If you are staying in the Courtyard in Lyndhurst (currently our preferred hotel-of-the-week) and want to avoid eating at that really expensive deli across the road, there is a little place called the Whiskey Diner about 5 mins. walk that's cheaper and more laid-back atmosphere. It calls itself a diner but it's really more of a bar-and grill, clean chrome and neon look. good food, burger platters for 7 bucks, chix fingers about 6. Still pricey by midwestern standards, but better than most places in the NYC area and they play rock & roll over the speakers. Nice bar, live music Saturday night, DJ Wed.-Fri. nights. Right turn out of the hotel, left at the first light, and it's about a quarter mile up on the right in the ground floor of a big square office building.

May the 501 be with you............always

Yea might be OK ... still does not come close to Harrod's (Harrold's?).

Just split the Harold's dinner's and the price becomes reasonable. And food is real ...

You guys don't stay at the Hilton any more? What happened? I remember when the Hilton became the new preferred place Times have sure changed there for the worse

Some employee of harolds stole the CC# of one of the flight options pilots and he had all kind of erroneous charges on it.

Speaking of steal, how'd you like if I steal that Giants helmet from your avatar and replace with a nice Jets helmut... J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS

Probably either the company negotiated a rate of $1 a night cheaper at the Marriott, and/or the Hilton pissed Joe Salata off somehow.

CK's Steakhouse in the Renassance across the street is real pricey, but on par with Ruth's Chris for an excellent steak!

On the way to the hotel you'll go by a little joint called Steve's Sizzlin' Steaks. Real cheap and real good. It's a small bar that you might have to wait to get into. Dark inside, no frills but beats the Chinese Poo Poo Platter and a third cheaper than CK's. Have the hotel run you over there. While you're waiting for the driver, have some of the soggy chips at the hotel bar. Now you're livin'!
