Late-ish Sunday Dinner w/kids near The Benjamin & other input on my list

melee | Mar 18, 2014 05:16 PM

Hello! I’ve been monitoring this board for months to help plan our 1st first trip to New York with our girls (ages 10 & 8). Thanks to all who post regularly and a special mahalo to Kathryn for sharing all those incredibly helpful links!

We’re coming from San Diego and staying at The Benjamin (50th & Lex). We’re getting in late-ish on a Sunday night – landing at JFK at 8:30. I’m thinking we might find a Shake Shack that’s open or – since we’ll be on CA time - take the girls to Times Square to check out the lights and maybe hit up the Halal Guys cart. Any other thoughts or suggestions?

We’re pretty adventurous, don’t have a tight budget, and want to experience classic NY foods like bagels, pizza, deli, hot dogs, as well as great Ramen, Chinese, French Bistro and Italian. We have reservations at Marseille before The Lion King one night and another reservation at Osteria Morini. We’ll have six nights and five days to eat our way through Manhattan. Seems like lots of places on our radar don’t take reservations. Here’s what we’re targeting so far:

Russ & Daughters
Katz’s
Papaya King
Luke’s Lobster
William Greenberg
Don Antonio
Joe’s
Motorino
Ippudo
Momofuku Ssam
Xian Famous Foods

Am I missing anything?
