I'll be in NYC for only three nights. This is my third (short trip) here. Hoping to try new places so, with that said:
I've been to Babbo (three times!), Gramercy Tavern (dinner), Le Maison du Chocolat, Di Fara's, Grimaldi's, Otto, Russ and Daughters, (that place with the pastrami sandwhiches... brain fart with the name!), "The Cart," Grey's Papaya, as well as Tony Dragonas' saurkraut dog cart too. All these places I've loved because they're so uniquely New York (I am from L.A.). For this trip I've planned sofar:
Thursday dinner: Gotham Bar and Grill
Breakfast- (need a suggestion)
Lunch- Shake Shack
Dinner- Aureole (We have reservations here but, if we catch a show Friday night instead of Saturday, we will probably end up at "The Cart").
Lunch- Gramercy Tavern (in the Tavern part of the restaurant)
Dinner- (hoping to see a show so, something quick... maybe I'll hit up "The Cart" again). If we are unable to see a show, we might try to get into Pastis, which I'm fearing we will have nil chance of getting into. I'm nervous because we might not be able to find a decent place to eat that has seating!!!
So... there's my itinierary with all its quirks and what not. Do you think that the places I've picked are a good representation of what is unique to New York, and are chowish places to dine in New York?
