After 5 years - I'm moving from NYC. While I'll be close enough for evening/weekend meals - I probably wont have a chance to eat many lunches in NY in the future. So what I'm looking for are those special to NYC places that are more accessible/cheaper during weekday lunches. For example - correct me if I'm wrong - Di Fara, Katz's, Jean Georges, Del Posto, Ippudo....etc.
I have five days next week to cover my bases. I'd like to do pizza one day, fine dining one day, chinatown one day, ramen or soba one day, and maybe a burger one day. Here is what I'm thinking.
Monday: Di Fara
Wednesday: 456, Legend, or Szechuan Gourmet
Thursday: Ippudo or Totto, maybe a Soba place?
Friday: Minetta Tavern
Where am I going wrong here? Suggestions?
So sad to be leaving but can't wait to go out on a high note!
