My brother and I are about to visit NYC for the first time. We are in our 20s and are staying in the East Village. I think we are going to hit up Locanda Verde and either Momofuku or Ippudo.
But what about for Spanish? From what I've read it seems like these three are solid options: Tertulia, Txikito, and Salinas. If you had to choice one, which?
Food comes first, followed by atmosphere and then drinks.
On a side note, would anyone say Kin Shop is a must above any of the former?
