We've been doing some board searching but would love some expert opinions on what we've got so far...we're fairly adventurous, budget is not unlimited but we love a bargain on some good chow. Staying at 29th and 7th; we don't mind doing a bit of walking.
Day 1: arriving mid-afternoon, thinking of trying to get to Mary's Fish Camp for lobster rolls during their lunch hours (had them at Pearl last time and loved them. Are they as good at Mary's?). Not sure how much energy we'll have for evening activities or how hungry we'll be after a late lunch. Thinking about doing LES Tenement Museum. Any great small bites near there or near our hotel? Maybe Shake Shack? Dumplings in Chinatown (we liked Joe's Shanghai last time)? Or Katz's Deli? (may need to do a comparison between Montreal and NY bagels, and Montreal smoked meat and NY pastrami!)
Day 2: any yummy weekday brunch places? Going to a matinee at 45th & B'way at 2pm. Might try to squeeze in a visit to MoMA before the show. Planning for Perry St. early-bird spring special thingy, then to a show at the Bowery Ballroom that night.
Day 3: wide open so far! What should we do? Maybe MoMA - what should we eat? Need to leave for home by mid-afternoon. Some possibilities: Burger Joint, Momofuku (which one?), Donburi-ya (one of us has a thing for donburi and it's impossible to find in Montreal). It would probably be prudent to go easy (budget and calorie-wise) for one breakfast - any good cheap diners near our hotel?
Any input welcome! Merci.
