So I'm going with 2 other 22 year old college girls to Manhattan for a long weekend in mid-April and need some suggestions! We're big Philadelphia foodies and we're trying to do the best of the best (and still not go bankrupt in the process) over the weekend.
We're staying near Chelsea Market and plan on taking a visit there, but we're wondering where else foodie-wise to go. We really want to try Levain Bakery and we're looking for another. Also curious about any good chocolate places, brunch spots, and we're especially looking for a good place for drinks and appetizers for Friday night. We don't necessarily want bar food, but if there's any place particularly good we wouldn't be opposed to it.
Also, anywhere else we should definitely be checking out, even anything particularly good that can be carted back home with us?
Thanks in advance!
