So ive arrived in Manhattan for a three month business trip . Im based mid town east , i know that there are lots of frequently asked questions ill do my best not to ask and i will take time to wade through the Manhattan board which is cool . Im going to be doing some business entertaining and want to get an idea of the best restaurants to do this at .Im looking at three categories really 1/Upscale top top tent pole "you'll never get reservations" type for seriously making impressions ,2/ The decent lunch at a nice place type ideal or the real lets do some business over a nice bit of Chow, then im after the real out there left field "hey this is different well remember this meal " type of place .
Also im used ( coming from London) to having supermarkets ( wallmart type) right on my doorstep , is it me or do all Manhattan ites travel off island for this type of experience in shopping for fresh and other food stuffs. there are plenty really world-class deli experiences close by but not the broad shop .
phew ! any help greatly appreciated
