I know that sounds strange! I have one night in NYC and have been reading your board. It would be difficult for me to pass up an outstanding Thai restaurant for my one and only dinner in NYC, especially given the rave reviews Lotus of Siam gets for their Las Vegas restaurant. But, I don't have enough to go on other than a couple of reviews of their soft opening. If this is a no go, then my next preference would be to try farm to table dining in Manhattan. I googled this and found Blue Hill Farm, but don't know if A) this is the real thing, and B) it's delicious and worth it.
What do you all think. Should I stick with Lotus of Siam or should I go to Blue Hill Farm. If I don't go to Lotus of Siam, is there another farm to table restaurant I should consider. I will likely be staying in the theater district or if I can get a boutique hotel somewhere in Soho or surrounding areas. I am familiar with the subway so don't mind travelling to worthwhile dining establishments and money is no object.
Thanks for your ideas.
