Hello, I just received great feedback from my first post on Chow Hound regarding Italian restaurants and would love help reviewing our entire plan for the week!
Background: Annual Mother/Daughter trip to NYC, we're from Miami area, both foodies, looking for excellent food with beautiful atmosphere. We will be in the city for 4 nights (mon - fri) and are centering our trip around dining! (Any $ amount is acceptable)
We are staying at The Peninsula and will be visiting the museums in that area on most days. But we would also like to see the other areas of the city.
Our current schedule:
Mon: Dinner - EMP
Tue: Lunch - ?
Dinner - ?
Wed: Lunch - ?
Dinner - Marea
Thu: Lunch - ?
Dinner - WD-50
Fri: Lunch - ? (Preferably near the Peninsula Hotel as we have a flight to catch)
*I definitely want to keep my reservation at EMP, but I'm flexible on all others. Wednesday night has to be a late dinner (11 pm or later) because of the theater. And I would like to have one of the dinners be at a "trendy/hip" place. There are so many wonderful restaurants in New York to choose from!
Here are some of the restaurants I'm interested in. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! :)
Dinner: Hearth, Aldea, Public, Stanton Social, Grammercy Tavern, SHO, Corton. (Megu, Macao Trading Co. & Kittichai - they look so beautiful! How is the food?)
Lunch: Locanda Verde, Fig & Olive, Convivio, ABC Kitchen, Momofuku (not sure which one?), Dovetail, Blue Hill, Union Square Cafe, The Standard Grill, Prune, Blue Hill, Amazing 66)
Lastly, if anyone has a recommendation for a nice place to have an artisanal cocktail (like Death & Co) before EMP as it is a late reservation, that would be great!
I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts! Thank you in advance. :)
