Final meal in NYC... Ideas and Thank you!

FattyDumplin | Jul 24, 2011 10:16 AM

So tomorrow, we're spending our final evening in NYC at 78th and Broadway before moving to the West Coast. We'll have a high floor terrace but will be exhausted after a day of packing and moving. But, I'd love to have one last meal on the terrace (to achieve my final NYC goal...) after the kids go down.

First though, wanted to thank everyone on the Manhattan board. I honestly love reading everyone's writing / reviews and I always feel a bit silly writing my reviews because they seem so unrefined compared to some posters. And, even though "fine" dining really isn't my thing and I rarely do it, I absolutely have enjoyed vicariously the amazing reviews of Eleven Madison, Le Bernardin, etc... even though I typically don't enjoy such restaurants because I tend to like things more chill, it's like I can taste and feel each unbelieveable morsel as I read all your reviews. So far that, and for introducing more food finds than I was ultimately able to try, thank you!

Now for that final meal. I was thinking Shake Shack because they are my favorite burger or simply getting a ribeye from Fairway because I've always enjoyed their steaks. Alternatively, I could go and round up some nice cheeses, charcuterie and breads from within a 10 block radius, but my fear is I'll be too tired to do so. Any other ideas?
