My boyfiend and I are going to be in New York for a long weekend. A few questions for all of you. We're looking for a nice restaurant with a pre-theatre menu (going to a concert at Alice Tully and we'll be fairly dressed up), a good place to grab picnic food, especially good bagels, and options for a group of 10 or so friends to meet up with us for drinks and then dinner. For the last question, we're thinking somewhere casual where we don't have to reserve for dinner since we don't know how many people will actually stay. And finally, is the chef's tasting in the Kitano Hotel worth it?
Thanks in advance!
