1st Time back in NY since 1998 , need restaurant help!

melsy | Apr 19, 2007 02:50 PM

New to this forum and hope I can get some help, Im a London foody coming with my sisters and mom. We will be arriving next week and have a 5 day itinerary.

Havent been to NY for like 9 yrs (my hubby proposed there). I cant even remember were we ate except for Arthurs Landing in NJ and City Crab on Park Avenue. ( are they any good still ?)

For the 1st night we get there we'd like to have something booked that's quite relaxed after the flight in from London. Somewhere with a varied menu, and good American style (seafood steak etc), casual, middle price range , NOT a typical tourist place, so need help on that !. We'd like somewhere not to far to walk like 5mins or 10 mins cab ride. Were staying at the Gershwin which I believe is round the corner from Macy's ?

We may also be going to an Off Broadway show at the theatre below and dont know were to eat before .

Westside Theatre Downstairs
407 West 43rd Street (Between 9th and 10th Avenues)
New York NY 10036

Fpr another evening my mum wants to go to Tavern on The Green , I dont really know if I fancy it , it looks sorta pretty , but inside seems very old fashioned , any thoughts ?

Need a great , good quality sushi/sashimi place thats medium price point for lunch treat or one in each area , as I have no idea were we will be some days!

Love a good ceviche & ribeye steak, like an amazing Argentinian group we have here in UK. http://www.gaucho-grill.com/

Price banding I would say no more than $70 a head (+ may be one cocktail !)

1st night casual relaxed informal American fayre
2nd night Seafood
3rd night pre theatre meal
4th night Somewhere modern / stylish and a little buzzy.

Ive got a list below of places we fancy (very eclectic list mind) , but wanted any thoughts on these :

Del Frisco (might be a contender for the 1st night , have no idea were this is situated in the quality , style ratings?)
China Grill
Metrazur etc - any of Charlie Palmer places ??
Oyster Bar - really really want to go , we forgot about it last time
Pastis
Fedoras
Stanton social
Landmarc in Tribeca
SAPA
Carmines (upper West side)

look forward to others experiences and ideas
