My brother and I are treating each other to a Christmas holiday in NYC; staying at the Loew's Regency. I've been to NY many, many times, but this is my brother's first trip. I'd like to hear some suggestions re: restaurants to visit, so that he can have a true "NY" experience.
He loves the Food Channel and is a fabulous cook.
Places I've been and would try again if somebody thinks we should:
1. Cafe des Artistes
2. Cafe Luxembourg
3. Sardi's (pre-Broadway play)
4. Mesa Grill
8. Bryant Park (fancier restaurant)
That's all that come to mind right now. Don't want to do anything "touristy." This trip is for my brother and I want him to be able to say he's 'done' the NY restaurant scene. We'll be there three nights; and if it helps, he's 48 and I'm 50. But we're quite immature :).
Thanks very much -
