i am coming to new york thrusday, march 13th (5.30 pm est) and leaving sunday, march 16th (11.00 am).
for dinner i have thought: thursday night- sushi yasuda (do they take reservations??), friday nite- prune, saturday night- momofuku (should i do ssam bar or noodle bar?!)
lunch- friday should i do katz's or 2nd ave deli? im going for pastrami, but i dont need some sandwich longer than my arm, saturday- shopsin's
what should i do/ see, foodwise (not eating, obviously) on friday (ill be in manhattan) and saturday (ill be around brooklyn, mainly) should i go see chelsea market, the green market (does that go on in winter?)? tell me! i really like to bring home ingredients from the places i visit to cook with at home, i cook by trade. unique things to use in my kitchen at home, that will last the train ride are helpful.
i am from rural virginia, on the chesapeake bay, if that tells you anything.
then, i was thinking friday i would get some takeout from daisy may's bbq usa for the train on sunday. and that i would swing by balthazar for breakfast sunday before i left.
i also was thinking about getting some gelato in brooklyn over at oro verde gelati espresso bar.
any help/thoughts would be greatly appreciated. what should i not miss?
