Hello fellow Chowhounders!
In a few months, after more than six years of living here (and eating here) I will be leaving the city I love (and sometimes hate -- but mostly love). It has put me in a reflective mood about those many "only in New York" things I want to do, places to see, and of course, restaurants I want to eat at before I go. This being New York, there are so many terrific options for things to eat, and I've done everything from fancy establishment and Michelin-starred to cash-only holes-in-the-wall. It can be a bit overwhelming to decide what I should spend my time (and money) on.
So I thought I'd ask all of you: if you had to put together a "bucket list" of restaurants to eat at before leaving New York, what would be on it? It can be anything from places you want to try for the first time or old guards that you've enjoyed during your time here.
