Those looking for a great Italian meal I’d suggest Trattoria Malatesta in the West Village. All pastas are homemade. Handwritten menus. Cash only. No reservations.

For a great spot near the Garden try Turntable Chicken Jazz. Great chicken barbecue joint. Only about 3blocks away.

Also on an off night try and get into The Comedy Cellar on MacDougal. Tough to get a spot unless you reserve early (through their website).

Jay Bee,

You’ll need to fine tune the dates a bit.  We are staying the 8th-12th and it still shows available.  The full block (4th to 14th) shows No Availability.

Well folks, we are thinking of going to the BET this year....FINALLY ! ! !  Im asking for a little guidance for Tix and even Hotel stays.....  Would like to stay at the team hotel! ! !  Do I contact MU Athletic office??  Any help will be appreciated ! ! !  8-)

Best advice would be to get a hotel a few miles out of the city.

Or you could stay at the Holiday Inn a few blocks from MSG for a grand or more per night.

If you can arrive via Amtrak, I recommend it! You deboard in Penn Station, just below MSG. Easy, easy.

In addition to the games, be sure to make time for a trip to Central Park. The 911 memorial is a must. The victims and their loved ones deserve to have us pay our respects. My wife and I will try to visit the United Nations this time. Last year it was closed to the public. Something about a humongous annal opening invading a neighboring country. They were kinda busy.

Expect to pay some outrageous prices for a lot of things. Then you will not be surprised.

Consider the New Yorker Hotel, an Art Nouveau landmark that opened just about the same time the stock market crashed. Two floors above us, a guy named Nickolai Tesla lived in 2 rooms for years. Just below the lobby, they have an area dedicated to Tesla.

Agreed with Central Park and the 9/11 Memorial. 9/11 Memorial is heavy, obviously.

Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, from the Brooklyn side into Manhattan. Also, take the Staten Island Ferry (free) and then just get back on it to head back into Manhattan. Those are the two best views of the city, to me.

I don’t like breakfast food at all really, but I’d eat Bagel Pub bagel breakfast sandwiches for every meal if I could.

Good call on Comedy Cellar. I’m not much of a standup fan. Show was at like midnight and we were staying in Brooklyn, so it was going to be a late night. Wouldn’t have picked it as something to do myself, but it was awesome. Aziz Ansaria stopped in and did some standup. It was his first public appearance following the sexual abuse accusation. He was actually the worst performance, was clearly just testing material. But pretty cool to see him in front of about 250 people maybe? I don’t know the capacity, but it’s not big.

The IHG app shows several holiday inn and crown plazas 2-3 blocks from MSG for between $260-$300 a night during the BET.

Stop by Fraunces Tavern if you head down to the WTC.  George Washington had his farewell dinner to his officers there after the revolution.

Pretty relaxing vibe with a great liquor selection and live music.

Concur 100 percent.  I’ve done the Chicago-NYC run and from the Newark Airport on the Northeast Regional. Super easy.  The new Moynihan Train Hall is fantastic and lots of food options if you need a quick bite.

Beer Authority NYC at 300 W 40th St—makes a fantastic morning bloody mary.  It is one stop north of Penn Station on the A line.

Hmmm… stayed at Westin near Times Square last year. Liked the location bc not far from Broadway to the north & msg to south.

Team hotel is a bit south aina

We stayed there the only time we went to the tournament in 2009 and the team stayed there that year. It’s a simple 10 block walk to MSG and we went to a show at the New Amsterdam theater which is just across the street.

I used to stay at the Renaissance Midtown one - two times a month at my last job. I’ve been staying at the Westin for my recent trips, and even though it’s further from MSG, Westin > Renaissance.

Second for Los Tacos #1 and Joe’s. 2nd Avenue Deli is nearby.  If you want to walk, I like Tompkins Square Bagels and John’s of Bleecker St. Of course, if you really want to walk, the world is your oyster in the city.

We stayed at the Library Hotel last year (not for the tourney), took a train from Philly into Penn Station and walked oh about 20 minutes.

If you go, you know you are going to spend money.   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Since you're only an hour from MSG, put it in perspective. Marquette fans are spending huge amounts of money for travel, hotel and other expenses, so your outlay for pizza will be pocket change. Coffins don't have pockets. A day tripper like you should not give a rat's ass what the prices are.
