My husband and I (late 30s) are coming to NYC Friday through Monday in early February. We lived in NYC for several years around 15 years ago, but that was pre-yelp and other easy ways to find good spots. :( We have had a bad year. I was sick through most of it, and I really want a wonderful, fun getaway. We are also ditching our kid with my mom. :) Your thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.
We like good food but are not really "foodies." We don't want to have to get too dressed up...nothing more than dressy jeans, high boots, etc... No jacket and tie. We don't want to spend a fortune on food, but we can afford it if there's something amazing we should try. We like cheap eats as much as gourmet. Also like fun cocktails.
We are staying in Times Square because I'm in the mood for bright lights, but we know how to get around the city....used to live near south st. Seaport.
Friday- get in around noon-lunch?
Show- Bridget Everett at the Public
Any good bar or place for late night snack?
Saturday-thought we'd check out the high line and eatally...could be freezing
Saturday night pre theater drinks-rum house or Russian samovar
Show-seeing John Cameron Mitchell in Hedwig!!!! Excited! This was the reason for our trip.
Late dinner- toloache-made reservations-anywhere better? Seemed like good, close-ish choice
Go to met---actually never went before
Dinner--poke around Chelsea market
Show-sleep no more or comedy cellar...still deciding...not sure I want to chance not getting in to comedy cellar and sleep no more looks fun
After dinner drinks- Raines law room ( going to make ressies when they open up)
Going to preorder my Cronuts from Dominique ansel (probably not all that but we're in NYC so why not?)
Thought we might try Beyond Sushi because we like veggie sushi rolls
Any other suggestions? Our plane doesn't leave until the evening.
Thanks in advance! Also, any good places with piano bars or slow dancing?
