Three of us will be visiting NYC from 31st December - 4th January and have been agonising over where to sample NYC's finest! We've been to the city a few times before so already have our favourite places, but am open to any alternative suggestions from the chowhounds.
It's important that the places are reasonably downscale - we travel light and therefore pretty much stay in casual gear.
Our planned choices are:
Breakfast: Clinton St. Baking Co / Skylight Diner
BBQ: RUB / Blue Smoke
Mac n Cheese: Blue Smoke
Burger: Burger Joint / Shake Shack
Steak: Peter Luger (if the budget will stretch) / Angelo & Maxie
Pizza: Patsys/ Grimaldi
Dessert: Rice to Riches
I would really appreciate feedback on the above, and in particular any alternative suggestions. Food is always a really big part of our trip and I like to try and get it right.
Thanks Chow Hounds :-)
