We are arriving NYC on 3/22 and staying near 3rd Ave & 48th St. Teen daughter wants to go shopping in SOHO. 20-something son is a good sport but he's going to want food to take his mind off the shopping ;) We all LOVE food, the more interesting the better. Willing to pay more if it's worth it, but love neighborhood dives as well.
If we want to eat & shop our way through soho, starting with lunch and then ending up somewhere fun/casual in the evening that might include a cocktail (or several), what do you suggest? We could finish shopping, return to apt and then go to Chinatown (Hunan Manor was recommended).
Then we'll need a place for breakfast/brunch on Sunday. I don't want to wait in line for hours but also don't need super extravagant either. Or, we could skip brunch, go get a cronut(?) and have lunch somewhere fun -- plans are open on Sunday so we can go anywhere.
I've been researching but am paralyed by too much info! (and overwhelmed at the office, so I'm "over" all this restaurant research). Please help!
