Hello, I live in Tokyo now, but my wife and I will be in NYC for 2 days (July 4th, and 5th). I was wondering if anybody could recommend some places to eat while we are in the city. I'm used to Tokyo prices so I don't mind paying about $100 for dinner. Also is there any place, or things to do that you would recommend for the 4th of July going on in the city? We'll be staying in Manhattan.
Here is the list of food we wanted to try. Any help greatly appreciated!
Hummus/Falafel (I've heard about Hummus Place and Azuri Cafe, but not sure)
Family style Italian (simple red sauce)
Chinese (just simple fried rice/egg rolls)
Anything worth going to in Little Italy?
Bars (anything like the Mission area of San Francisco? We're in our late 20's)
Sorry for the long post, but I haven't been back to the states in over 3 years. I wanna gain 5 pounds! ;) Thanks and respect
