Hello everyone! My husband and I will be traveling to NYC next Saturday. It's the first trip for both of us. If it matters, we're staying on W 14th. I'm one of those people that loves to plan (and loves to eat), so I've got a whole food itinerary worked out.
I'd love any thoughts/suggestions on my picks. Please let me know if I've left any glaring holes in my plan. I've tried to focus on cuisines that we can't get at home because we love to try new things.
Our hotel offers a lovely breakfast, so we'll probably be taking advantage of that most days. We're not big morning eaters anyway. I'll probably pick up a bagel at Murray's one morning just because we're close.
Dinner at Txikito
Brunch at August
Pre-theater dinner at Gazala’s Place
Post-theater drinks/snacks at Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar or Buvette
Lunch at Num Pang
Dinner at Eleven Madison Park
Lunch at Momofuku Ssam Bar
Dinner at Celeste (Or other Italian in the same price range with a similar feel- I'm open to suggestions in any neighborhood.)
Lunch - Open to suggestions where I can get something relatively healthy and under $20pp. I'll be at the Fashion Institute of Technology that afternoon if there is anywhere decent to eat nearby.
Drinks at Dead Rabbit Parlour
Dinner at Motorino
Abbreviated Lower East Side food tour for lunch-

Breakfast at Westville, Cafe Cluny or Buvette
Thank you all so much for your help! I've been reading the boards for weeks trying to plan this trip, and it's been a fantastic resource. I will definitely follow up with some kind of trip report after we get home.
