hey new york chow hounders!
We are 2 professional cooks working in the restaurant industry in the west coast, and are planning a trip that would not be forgotten! we will be staying at the Mela hotel, in the time square area.
We would like to experience all that new york has to offer in just 7 days (oct 23-30) we've got a very limit list now due to the fact that we dont live there (mostly fine dining), and would like some suggestions on local hangouts and definitely not touristy places. Cheers and thanks in advance for the help!
Eleven Madison Park
(these 3 will be the main focus of our trip (crossing fingers on the reservations, any insiders tips on actually getting the reservation?)
Jean-georges for lunch (heard about the killer lunch prix fixe)
Drinking Establishments (are these the places to be?)
Booker & Dax
Non- Fine Dining:
John Dory oyster bar
