Wife & I will be visiting NYC for 4 days in early December, staying at a friend's place in Chelsea. Hoping for 2 nice dinners and a few casual spots. Here's what I'm currently considering. Please let me know if you agree/disagree with these, or have alternative suggestions. Sorry for such a broad post...I'll search the boards for more specifics on individual spots- just haven't had time yet. Thanks!!!!!!
Really want to head out to Peter Luger 1 night. Aware that everyone has their own favorite steak spot, but it's such an institution...
Per Se- top of list, though I'm hoping to go to French Laundry after the holidays, & would rather spend $1K over the entire weekend rather than at 1 meal.
Pearl Oyster Bar (better than Mary's?)
Oyster Bar at Grand Central?
Also, might have to sample Gray's Papaya?
Shopsin's- worth checking out since the move?
I won't even ask about pizza...another post.
Thanks again, and can't wait to eat my way around Manhattan!
