We are headed to NY for our annual May trip. I have a few places nailed down but need some help filling in the rest. I am looking not so much for destination restaurants but more for local's type places. Also nose to tail places or menus with offal choices. Last year we went to Meatball Shop and Empellon and liked the vibe and food of both places. Something similar would be great as we need to balance out the more expensive restaurants. We also love a well made cocktail and would love suggestions on where to get one. We are staying in midtown.
WD50 ( have reservation )
Minetta Tavern for the burger ( I know a lot of you think it's over hyped but the husband has to have it.
