okay, I read, sort of, that e mail about bringing other restaurants on board ships.  I am guessing someone thought of that while you went to lunch at the Shake Shack in Bryant Park.   I'm surprised someone didn't suggest the Heartland Brewery.  Isn't that the place across the street in the ESB ?    Or how about Peanut Butter & co down on Sullivan St ? What would be better on a cruise than a grilled peanut butter/banana/bacon sandwich ?  How about Reviving the Stage Deli on the Breakaway ?     I would rather see Juniors Cheesecake than that Cake Guy stuff they have on board now.    

How about a new gift shop ?  I vote for a version of Pasteurs Apothecary over on 34th.(?) While the women buy jewelry in the boutiques, men can shop for shaving supplies. Just a thought.


for those that don't understand this post, you have to realize, it's a NYC thing.

Yea, I get the NYC thing... But you are not to far off the mark in the thought process.

I can see things like that on the Mega ships, as far as I am concerned they are the destination.

Grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich, ok now I'm hungry.

Don't forget the bacon

I still say they need a serious poutine bar on one of the ships

Is that one of those bars ballet dancers use to stretch out on.

There is a restaurant in NY at Park & 32nd ( 2 Park ) called Artisanal. They have amazing food, including the BEST burger. This thing was $30 + and worth every dime. Anyway, they are a fromaggerie and of course serve fondue. They also do a chocolate version for dessert. I had suggested this concept to one of the cruiselines a couple of years ago. My version utilized induction stoves so, no open flame. I still think it can be done and would love to see it. So, if anyone in the wants to head over to Park & 32nd for a great lunch or dinner, all I can say is, you're welcome.

Oh, if you order the grilled cheese, make sure they put the fig paste on it. That's the key ingredient.
