Aussies in NY - what do you think of our itinerary?

perrin99 | Aug 23, 201306:40 PM

This is my first post in chowhound!!! We are all booked to arrive in NYC on 21 September and we will staying around midtown until 29 September. I have been to NYC a few times but this is a first for DH.

DH is a pescovegetarian. I am allergic to crustaceans. We love to eat and our difference in diets is usually not a problem with all the choices available out there.

We are not into fancy type settings and sometimes we prefer to try small servings at different places than just one big meal.

Here is how the plan is looking so far:

21.09 - arrive in NYC around 4pm
Go for a walk. Maybe a small snack?
Meet with friends around 8pm at Mudville 9 for buffalo wings

Lunch either at Moma or ShakeShack
Musical at 3pm
Keens for dinner. Do I need reservations? How is the non-steak food?

9/11 memorial
Lunch at Locanda Verde
Train to Brooklyn and walk back.
Dinner with friends at Kanoyama 6.30pm

Stay around midtown
Where should we have lunch? We were thinking momofuku lunch to go or The Modern
Buy take away for the game from Dean&Delucca or should I go to Russ&Daughters. or should we try Molino Rojo or Feeding tree at the Bronx?
7pm Yankees game
Late drinks at R-Lounge

We are going at 6.30pm to Honorable William Wall by riding on Admiral's Launch.
I was thinking either halal food or soul food afterwards. We may want warm/comfort food after the boat ride.

Dinner at Babbo

American Museum of Natural History - grab a snack of pizza bianca at Grandaisy Bakery

Dinner at Momofuku.... which one? Ma peche or ssam-bar?

Walk around west village. Liked this link from another post in chowhound

Lunch at Balthazar or Minetta Tavern?
Fly out that night to Miami

Other questions:
Grocery stores in midtown? - DH wakes up early and hungry. Anywhere I go I pack a simple pre-breakfast that keep us going until we find a place we want to eat. I am thinking yoghurt and oatmeal.

Bagels around midtown? Since bagels don't keep well overnight, taking R&D bagels back to the hotel for brekkie the next day is not an option.

We enjoy afternoon tea with pastries. Any particular places that you recommend? Bouchon bakery is near where we are staying. Bosie Tea Parlor looks nice and recommended in seriouseats. Dominique Ansel seems to have mixed reviews.

What is you opinion on il Buco Alimentari for afternoon chichetti and biscotti?

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated
