My wife and I will be heading to NYC in October for 4 nights (Wed - Sun), staying at the Refinery Hotel on 38th. I'm trying to get a mix of iconic New York eateries while peppering in some casual places as well.
Itinerary is as follows:
Ushiwaka Maru, Sushi Yasuda, or Tanoshi
Luke's Lobster or Joe's for a slice
Gramercy or Minetta
Del Posto prix fixe
Szechuan Gourmet, Xi'an Famous Food or Spicy Village
Momofuku Noodle or Ssam
Russ & Daughters
Other suggestions welcome. Thanks!
