ASNYET: Planning assistance required

HungryHoward | Apr 21, 2003 02:03 PM

Yes, it's that time of year for our ASNYET: "Annual Support New York's Economy Trip." My wife and I will be heading to the city in a few weeks for a quick weekend (three nights/two days) of dining, shopping and helping Mayor Bloomberg raise additional sales tax dollars.

I'd appreciate your chow-advice and insight. I've narrowed down the field for each of our three dinners: late-night Italian in the Village, "anything other than Daniel, JG, ADNY splurge" and American in the Village or Soho. With all, I'm looking for the best overall experience.

Friday night -- Lupa or Gonzo

Saturday night -- Le Bernardin, Bouley, Cafe Boulud, March, Tocqueville, Veritas

Sunday night -- Blue Hill or Annisa

Not too get too needy, but let me know if there's anything specific on the menu that's a "must" (if not simply the tasting menu, as appropraite) and if there's a bar/hotel/another restaurant nearby where I can fulfill my wife's "before dinner cocktail" request.

(For context, the last two years we've enjoyed Grammercy Tavern, Craft, Babbo, Town and db Bistro; on the flip side, had a bad experience at Guastavino's.)

Thanks for the valued recommendations.
