Here’s my quick midtown NYC trip this week, Thursday to Sunday. Wife and I staying at Milford Plaza (Eighth and 45 St).
Obviously VERY touristy, and nothing too wild, but any comments welcome.
Thursday – Arrive late morning, Lunch at Esca. See nativity lighting at The Met around 5pm. Maybe a drink at Bemelmans. Then back to midtown for super casual meal. A few years ago we ate at a Chinese place, somewhere across from NBC, perhaps 47 or 48 btw 5 and 6? (It was downtown side of street). Walk up a few stairs, then it is long and narrow and filled with Asians. Loved it. Name?
Friday – Lunch at Gramercy Tavern front room. Late afternoon, Rockettes, then world-class Neapolitan pizza at Don Antonio’s before jazz at Lincoln Center. Late night maybe a drink back down at at Algonquin or Jimmy’s Corner. Or snack at Bonchon Chicken (38&7).
Saturday – Bagels at Murray's downtown, wander around Union Sq Market. Lunch at madhouse Eately or maybe ABC Kitchen. Early dinner at The Modern front room before Nutcracker at Lincoln Center. Maybe Momofuku dessert during walk from Modern to Lincoln. Maybe final nightcap at top of Marriot Marquis. Or just a beer and some bluegrass at Delta Grill.
Sunday – Do have time for a nice breakfast somewhere before leaving city at noon – ideas?
