Coming to NYC next weekend, student budget, big appetite.

Hi All,

My gf and I are coming up to NYC from Philly next weekend for the Le Fooding Pop Up and just wanted to run by a couple of ideas by you guys to maximize our time in Manhattan.

Will be getting into town early Saturday, staying at the Hotel Chandler. Will probably drop out stuff off at the hotel and walk around a little, and would love a super fast, good lunchy somewhere in the Empire State Building Area or thereabouts.

Saturday Night-Why not?. Going down to Torrisi around 5 to stand in line to try for the first seating. If that falls through, I have a backup reservation at Aldea.

Saturday Night Drinks-Want to get to one cocktail bar, was thinking about PDT because it is so unique as to what we have in Philly, then any other bar recommendations are welcome and appreciated.

Sunday Brunch- Meeting a friend at the Bridle Room.

Sunday Lunchish- Maybe another quick stop somewhere for something to hold us over until the 9 pm Le Fooding dinner

Sunday Evening-Meeting more friends for drinks somewhere in Midtown East- Any suggestions?

Sunday Night- Massimo Bottura Pop Up

Any help in filling in those blanks with budget in mind would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and I am really looking forward to our stay.
