I am planning a trip up to NYC from DC for a friend's 35th. He is a former gourmet bread baker and my husband is a regular on Chowhounds DC board. So they care.
I have been reading the board for the last couple of weeks and based on your thoughts here is what i have so far. Tell me if i have holes and help me pick between some great places that we have reservations holding. Thanks.
Union Street Cafe Sat Lunch
Cafe Boulud or Hearth for Sat Dinner
Balthazar Sun Brunch
Babbo, Bouley, or Per Se for Sun Dinner
