canadian cooks visiting nyc for the first time

noskcid | Aug 20, 201310:27 AM

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!

Fine Dining:
Per Se
La Bernadin
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?)
Employees only
Booker & Dax
Dead rabbit
Clover Club
Flat Iron

Non- Fine Dining:
Katz deli
Guss' pickles
John Dory oyster bar
