Me and my girlfriend will be in NYC in the week of easter this year. Being over-average enthusiastic about food, i found Chowhound, and it is amazing!
I have noted a great deal of spots already - but would like to have your ideas as well. We will be staying close to SoHo, in Lafayette street, and preferably good eating spots should not be too far away - but of course we´re ready to move to get great chow!
Our hotels breakfast is $50 for two, so we´ll probably be shopping around for breakfast as well...
We´re looking for somewhat affordable places - budget is not tight, so if the food´s worth it - we will probably ignore that thougt.
I love the idea of "the special", the dish the different restaurants are the proudest of - and the one customers keep coming back for.
I want to have wings, ribs, steak, noodles, oysters, duck, beer, cocktails, sushi, crabcakes, NY Cheesecake, New England Clam Chowder and great salads (at least my GF does...).
We ARE tourists, but not the scared german type, so we dont need "the comfort of the tourist trap". If we do not have to reserve in advance - that´s definitively a plus for us.
Looking forward to some input and tips. This place (Chowhound), really is inspiring! Thanks in advance!
