Read mixed reviews but decided to try it. I've given a two rating as I didn't enjoy the experience at all. Food was generally overpriced for very greasy diner food. The service felt rushed, the atmosphere seemed a bit tacky! I wouldn't recommend it.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
