Manhattan godzilla list (coming to manhattan tomorrow!)

CaptCrunch | Aug 15, 2013 08:48 PM

Hello everybody!

I am a fellow chowhounder from Montreal coming to visit your wonderful city tomorrow. I will be staying a full week with a group of friends in a condo near madison square park.

My goal was to make a list large enough to be able to improvise while filtering out places that would not be interesting to me. I deliberately left out supper high end/highbrow restaurants (Jean Georges et al) and I want to try a bit of everything: lowbrow/trashy/delicious to artisanal, kitch to hipster It wasn't a scientific approach and I'll be honest in saying that getting this together was 50% instinct and 50% analysis. I also kinda broke down in the end and had to force myself to stop and bring the list together (so you will all probably have one place you love that won't be there) All in all I will probably try 4-5 bars out of the bar list and 10 to 12 places from the restaurant list.

I won't ask you to filter down the list further but I would be curious to know if any places stand out to you!
