I am coming to NYC with my sister as a 50th birthday trip from South Africa. We have both been quite often , but never together and the last couple of times I have been with kids. Could you recommend some gems in our general area (staying at the Bowery Hotel), but we can also move around. Have had suggestions including Buvette, Spotted Pig, Charlie Bird and Balthazar. Would really appreciate any other ideas. We are there from Sunday to Friday.
