Marea and Babbo and Le Bernardin and Jungsik?

jilkat25 | Oct 16, 2013 10:36 AM

Would it be crazy to try to do all of these in 5 days? I have reservations at all four at the moment, but it wouldn't be right to sit on a reservation we know we can't use.

I wasn't expecting to find an opening at Marea. Could we reasonably plan to eat appetizers and share an entree or two at Marea? In other words, could we get out of there for under $150 for 2 with tip?.I had been searching for a less expensive destination for this night.

Is it rude to skip wine or cocktails (and just drink water) in order to afford to dine in these restaurants?

Between Marea and Le Bernardin, which one would we be most sorry to miss? What about Jean-Georges instead of either of these (openings still available with $50 on a credit card to hold)?
