I need some help planning my stay in NYC early March. Staying at the Grammercy Park Hotel so any tips on that or around that would be great. I am looking at filling up Friday and Saturday with hand holding, eating, and drinking with my hubby. He is from NY but we don't live there now. We don't normally travel that far downtown when we visit, so interested in exploring that area (villages, tribeca, etc). Here is my rough plan, please give me any advice and fill in the blanks. I adore special ideas! Thanks!!
Thurs - possible late night bite or drink depending when he gets off work. nearby bar? or late eats place?
Fri - wander around, brkfst somewhere? then up to Campbell Apartment for romantic cocktail, then down to my fav. of last visit (he's never been) The Spotted Pig for early dinner to avoid wait. back to hotel for a drink (i will make reservations, i'm thinking 10:30??) at the Rose Bar
Sat - brunch somewhere? oysters at Aquagrill raw bar for lunch? walk around the villages, tribeca, etc. window shop, shop shop? back to hotel to change. then need good, romantic italian for dinner... tired lupa and no luck. i'm thinking 9:30. looking at crispo, da umberto, giorgio's of grammercy, Roc? grab drink at angel's share first.
any ideas would be great. we like eating and drinking and doing cooler things than we normally get to do in LA. don't mind walking as long as its not too cold. just excited to be somewhere different! like local, friendly places. sushi, french, american and italian.
