New York - another post, bits and bobs especially the food

Needed to post specifically about the food and recommendations, here goes.

Cafe Nero (Gatwick) - Lunch: Skipped because didn't want anything.

BA Flight Meal - Dinner: Sausage and Mash with the usual sides. The best thing about it was the Twix! Surroundings were abviously average. 1.5 out of 5.

BA Flight Meal - Breakfast: Skipped because didn't want anything.

Tad's Broiled Steaks - Dinner: Some steak with jacket potato, gravy, coleslaw and garlic bread with a tropical twister or something. Huge meal but tasted Ok. Surroundings were a bit dated and slightly dirty. 3.5 out of 5.

Starbucks - Snack: Tall Vanilla Latte. Tasted alright, surroundings were quite nice. 3.5 out of 5.

Masa's - Lunch: Unagi Bento with Apple Tea. I liked it, except for some large bones it was a nice meal. Surrounding were quite good for a train station. 4 out of 5.

Hard Rock Cafe - Dinner: Pulled Pork Sandwich, fries, coleslaw and Mountain Dew. As I said it was the nicest dinner. The surroundings were OK but as I was sitting next to schoolmates rather than friends the atmosphere was somewhat awkward. 4 out of 5 anyway (just to say the scores are comparative).

Some random cafe - Brunch: Pineapple Juice, tasted Ok but the surroundings were nice. 3.5 out of 5.

Cosi's - Lunch: Chicken TBM with Raspberry Iced Tea, Water and a Cookie. They also gave me a packet of crisps which I didn't order, don't know whether I paid for them though - they did taste nice though. The experience of running around with it was a bit hectic but the food was nice. 4 out of 5.

Bubba Gumps Shrimp Co - Dinner: Chicken Strips with Fries and Sierra Mist. Food was average, not enough leg room but it was the most similar to what I'd expected of an American Restaurant. 2.5 out of 5.

United Nations Cafe - Brunch: Raspberry Iced Tea, Apple Muffin, Aquafina water and Fruit Salad! The fruit Salad was amazing, the muffin was Ok. Surroundings were a bit bland. 3.5 out of 5.

Planet Hollywood - Dinner: Chicken Sandwich with Chips and Pepsi Diet. Way too dry, the chips were nice though. I liked the HD screens but the surroundings were average. 3 out of 5.

Starbucks - Breakfast: Croissant and Iced Coffee no sugar. The Iced Coffee went down easier than I thought. It was an Ok experience, loved the croissant though. 3.5 out of 5.

Newsagents and Duane Reade! - Brunch: Kettle Crisps, Snapple drink and Herschey's. Totally unhealthy but it was Ok, sat on a pedestrian Island so kinda weird. 3 out of 5.

Baducci's (I think) - Lunch: Club Sandwich, fruit salad, Snapple Kiwi and Pear. The Sandwich was quite large, I liked it though. Surroundings were average. 3 out of 5.

BA Flight Meal - Dinner: Pasta with the usual sides. It was actually one of my best flight meals, still average though! 3 out of 5.

BA Flight Meal - Breakfast: Danish Pastry and Orange Juice. My hands got all sticky because jelly was covered all over it. 2 out of 5.

Hope it helps any weary souls! I did however realize that one of my friends had chicken for all 4 dinners! He had a Chicken meal at Tad's. Chicken Sandwich at both Hard Rock and Planet Hollywood and then the fried chicken strips at Bubba Gumps!
