In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher takes the stage to tell her truly fascinating Hollywood life story which includes battling depression, addiction, mental illness, breakdowns, and affairs. While the original Juniorâ€™s Restaurant in Brooklyn is best, this midtown location offers a nearly identical menu of deli sandwiches, diner entrees, and of course soul food fixinâ€™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 youâ€™re looking for something to do, go to Madame Tussaudâ€™s wax museum. Yes, itâ€™s a cheesy tourist attraction, but where else are you going to get a picture with Nicholas Cage or Samuel L. Jackson?
