coming to NYC for James Beard Awards

Coming to NYC in May for the James Beard Awards, and was hoping to get some restaurant advice. My New York magazine subscription ran out last year, and after 12 years of living in SF, I'm a little out of touch with what's new and interesting in Manhattan. I was thinking Aka Cafe, Prune, Pearl's (I have a lobster-roll itch that needs to be scratched!)--mostly looking for small, intriguing places, not the big-ticket places like Danube or Daniel. Any suggestions appreciated! (happy to reciprocate with Bay Area suggestions, since SF is so hip now, according to the NYT and Gourmet) Also, anyone got any info about the Gershwin Hotel? It seems cool and cheap, but wondering if it's going to be too scruffy...(I'm a mid-30s, fairly boho gal, but I want a good night's sleep and a clean sink...)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
