    LOL, I used to work in Manhattan and know just what these kind of places are like. You better know what you want when you get to the counter or else the person taking orders will just move on to the next one in line. They don’t “wait” on you in a NYC deli!!

    As for the menu, I always used to get the chicken noodle soup and a bagel with cream cheese or some days a potato knish. OMG, I effing LOVE knishes, but you can’t find a good one outside of NYC. Delis in NYC make the BEST chicken noodle soup in the world. It will cure anything. Elise should have ordered that LOL. I could never get into chopped liver, sorry *ugh* But Eric’s a New Yorker, so chopped liver or pastrami on rye would’ve been a “typical” lunch for him. Oh, can I have an egg cream too?

    I’m missing NYC right about now. Send the limo for me. I don’t mind the cross-country drive from Seattle – I love road trips! I’ll bet I’d be REAL comfy in the back of that limo….with Eric of course!

      Hehe! I’m glad this looks Manhattan-ish!! I wanted to make sure it was authentic as possible. Your descriptions are wonderful. They’re making me hungry!

      Let’s go to lunch and have soup!

    • Kim

      @DebbieCDC, what is an egg cream?

      • Kim

        @DebbieCDC, one more thing, I don’t ka know what a knish is?
        Probably I should, maybe it is a polish dumpling!?

        • Loisada

          A knish is a Yiddish dumpling. Everybody needs to go to the Lower East Side (Loisada in Puerto Rican!), preferably to E. Houston St., and try one at least once in their lives!

        An egg cream is a New York drink born in Brooklyn. It’s seltzer water, milk and chocolate, served in a coke glass. It needs to be mixed right before it’s drunk, so it was usually made at lunch counters and was never widely bottled or popularized outside NYC.

    Marina, I love this. I wish I was in NYC having lunch with Eric right now. I’d eat the soup… I’d sniff him too.

    • Marina H.

      I’m sure he’d be open to other…erm…lunchtime activities. There’s a hotel right down the street. Actually there’s two. You can pick which one you want. :)

      And thanks :)

  • Kim

    Well ladies I’m in and I’m starvin! I’ve been to Manhattan twice by train, actually stayed at the Plaza.
    Howeva…..I missed out on a limo ride. So great to join you and Eric. Think I will have to try that liver sandwich on pumpernickel/my fave! What’s to drink, bottled water?? Ha Ha. I’ll have a sweet tea with lemon please. Do that have that in NYC?
    PS/there can’t be too much in the food choices, you know in depth stuff?! Is there?

    • Marina H.

      I like a good chopped liver sandwich….but dang that’s a lot of liver in that pic, lol. I dunno if i could do that much.

      Glad to have you in the limo, always :)

      • Loisada

        I like chopped liver too… but it has to be symbolic here. We say: “What am I, chopped liver?” to sarcastically express our anger when we’re being overlooked or devalued. Devaluation…. like the yen? And Eric’s eating it up.

        • Kim

          Oh my god! Of course, ya know everyone will have to see this movie more than once to get it all!!!!!!!
          Chopped liver…ha ha…actually my mind went to an organ meat. I know what was I thinking, oi oi.

    If they film this scene in NYC–and I hope they do–some lucky little luncheonette is going to be getting a whole lot of business as a result!

    • Marina H.

      It’ll be like the Sex and the City effect, except the Cosmopolis effect! Weeee!!

  • Viv

    love your game!
