Will be in the city next week for a meeting then heading back to Saratoga with a friend. Want to get my NYC food fix while I'm in town. My favorite restaurant is Falai. Some recent dining experiences I have really enjoyed:
*Graffiti (except for the space)
Been to Corton, Degustation, Locanda Verde (lunch), EMP (lunch), Robuchon, etc.
I am looking for really good food. Food that surprises. Counter/bar seating would be great. Not interested in Greek this time. Not into Blue Hill, etc. Prefer midtown, downtown. Not into a scene or a challenging reservation process. Only caveat is I don't eat red meat (the Hearth pig roast on Tuesday won't work for me :)
Thanks in advance for your help. I will report back.
