New York Food Getaway: Is this a good lineup?

Ocollegefoodie | | May 10, 2011 09:20 PM

My parents and I are heading to the city this weekend for 7 days to unwind and eat some great food. I have made reservations at several restaurants and would love input on them and to fill in the blank spaces. I have scoured this board extensively for the past couple of months so I have done some homework! We are from Oregon and get to Portland quite frequently. We love great simplistic food, but also food that is creative and imaginative. Price is not really an issue and my dad is the only drinker. We enjoy all food although my mom doesn't enjoy Indian or Japanese.

Thanks for any feedback!

Arrive late afternoon
Reservation at Peasant

Dinner: Empellon

Brunch: Maialino
Walking Brooklyn Bridge
Dinner: Schezwan Gourmet
Seeing Billy Elliot

Lunch: Manzo at 2
Dinner: The Modern Dining Room at 9
*Spent a lot of time deciding between the Modern and Corton. I switched last minute to The Modern. Hoping this is the right choice...

Lunch: EMP at 1:45
Show: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
Dinner: Shake Shack after show

Wed and Thurs I have completely open. Fri we leave around 3:30 so need lunch.
For breakfasts other than Sunday brunch, I have nothing specified because we are planning to walk everyday in Central Park. We are staying at the Metropolitan Club across from the Plaza. I have done a little research and found some casual places that we wouldn't be too dressed down in our sports clothes for. If anyone has any other recommendations for places either in the UWS or UES for breakfast that would be great!
