8 Days of Eating in NYC

KLD1967 | Aug 30, 2010 11:50 AM

Not that I want to plan my trip around food, but I really think I'm going to...Really need to narrow down my restaurant lists....I'll be in NYC from Sept. 23-30 and I'm staying in the East Village and would love to get a list of local places.

I'm on a wait list for Per Se and am thinking EMP as my back up for my one really expensive dinner.

Debating between Mario Batali restaurants or Daniel Bolud for another meal.

On my list of want to try....

Amy Ruth's
Momofuku (not sure which one)
Rhong-Tiam Express
Falai Panatteria
Blue Smoke
Katz's (only because every time I've been to NYC I've never been and am staying around the corner from it)

On the 25th, we're going to a Red Sox/Yankees game and would love to go to a restaurant in the Bronx.

I love good food whether it's from a hole in the wall or a higher end restaurant. I know everybody has different ideas but I've always gotten some great ideas from these boards so I know that you'll not steer me wrong!

I would love to go to a really great Italian restaurant while I'm here. I'll be doing pizza quite a bit - (Grimaldi's has been my nemesis in that every time I've been to NYC, something has stopped me from getting in there but not this time!) and have been to Lombardi's, Joe's and John's over the years.

I have 8 days of eating to do on this trip and tend to take advantage of every minute of it!
