Upcoming B-day Trip to NYC

kronik | | May 14, 2013 11:36 PM

That time of year again where I come to the boards looking for recommendations on my tentative itinerary. Back to NYC it is..

So the short list of where we've been already -
Ai Fiori
Per Se
Eleven Madison Park

What we have planned this time around:

Thursday Lunch - Motorino's
Thursday Dinner - Tentative.. was thinking Peter Luger's?
Bar - Pouring Ribbons

Friday Breakfast - Dominque Ansel Bakery, love this place. (any recommendations for similar spots?)
Friday Lunch - open
Friday Dinner - Brooklyn Fare

Saturday Breakfast - Ess-a-Bagel
Saturday Lunch - Momofuku Ko
Saturday Dinner - open
Bar - The Wayland

Sunday Breakfast - Shopsin's
Sunday Lunch - Katz's
Sunday Dinner

Monday Breakfast - open
Monday Lunch - open

Hotel is in Midtown.. we usually take the train everywhere but sometimes will cab.

Honestly, I'm not sure where else to go. We like cocktail bars (D&C, AyA, Angel's Share, PDT) but I'm not sure I feel like going through the enormous hassle of 3 hour waits or needing to make reservations this time around. We have pretty broad palates and like trying new places. Torrisi and NoMad are what I'm thinking currently.
