My fiancé and I are eloping in NYC over the Thanksgiving holiday. We are arriving late Tuesday night. We will need a late night casual place to grab drinks and snacks. Wed. we are going to try and see a show, so once again late night grub - this could be a little nicer. Is Mesa worth a visit or just overrated due to a celeb chef?
Thanksgiving night I was thinking Jean-Georges unless anyone can suggest elsewhere (I am open). I have never been, and it is on my list of eat-in-before-I-die restaurants.
We have 2 friends meeting us on Friday for the ceremony (central park) and then drinks (thinking Tavern on the Green) and finally dinner. For dinner, I was originally planning on Daniel's - also on my list. However, due to some reviews I have recently read, I now have some reservations (no pun intended). Considering the amount for 4 people, the love of my life and 2 of my closest friends, are there other, more memorable restaurants for our big day? Food is my primary concern, but atmosphere and service are pretty important for obvious reasons.
Saturday we are going to play by ear. Our friends will be with us and we will be looking to go more casual / affordable.
Any help would be appreciated.
