I have a friend visiting from Paris this summer. We are spending 3-4 days in NYC.
I know nothing can compare to Paris restaurants, but I'd like to try. I am sure I can show him Ethiopian, Afghan, Lebanese, Peruvian, Moroccan, Vietnamese, Korean.. given that this is the US I will have to show him Mexican. I know he likes BBQ, too.
Can you tell me please: 1. what other countries have I forgotten? I know with only 3-4 days I will need to triage for the best and 2. any places you would recommend for each country? I'm not thinking about western European cuisines, although one or two great examples of US cuisine would be good.
He is French with Iraqi/Tunisian background - so bonus if there are places to eat in NYC of their cuisines. He can't eat pork. Halal meat would be a bonus although I don't think he's that strict - but definitely no pork.
Thank you for any ideas!
