The Daily Shortlist August 18
Prog-rock keyboard and electric violin legend Eddie Jobson is a prodigy who has played with the likes of Roxy Music, U.K., Jethro Tull, YES, and Frank Zappa and now he embarks on his first ever solo tour after coming out of a 27 year retirement just as brilliant as ever. While the original Junior’s Restaurant in Brooklyn is best, this midtown location offers a nearly identical menu of deli sandwiches, diner entrees, and of course soul food fixin’s, on top of some of the best cheesecake in NYC, which is saying a lot! For drinks check out The View . Not the TV show, but the bar high atop the Marriot Marquis. Plus it revolves. If you’re looking for something to do, go to Madame Tussaud’s wax museum. Yes, it’s a cheesy tourist attraction, but where else are you going to get a picture with Nicholas Cage or Samuel L. Jackson?
