I always value my fellow chowhounds feedback and leave reports for futures after.
We are arriving in NY around 6 pm Thursday in mid-Oct. for a Thursday-Sunday visit. We are staying at the Carlton and while our usual plan would be for pizza Thursday I am worried about the "no reservation" policies with a 11, 9, and 4 yo and a husband on a cane with limited mobility after a catastrophic knee event.
Thus we thought it may be best to eat on site at Millesime and retire to hotel room for a movie.
Friday we plan to do a visit to the Metro Museum (we have been reading "Mixed up Files"), with late breakfast or early lunch (Shalazeh? Lukes Lobster?) in the area. A visit to the "Towers Memorial" is also important. We have early reservations for the family at Gramercy (we were going to do a intimate no kids dinner but EMP is closed for private event).
Saturday AM we were thinking of brunch at Lamb's Club before our 2 pm matinee of Wicked. Then we were thinking of grabbing a cab and hitting Keste for our NY pizza fix around 4 pm before returning to the Carlton and preparing for the early am trip back home.
Kids are very well traveled and well behaved at most venues (wouldn't do Le Louis, Per Se or French Laundry) but are great/comfortable elsewhere....
Any feedback would be, as always, appreciated! h
