We'd like to try someplace we've never been to that is great for a late lunch. Here are places we've been to in the vicinity:
Marea, Bice, Bergdorf's, Aquavit, Rosa Mexicana, Momofuku Ma Peche, Fishtail, Fulton, Sarabeth, The Moderne, Le Bernardin, Jojo, Jean-Georges, Dawat, Darbur, Tao, Pampano, Le Bibliotecque, L 'Absinthe. I know a few of these are a little afield, but just in case you thought of suggesting, them, I mentioned them. Not a big fan of anything by David Burke or Daniel Boulud, having been to places of theirs and left wondering why they are so successful.
Thinking of maybe Park Avenue Winter, since we haven't been there since they changed their concept a zillion years ago.
We enjoy pretty much all cuisines. Since I have a day of heavy duty shopping planned, I don't want to schlep too far out of the way, but want something relaxing as a reward for my husband who is only going with me because he expects a good meal to come out of his selflessness.
