Just booked last minute trip to NY. Arriving Friday, Jan 8 in time for lunch and leaving Sunday around 330p.
Plan to go to theater either Friday or Saturday night but will be 90 minute, no intermission so could do a late dinner (Bernard-Jacobs Theater).
Food is the key. Prefer smaller, intimate neighborhood restaurants but open to anything. Don't like ornate, heavy dining rooms and don't really want a 3-4 hour tasting menu. However, price is not an issue. Like all cuisines, especially Italian. Prefer lighter over heavy. Desserts are not an interest at all but like a nice wine or saki list. Tried to get into Lupe on recommendation and may do for lunch though dinner looks doubtful. Some other recommendations from friends were Chiyona, Cafe Cluny, Momofuka Noodle.
Coming from Atlanta where some of our favorites are Shaun's, Rathbuns, Sotto Sotto, Holeman and Finch.
I did review several recent posts but am having a hard time getting a handle on the best plan and would appreciate any advice.
