Back in L.A. after a wonderful weekend with my daughter who was looking at NYU, Here's our dining report
Spotted Pig - excellent lunch upstairs - delicious burgers and fries.
Gramercy Tavern - wonderful staff, excellent food, will definitely return.
Boathouse - lovely lunch overlooking the snow in Central park. The food was better than I expected.
Grand Central Oyster Bar - fresh, simple Eastern Seafood that we can not get on the West Coast.
Angelos - Italian in Little Italy that fit what we were looking for - non fussy, simple old school Italian. The dinner was great.
I think it might be true what they say - you can not have a bad meal in New York! Can't wait to return. Thank you for all of your suggestions.
