Hi fellow foodies,
I am new here and have found the forum and site very informative! Can you please suggest some of the better fine dining restaurants in NYC to try in 7 days? We plan to go to 5-6 restaurants for lunch/dinner.
My partner and I are going to New York City (first time) for a week next month and am putting together a shortlist of fine dining restaurants and other "Must eats!"
I went to find the 2011 Michelin guide to Best Restaurants in NYC, but my local bookstores do not stock it.
I have spent some time researching and reading restaurant reviews, and have so far have the following:
- Gordon Ramsay at the London
- Jean Geroges
- L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon
- Le Bernardin
- Per Se
- The Modern
- Blue Ribbon
We are not rich enough to eat at all these restaurants, but given that its about 2 weeks before we leave for NYC, I wanted to decide on which restaurants and make a reservation before we depart.
We are not picky eaters and neither of us drink wine - as we are not intending to go for the tasting menu each time, (instead I was hoping we can do several 3 course lunch/dinner sets on offer). We have no particular preference on cuisine types.
If we were to do the degustation/tasting menu at one restaurant - which would it be?
I was wondering which websites you usually check for reviews on restaurants? The ones I have found so far are Yelp, MenuPages, tripadviosr and of course here.
I am reading older threads to find out restaurant recommendations, but if anyone can suggest a few fine dining places or give some feedback/advice (or name restaurants that I've missed), that would be greatly appreciated! :)
On top of the fine dining list, I am also looking into "must eat food/places in NYC" - would definitely want to try Pizza, Bagels, Steak burgers etc
I'm from Australia and will be staying in 53rd St and 7th Ave (near Le Bernadin!)
I've read the thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/781072 and all the informative replies/links there, so much information here! It's like a foodies dream website! :)
