there Prix-Fixe menu that serves 3 course meals for only 24.95. This lovely restaurant serves its guests in two floors. Second floor is a great way to have a private party or dine quietly.

"A couple of blocks off the beaten path, but worth seeking out. Food was fresh and tasty, service was attentive. The prix fixe is worth the price."

The latest member of the Heartland Brewery family of restaurants, HB Burger is the only full-service burger-oriented restaurant in the Times Square area. It features comfortable and spacious seating, wrought-iron chandeliers, two bars and a compelling menu. Expect to find prime Angus beef burgers, a sashimi-grade tuna burger, specialty salads, “Must Fry’s” like tatter tots stuffed with bacon and Jack cheese, and homemade sodas on tap.

"Not well advertised compared to it's Heartland siblings, but the burger selection here is first rate. Wonderful juicy burgers, with a choice of meat types (including a very good veggie offering). Personally I think there's no need to splurge for a Kobe burger, but if you want to say you tried one (for a not-ridiculous price), this is the right place."

"The food is not the same as it was at the old McHale's (I miss those burgers)--but the atmosphere is definitely better. The service is friendly, the crowd upbeat, a good place to 'hang' either pre- or post-theater."

"Lazzara's is a hidden gem. The pizza is incredibly good. Note, this is not a slice shop. Sit, order a half pie for yourself (whole pie for 2 people), and enjoy. Crowded at lunch, fairly empty at dinner. GO!"

"The Penn Station area is a bit of a culinary waste zone, but this is an exception. Good food, not horribly priced. I really like the pretzel covered chicken, but there are lots of tasty choices."

Love, Peace and Rice 'n Beans. It's true that rice-and-beans are the staple at this Brazilian hole-in-the-wall, but to say they're the chef's specialty would be an understatement. Traditional Brazilian cuisine is infused with Portuguese and African influences, represented in dishes by the intense flavors of garlic, onion, tomato, palm oil, and coconut. The delicious picadinho carioca, or beef stew, has tender sirloin cooked with onions, garlic, tomatoes, peppers, and red wine. Don't skip the feijoada, Brazil's national dish. It's a casserole of black beans with pork loin, sausage, bacon, spare ribs, and beef, with a scorching homemade hot sauce. Except for the uninspired appetizers, portions are big enough to share. The place itself is cozy.

"Highly recommended. Everything was delicious. The place is small, but that's what is said about 'good things.' Definitely order the cheese puffs as an appetizer (they're addictive). Flan was also a great basic dessert."

"I really enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. Had trouble deciding what to eat, lots of things looked good. May not be true of everything, but portions of what I ordered were not large, but sharing several of the smaller dishes should be encouraged."
