I don't like to American cookies. Because very oily. i must eat to Middle eastern cookies.
Favorite Dish My fafavorite cook is 'kuskus'. it's same to turkish foods. ingredients are broth, kuskus, pepper, margarine, chickpea and salt.
Carmine's is great!! Hardy appetites and good Italian food in the middle of NYC. Remember, don't fall for the temptation for the breadsticks. Since they're so good, you'll fill up on them, and you won't have enough room for the food. Try to get half-size when you can. Good for families and business groups.
Favorite Dish The Titanic is the best thing in there. It's just a big ice cream sundae, but uses more ice cream and toppings than you'll use in a month. Even a half-size was to big.(It might be the other great food, tough.)
Its about 100 metres from The Majestic Theatre. We were strolling the streets looking for a nice place to eat and came across it on the way.
Huge meals. Seriously. Biggest we have seen. The plates were oval, around 40cm by 30cm, and were filled to the edges. We could have eaten the left overs from the people next to us and not even finished that.
The price was standard. We couldnt believe it. On Broadway restaurant with the size and quality of the dishes, it was worth 3 times the price.
I main between 2 is plenty but desiding what to share was too difficult for us so we got 1 each. Ate about 1/3 of the meal each.
Great atmosphere too as its one half restuarant and one half a sports bar. Its a big place with classy wooden features.
If in NYC....GO THERE!!!
Favorite Dish Chicken Parmigiana - $20US. Enough for 3 and as good as any.
We liked Carmine's so much we went there twice! We went to both locations, in the Theater District and in the Upper West Side. The wait staff was friendly, but very busy, so don't plan to be checked up on much. But the food definately makes Carmines worth visiting. The Garlic Bread is a must! We had Chicken Parmesean with penne pasta the first time and Lasagna next. Both were very good. And if you like frozen drinks you must try the frozen Cosmopolitans! They were to die for, even at $10.75. The Theater District location also had frozen Appletinis!
The main courses are very large, so plan to share, it's expected.
We did have a wait the first time we went, I would recommend reservations. The second times we did call ahead and sat right down, no wait.
Favorite Dish Chicken Parmesean
The food was good, but the wait was absolutely horrible!!!! We had reservations for days in advance, and we still ended up waiting for about two hours. BUT we did have a very large party. The dishes are HUGE, you have to share with everyone!!!!!!! The atmosphere of this place was very bustling and alive.
