I know you must see hundreds of these types of requests, so I beg your patience.
My husband and I are coming to New York for a week (which is a big deal for us because we're coming without our 2 yrs. old twins). We have been to New York many times before, but really want to make the most of this week.
We are staying in midtown (50's btw lex. and park) and plan on going to the met. opera one night and the theater probably 2 nights. During the day we'll probably go to some art galleries in Chelsea, museums (probably MOMA, the Whitney, Guggenheim, Art/Design) and see friends.
So, that was a long-winded way of telling that we will be doing the same thing every other tourist does! The advice I'm seeking is for some fun, exciting places to eat for lunch and/or dinner. We will want to do one "fancy"/special night. Other than that, we are open to anything (except - no "family" places we have enough of that at home). We like trying new things and are adventurous eaters. I know I'm not narrowing it down well enough, but if anyone has fun doing vacation planning for others - I would much appreciate your assistance.
