I am a junior foodie... by that I mean that I have an intense love of cuisine (and I think a pretty refined palate from years of fine dining with my parents), but now that I am on my own (especially financially) I have to experience my passion modestly. I am trying to plan my first trip to NYC sans parents and want to experience great food, but on a early 20 year old's budget. If anyone has suggestions on amazing moderately priced restaurants, or can offer some critique to my very tentative schedule, I would be so grateful!
1st night: Rachel's American Bistro (I have heard such mixed reviews on this place... help!)
2nd day: lunch- katz's deli
dinner- Nobu (my parents are treating for one dinner so I can go all out)
3rd day: lunch- patsy's pizza
dinner- Sette (once again, very mixed reviews)
4th day: lunch- I am not sure, possibly 'wichcraft since I love Tom but can't afford Craft (and have heard not so good things about craftbar).
dinner- Roth's Westside Steakhouse
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
