Am coming to NY with girlfriend in tow at the end of October.
We arrive (very) late Wednesday and leave Sunday evening.
Meal plan so far:
Thursday dinner: Buddakan (to be booked a month in advance)
Friday dinner: River Cafe (booked)
Saturday dinner: ?
Sunday lunch: Was going to have a long lunch in Gordon Ramsay at the London (we're staying in the hotel, yes I am english & I know it's predictable!) before heading to JFK for the evening flight, but they don't do lunch on Sunday.
So the questions I have, if you could possibly help, are
1) What to do on Saturday night? We eat anything and though budget isn't necessarily an issue, places like Per Se are probably a little bit pushing it. We don't mind travelling around Manhattan, and we don't necessarily need to go anywhere smart, just somewhere with really good food and a bit of a buzz.
2) What to do for Sunday lunch? The hotel has recommended the Maze restaurant instead, but it seems to be a bit of a second fiddle to the main event of GR's. It is convenient however as we can leave our bags with the concierge whilst we eat.
Any help welcomed. From reading on ChowHound I quite like the sound of Degustation for Saturday night perhaps.
