hi everyone! we are super excited and travelling to ny from la next week. this is our first eating adventure in new york. tried to do some research, so here is my rough itinerary. i realize it's a bit late to post, but value chowhounds opinions. please advise.
a few notes:
~think we are missing a pizza place don antonio's, grimaldi or lombardi's? haven't researched those yet.
not too keen on long waits, but it seems waiting might be inevitable . . .
~love laduree but not sure we want to wait and heard they don't make them at the location and are shipped over from paris? can anyone confirm?
~serendipity, cheesy, but love the movie and always wanted to go, but not sure if we want to wait so long.
here it is:
sat, arrive jfk at 5pm
~dinner at food hall by todd english? or looking for casual dinner w/o reservation
sun - are these places logistically sensical to
~lunch: maritime parc with friends (reserved)
~snack: dominique ansel bakery for madelenes and pain au chocolat
~snack: bisous ciao macaron
~snack: café habana for corn, not restaurant, around the corner
~dinner: luke’s lobster lobster roll
~ donut planet - (maybe, but don’t want to spoil appetite for le bernardin)
~drink: madeline bar at the carlyle hotel

tues - these reservations could be swayed if this is too much food in one day and to follow le bernardin
~lunch: peter luger – Burger bacon single steak (reserved)
~snack: amorino gelato
~early dinner: annisa (reserved)
~late dinner for in-laws: halal cart, chicken and rice cart (53rd and 6th) (take in-laws when they arrive)
