Personally I'd skip breakfast. That why I'd enjoy lunch more :)

A steak to go doesn't sound ideal to me.
Just doing pastries and coffee- something to hold us over till lunch.
Agreed about the steak, not necessarily planning on getting a steak. I know its criminal but I usually end up disappointed with steaks in restaurants- with the exception of Tierra Sur and Reserve cut, and even then not always.
We did actually think about picking up dessert from Shallot's to eat on the plane.

I think the new plan may be to do Milt's twice. Or maybe Evita Sunday night, Shallot's to go on Monday night.

Haven't been there yet but I'm told it's really great... They redid the deli section and have great food.
Now they repoened the former DaNali's and made a new kosher pizza shop

I was referring to the pizza shop. AFAIK the store is still called Hungarian.

I guess it depends on what you're comparing it to. It's a lot better than it used to be

I believe the only restaurant on Uber eats is EJs. Not sure if they'll go that far.
