Weekend visit in 33 days' time

ManInTransit | Apr 12, 2014 06:35 AM

Hi everyone, used Chowhound for fantastic advice for my last two trips from London in 2009 and 2012 so we're setting up a guilty weekend in Manhattan at the end of a road trip from New Orleans.

Only 3 nights and coming up to the 28 day point so some advice on our itinerary would be much appreciated.

For background on previous trips we've been to and enjoyed: Jungsik, Blue Hill, Jewel Bako, Peter Lugar, Momofuku Noodle, Minetta Tavern and a whole bunch of informal places like Freamons, Katz etc.
WD-50 was a crushing disappointment on our last trip.

And small complication - my wife has just discovered she is pregnant. We're determined to keep heading out but it means alcohol isn't really important, and we want to avoid the sort of place that does strict no choice tasting menus and is going to be a pain/refuse to accommodate.

At the moment I'm thinking:
Day 1: Momofuku Ssam and EMP (I'm assuming they will accommodate)
Day 2: Di Fara and Grammercy Tavern
Day 3: Xi'an and Blue Smoke

Nomad will come into it somewhere if I can't get the EMP reservation but seems a bit narrow to do both.

Many thanks in advance
