Also bag wise: I'm carrying a trader joes or similar with my laptop IN its $10 sleeve case and leaving it in the storage room- just my idea for people wondering how to carry everything- it seems sensible and if it gets lost in the room/taken (not that anyone would), nbd.
Seems like pre-ordering is the move. Heard mixed things about what is available nearby.
And for Javits... I asked someone who took it there last year and she said the bathroom situation was totally fine.
If you're referring to the Albany Convention Center there's an au bon pain right inside the convention center literally next door to where you will take the exam, along with some other food options- I remember seeing a McDonalds but ABP would deff. be safer. They have coffee, sandwiches, and soup, do that and you'll be fine

Also the link to this map might be helpful- it shows you the restaurants there. the convention center at the plaza is huge (or maybe I just felt small and overwhelmed during exam time lol), "the convention hall/the egg" is where you will take the exam- as you can see on the map, the food court is literally right next door- 15/16 on the map. Hope that helps.
