Make a reservation well in advance because this place gets booked up fast, and you will not want to wait up to two hours as a walk-in! The first stop is my favorite Italian restaurant right in the heart of Times Square; Carmine’s. The place is always busy but the service is fast. My favorite is the chicken parmesan. I also recommend the fried zucchini. These family-portion meals are huge and are meant to be shared. One meal is beyond plenty for two people, but for a family, picking two dishes should do. I shared a chicken parmesan with my wife, and the amount was enough for two dinners for the both of us. This will be - the best tasting, most filling experience, you ever encountered so be prepared for a level of euphoria following your meal.
