I really enjoyed reading the 2010 thread here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/679177 when I was preparing to come to NY for the first time, and thought it might be time for a 2011 revisit! Where is on your manhattan hit list for this year?
My list (long!) is below - NB I've only been in NY for a few months so there's quite alot of older places on the list that I just haven't been to yet!
