Haven't been to NY in years and am coming for a few days next week w/ a group of friends. Anyway, here is our list so far, please help me fill in the blanks. I'd like to keep the $$$ down to the low to moderate level as we're already planning on spending a fair amount at a Babbo/Yasuda.
Thursday, dinner: reservations at Babbo (whew and Yay!).
Friday, lunch: Ramen Setagaya (any other ramen suggestions welcome).
Friday-Sunday, leave town to see music festival Kutshers country club in Thompson/Monticello. I know this is off topic, but any good suggestions for any food within 20-30 miles of here would be greatly appreciated. I've done absolutely no research and am sort of consigned to not getting any great meals during this portion of the trip. Any surprises would be an absolute bonus.
Monday, late lunch: Papaya King (a few of us love our hot dogs).
Monday, late dinner: Going to see another concert at Roseland Ballroom, our hotel is near Washington Park. Any suggestions for something tasty open late around or between these two? Beer or alcohol availability a plus.
Tuesday, lunch: Open to suggestions. We'll probably be at MOMA at some point in the day, but proximity for lunch isn't so important. Katz's is being considered, but not everyone is real excited about it. Late breakfast in lieu of lunch also an option.
Tuesday, dinner: Sushi Yasuda for me and my brother, reservation for omakase at bar.
Wedneseday, breakfast: anything quick around Washington Park.
Thanks a lot in advance for helping out with this, I've been eagerly counting the days for this trip for a few months now. Really excited about the places we're going to, but there is no reason I can't get even more excited by any suggestions you all might have. Thanks!
