As mentioned in the post below this one, my wife and I are moving away from this wonderful city. Before I go, however, I want to make sure to hit all the best little tastings and experiences that this great place has to offer, such as a cocktail at No. 9 Park, BBQ at Blue Ribbon, and hot chocolate at L.A. Burdick's.
I'd love to hear your suggestions for can't-miss dishes and places before we leave. Please keep in mind, however, that since I am trying to do as much as possible before leaving, and working on a normal person's budget, "cocktail at No. 9 Park" is somewhat more practical of a suggestion than "dinner at L'Espalier every night for a week."
I've loved hearing the opinions of Chowhounds over my years here, so please, do me a favor and take 10 seconds to offer your few can't-miss experiences here. I really do value the suggestions highly.
