Hello fellow NYC chowfriends! Greetings and salutations!
I'm back!! After having a fantastic time chowing in your great city this April, I'll be paying the Big Apple another 'chow-visit' at the end of the month. This time I will be meeting up with a real foodie chowhounder visiting from Singapore.
My schedule will be tight and as such, I only have time for may be three meals max with him ( 1 lunch and 2 dinners??!! ). Based on our past dining experiences in the Big Apple and elsewhere, my current plan is WD-50, The Modern and Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare.
Question?! Is it worth our while making the trip to Brooklyn to try out Brooklyn Fare or shall we just stay in town and re-visit one of the 3* 'regulars'.?! Anything NEW ( menu-wise ) from the likes of EMP, Per Se, Daniel or Bernadin? We will be giving a pass on Jean George ( too Asian fusion ) and Masa ( my S'pore friend has eaten in ALL the 3*s in Tokyo! ).
Any 'NEW ADDITION' to the culinary scene that is worth our trying? Last time, fellow chowhounder uhockey suggested Lincoln to me and the experience turned out to be great!
Lastly, any 1* or 2* we should try? My experience with Marea was so-so and I'm not too keen on Corton, finding the plate presentation more impressive than how the food taste! FYI, during my last visit, foodwise, I found Casa Mono to be a revelation. Anything similar that might wow us? My friend loves seafood. How is Esca??!!
Thousand apologies for the chain of never-ending questions! Looking forward to reading all your expert feedback!
THX IN ADVANCE!!
