I think I could use a little help with my plans.
We are arriving on Wednesday and staying in the city for three nights. Daughter, SIL and grandson will join us one of those, and we will have a celebratory birthday meal, just husband and myself, for our final meal.
We are doing some eating to please our daughter who lives in the boondocks and has cravings.
We arrive on Wednesday, and may try to visit an exhibit late in the day. I want to see the Renoirs at The Frick. A late snack will be in order, but I don't know where to go in that part of town.
For dinner, just the two of us, and fairly casual, I was thinking Via Emilia.
The next day, before the family comes into the city, I would like to get to Russ and Daughters. I'm wanting a lox on poppy with a bit of cream cheese, capers and onions. And maybe a whitefish salad if I can talk my husband into splitting the sandwiches.
That night, the family wants to eat at Spice (haven't picked a location yet; this is all for daughter who had a branch of Spice near her FIT dorm back in the day, and is seriously craving it. If anyone can suggest a branch where 5 or 6 can be comfortably seated, that would be good. Grandson is young, but a seasoned restaurant diner. We will have dinner at 6.
After dinner, the only dessert place we could find is something called ChocoBolo that my daughter saw on television. It is in Soho. She is desperately craving a rich chocolate dessert.
The next day we are on our own. I am at a loss here. We may go to the Brooklyn Museum, but we would want to be back in Manhattan for dinner. I am thinking Craft, Maiolino, Locanda Verde. I just dont know....Looking for really good food, but I don't want to dress up. We loved Hearth last time in the city.... any similar suggestions?
I also want to visit the High Line if there are any food suggestions that could tie in with that.
Thanks for any and all help.
