We are two young foodies from Belgium and we'll be in New York next month. We know the city quite well - it's our third visit - and have been lucky enough to visit fantastic places in NY, such as Eleven Madison Park, Jean Georges, Perry St., Gotham Bar & Grill, Momofuku Ssam Bar and - maybe a little disappointing - Daniel, which be found a little stiff and not extremely exciting.
This time we'll be staying at our family in Brooklyn, so this means we can stay a little longer and visit restaurants we really dream of.
We made plans to eat at very different restaurants, but we are still looking for one great spot. These are our plans so far:
Le Bernardin (lunch)
Mission Chinese Food
We can have a reservation at Atera, but it seems quite similar to Noma, which we've experienced, so we'd like something else. Something young, flavorful and very 'new york'. Just as we've loved EMP, but their menus became so expensive... Would Corton be a good choice?
Corton looks really exciting, but people seem to have very mixed feelings about Corton. So... what should we do? We've also been looking at Blue Hill, Gramercy Tavern, Minetta Tavern & Annisa,.
Thanks so much!
