As a NYC first timer, I will resist the temptation to throw out the plea for recommendations for "somewhere nice to eat" in the city in late August.
So I will narrow down the request for info.
While I am under no illusions about the flexibility offered by the public transport system and the cab service, I would like to research the dining options within walking distance (let's say a mile.....) of our hotel, the High Line on 10th Avenue.
I will also refine the search to 1.seafood, 2.Japanese Izakawa 3. wings, 4.burgers 5.pizza.
A few iconic places on my list that I would appreciate opinion on, as to whether they would be worth the trip : Katz's deli, the Oyster Bar at Grand Central, the Burger Joint at le Parker Meridien.
Open to any inspired suggestions as well of course!
