Dinner in Manhattan? Babbo, Degustation?

Mintycake | Apr 23, 2008 06:56 AM

Hi there

We are in town at the end of May for a wedding. We have two dinner spots open - Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (for a very quick bite before we go to the airport).

We'd like to go to the theatre as well either Saturday or Sunday, so one of the meals will have to be near the theatre district and/or early/quick.

I'd like to try Babbo and have heard great things on this board about Degustation. Ideally I'd like to do both these restaurants. Price is not a concern (up to $150 pp OK). My questions are these:

1) What's a good restaurant near theatres that won't keep me all night?
2) What's a good place for my quick pre-airport bite?
3) A great food experience for our "leisurly" night?

Also, how are the portions at Degustation? Will I be full after the tasting menu?

We also have lunches open too but would prefer something quick as we'll be doing the tourist thing.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
