Advice for April visit

nextguy | Feb 15, 2012 07:37 AM

My plan is to be in Manhattan for three days starting on Saturday March 31, leaving on April 2. In previous visits I have eaten at:

Per Se
Le Bernardin
Momofuku Ko
Lincoln
Bouley

As well as a few other places.

This will probably be my last trip for a while as we hope that my wife will be pregnant soon, with any luck by the time we take this trip. This of course brings complications as some of the places we wanted to visit will be off the list. In particular we were hoping to visit either Yasuda, Kyo Ya, or Brushstroke. Maybe those three could accommodate the dietary restrictions of a woman in her first trimester, but I wonder how good the experience would be when seafood is the primary ingredient. So our list now looks like this:

Saturday
Lunch: Jean Georges
Dinner: Corton or SHO (I am leaning towards Corton but still unsure)

Sunday:
Breakfast: DB Bistro Moderne (dying for the croque a trois)
Lunch: Maybe The Modern Bar room as we will be at Moma but the menu does not inspire me
Dinner: Not sure. Maybe Acme. Was hoping to fit Yasuda or one of the Kaiseiki places here.

Monday:
Lunch: EMP. Trying to decide between the four course with the duck or the tasting menu.

So I am on the bubble for three of these meals. I have seen threads about Corton vs. Sho but found them inconclusive. The Modern looks ok but I have read some recent reviews that were quite negative. And as for Acme, assuming I can even get in, I do not tend to enjoy trendy/popular places but the owner has an interesting pedigree. Does anyone have any thoughts on this intinerary?
