Hello Chowhounders,

We are planning our Columbus Day weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving) trip to NYC. We've been several times before, and we are dedicated to trying only restaurants we have never been to.

Here is our proposed schedule, with some gaps. Any suggestions are welcome, but please keep in mind we are cheap, we get up early in the morning and go, and we unfortunately don't have huge appetites.

Friday (arrive around noon)

lunch: Falafel in vicinity of Port Authority (Azuri, Pick-a-Pita or Olympic Pita?)

dinner: Prix-fixe at Montparnasse prior to Broadway show (but willing to consider other reasonably priced places for steak frites near Broadway theatres)


early breakfast: somewhere near Port Authority OR Battery Park (suggestions please!)

lunch: (around 2 PM) Bouley Upstairs (will there be a wait for a table for a Saturday lunch?)

dinner: Lucali Pizza in Brooklyn


early breakfast (any good UES good breakfast place)

lunch: Patsy's Pizza in Harlem

dinner: Anything! Whatever relatively inexpensive great place you think we should try (except Momofuku as I don't eat pork)

Thanks in advance,


Want to stay up to date with this post?
