We'll be in Manhattan for 3.5 days over the July 4 holiday. It's been hard to come up with a list of places to eat but the boards have had great suggestions. Since we live in SF and have some great restaurants here, we wanted to hit some special NY places.
How does this sound?
Ivo and Lulu (been before, loved it)
Esca (thought the New Yorker peice on Pasternak was great)
Public (recommended by friend of the NZ owners)
Casimir (been before, loved it)
Spotted Pig (husband list)
