Betany, Wildair, EMP, Mailino: Critique my Solo Weekend

CFByrne | Oct 30, 2016 11:00 AM

Food obsessed guy heading up to Manhattan, solo, next weekend, I'll be in town from appx Friday noon thru Mon mid-afternoon.

For comparison, some of my favorites include everything from Gramercy Tavern, The Modern, Le B, Robertas, and Momofuku Ssam, to Gray's Papaya, Don Antonio by Starita, Eately, Porchetta, Motorino...

Staying near 3rd and 51st.

Anyway, here's what I've got lined up as of now:

Friday
12Noon Lunch Betany
6PM Dinner WildAir
9PM Interesting cocktail spot downtown?

Saturday
8AM Bagels EssaBagel
12Noon Lunch EMP Bar
6PM Dinner Mailino Bar for carb loading...
Early to bed...

Sunday
Run NYC Marathon
7PM NEED Some place casual, fun, lively, maybe with football on, for post-race dinner and some beers. A few years ago I dined at PJ Clarke's bar (an old old fav) and that was fine but I'd like something new.

Monday
12Noon Lunch at Roberta’s (old favorite) on way to LGA.

Thoughts / Comments? I'm confirmed at all of the above spots, so I don't need "how to snag a spot" advice. What I would love though is best "do not miss" bites at each.

Thanks!

Wildair,
Maialino,
Roberta's,
Gramercy Tavern,
The Modern,
The Modern Improvement Club,
Momofuku Ssäm Bar,
Gray's Papaya,

Motorino Pizzeria,
