Delicious & Fun!

A couple of friends & I took a Mother-Daughter trip with our daughters to NYC & we ate at Bubba Gumps. Everyone enjoyed their food but our real enjoyment came from 2 hosts/waiters that serenaded us! I believe they were students trying to make it on Broadway. They made our dinner so much fun!

Had the most amazing lunch here. Our waitress Monique was totally awesome!!! She was friendly and super helpful; attentive but not pushy. We loved our food, friend had Southern Fried chicken, her son had mac/cheese and chicken - which wasn't on the menu with chicken but Monique arranged it as he doesn't like shrimp, I had Jenny's catch which was...

Have visited NY many times before but never made it here for one reason or another, so this time it was a must. As soon as we walked through the door we all loved it. The film memorabilia is great - especially the bench with the box of chocolates! We waited around 15 mins for a table and the food... More

Food was good and the service was great, the little Forrest Gump quiz was a nice twist. All in all a top night out especially if you're a Forrest Gump fan!

Been here while a short visit to NYC by myself. Went twice by myself because I am a huge fan of the movie and Bubba, of course. How could you stop going to the place where you can try: "boiled schrimp, fried schrimp, saltee schrimp, schrimp with pasta..." YES, you should be ready to spend some money... Ive only had... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
