Feedback on Foodie Trip NYC -- is this too much?

Kalenden | Sep 29, 201709:23 AM

My companion and I are major, major foodies from Belgium. We have active lifestyles, like doing city trips, walking around all day, and in the evening sample a restaurant that is unique or known to that place. We especially like innovative, exotic kitchens and taking the full tasting menu + beverage pairing. We find it important to try and experience a restaurant and its food the way the chef intended so prefer chef's menus. We do have plenty of gastronomic experience but mostly in European cities and we are not especially big eaters and/or drinkers

For a special occasion, we will now go to city trip mecca: New York City! It is a 7-day trip. I have done a lot of research on what was open and known as the best of the best in NYC, also taking into account our preferences.

So we have booking, in the following order, the following restaurants: Del Posto, Kyo Ya, Cosme, Le Bernardin, Indian Accent, Keens and Momofuku Ko.

Now I was wondering what your overall opinion would be on the doability to fully experience these restaurants? We do have experience with fine-dining, did a similar 5-day trip in Barcelona and London, but (1) this is the first time we will do so in America and (2) this is for seven days so I am a bit uncertain and want to prevent being overloaded or becoming unwell.

Any piece of advice you can give us? Such as "This is impossible, portions are much bigger here", "In restaurant X, they serve way too little/much so do Y". Bit of an open question, my apologies, but it is for a very special occasion and I want to make the trip so memorable as I can for my companion who sorely needs it and experience all there is to do without feeling unwell.

(Recap: we like tasting menus, budget is not an issue, saved a long time )
