Need help entertaining first time NY visitors!

gvaz28 | Nov 12, 2008 10:24 PM

Hi guys,

I was hoping I could get some help. A couple is visiting us from australia (their first time in NY) and I would like to show them a good time on saturday (11/22). Dinner, drinks and all that. Unfortunately, they are not offering any suggestions on types of food etc, so they are leaving it completely open to me. Thus me pleading to you!

It's their first time in ny so I want them to be impressed. So ideally both the food and the scene will be amazing. We are all late 20's--2 couples, if that helps. And since i'll be picking up the tab I don't want a prix fix place (or a place where I couldn't get recommendations this late). Entrees going up to 35 or so, is perfectly fine though. I would also like some drink recommendations for that night--multiple would also work we can do something before dinner and then after. I currently had the Brandy Library for pre dinner and the Pegu Club for post dinner in mind. The locations aren't too big of a deal since we want to show them the different parts of the city anyway, so if we need to move around that although not optimal is perfectly fine.

Also a dessert place recommendation would be great. I have only tried Room 4 Dessert (possibly still closed?) and POng, both of those were great so if there is something like that it would be wonderful.

And just in general if you guys have any thoughts (food/beverage related obviously) about what I should do with them I would love the help. The are staying at the Alex hotel on the east side, and we will have about 2 days in ny together.

A ton of questions, and clearly me passing on my responsibilities and for both of those I am sorry but THANK YOU a ton in advance!
