Any ideas?  I'll be there Sat thru Mon.

Sorry I don't have enough time to say more, but I'll take any brainstorming.

I'll be in Time Square, so within walking/cabbing distance from that is all I need.

Please let me know if you think I can spend any of my bitcoin while I'm there.  I'm eager to spend as long as it's not for any overpriced industry (I'm cheap).

Where are you staying in Times Square?

If you walk west to 9th avenue there are TONS of local bars and  really good restaurants that the local go to that are away from the overpriced bad food in Times Square.  You could walk from on 9th Avenue from 42nd Street to about 59th Street and fine just about every type of food you could imagine all pretty reasonably priced.

5 napkin Berger on 43 and 9th is a popular burger place.

Marseille on 9th and 44th is a nice French Place.

You can't go wrong in any of the Italian places.

And there are Tai, Sushi and Chinese placed all up and down the avenue.

And you if are looking to sell BTC why you are in town PM me!

Thanks so much.  I'll be with my wife, so likely won't be able to trade bitcoins.  (Are you just looking to save transaction fees?  or do you not use Mtgox? or other exchanges)

My apologies though.  I meant to ask which restaurants accept bitcoin in NYC.

I called Meze Grill and they confirmed they no longer accept bitcoin.

And I see some o-crepes place, but it's far from Time Square.

I'll be at the Crown Plaza.

You could PM Yankee (Bit Instant) or Erik (evoorhees) of Bitinstant.  If there are businesses accepting BTC in NYC they should know.  I've not heard of any others.

I would like to go to Brunch this Sunday.

1) Should I make a reservation?

2) Do you accept bitcoin as a payment option.

Thanks!

Just sent this e-mail to info@hudsoneatery.com

I called them and the lady had no idea what I was talking about, but was going to ask her boss.  I told her I'd just e-mail instead.

Anyone know if I should make a reservation if I want to go for Sunday brunch?

Thanks for the offer Charlie!  I will be traveling with my wife (not into poker) for her birthday.  She's not too keen on bitcoin (I've said the word a few more times than her liking), so I doubt she'll be up for too much bitcoin related activities.

However, she will support one meal that is paid for in bitcoins, hence my search for a restaurant to make that happen.

She's Lebanese, so she was very upset that Meze Grill stopped accepting, and now she still wants a falafel pita, haha.

I've reached out to A class limo to see if they are as cheap as any other cab from La Guardia to Time Square (but I'm not holding my breath).  They look like higher end town car company.

And I've already e-mailed Hudson Eatery, so we'll see what those two companies do to earn my bitcoin.

Thanks for all the feedback so far!

We'd be glad to accept the BTC from you and pay for the meal in USD. Some great middle eastern food around us, I know, Im from the region myself  Grin

I appreciate the offer.  I've got plenty of fiat, but was hoping to have a bit-pay experience or other payment processing transaction, heh.

Has anyone tried to reach out to Meze Grill to get them back? I understand they lost their coins in one of the hacks in 2011, I believe, but obviously there are now far more professional and secure solutions. Sounds like they get inquiries from potential bitcoin customers with some frequency... Maybe someone from bitpay could contact them? 1000+ merchants already signed up should generate some confidence.

Well neither hudson eatery nor a class limo responded to my e-mails...

Guess I'll save my bitcoin for the next city I visit.  Or perhaps keep them to the internet economy where they "belong?"

Either way, excited for New york.  Sitting @ the airport terminal right now.

Charlie, thanks for your hospitality!  Perhaps I'll make it back someday for that poker nite.

What's the good news?  Most of the places I visited over a year ago no longer accept bitcoins.

And Charlie may be in jail... not sure if his bar Evo? is still up & running.

And I'm not sure if any dogecoin payment processors have had success in the New York marketplace yet.

Any ideas?

Please check out the app "AirBitz" ... its available for iPhone.  I assume android, etc.

It will tell you every business within your radius that accepts bitcoins, including restaurants.  Love it.

Be sure to contact them before showing up... I never heard back and thus we did not make it there during our trip.
