Hey everyone, Looking for some help in choosing a few dining spots for an upcoming long weekend my mom and I will be spending together in NYC. We'll be in Manhattan, but would like to spend at least one evening in Brooklyn/Williamsburg.
First off, we're pretty darn adventurous eaters - and expect a short-lived NY weekend to match our sense for adventure. Mom lives in Hong Kong and dines out frequently, so Asian is loved but it needs to break some "rules" to be worthy of a night out in a US metro.
First great find would be:An authentic Moroccan/French Provencial hyrbid - think great tagines, lamb, wine, couscous.
Second great find: gastro wine bar with creative pairings. French, Asian, Asian hybrid... we're open to fun ideas
Third great find: Brunch that's fresh, local, fun and beyond the egg white omelete and memosa sort. I've been to a great place in Williamsburg that I'm blanking on the name of
Looking forward to what people suggest. I always find such great restaurants via chowhound... but the Manhattan posts are def. overwhelming!
