I've got 5 days in NYC coming up. I'm a vegetarian, looking for suggestions on dishes & restaurants / if I'm missing anything exciting / if anything I have listed should be skipped / if anything on my list is a must-go.
What I've got booked:
Planning to drop in to either (maybe both) Roberta's or Lilia
What I'm considering:
Nix / Dovetail
Casual Food options
Daily provisions (kruller, breakfast sandwich)
Salavation burger (veggie burger)
Xi'an famous foods
Prince Street Pizza
Bakeries / etc
Du’s donuts and coffee
Aux Merveilleux de Fred
Dominique Ansel Kitchen
Dominique Ansel Bakery
I like delicious food (who doesn't?) -- modern, rustic, whatever -- and am particularly drawn to things that are difficult to cook at home or would inspire some of my home cooking. I like to try interesting / new combinations or techniques (not necessarily modernist cuisine, but in that realm), but taste is most important.. not too fussy about ambiance or service. I have a preference for new restaurants / younger chefs, but also like established restaurants that do their thing really well (especially if that's ethnic cuisine.. for example, I wasn't too impressed by French Laundry and tend to stay away from more established restaurants that are doing consistently good but not amazing dishes).
I also like trying out newer / more interesting concepts, especially fast casual done well (i.e. I would consider dizengoff, pasta flyer, made nice, superiority burger in that realm).
Thanks in advance.
