I'm leaving NYC forever - need a goodbye list

jen223 | Oct 2, 2012 03:22 PM

OK, maybe it won't be forever, but I'm still very sadly leaving NYC, and my love affair with the city's restaurants will have to come to an end. I have until mid-December before I leave. Granted I'm only moving to Princeton, NJ, but it just won't be the same!

My question for you all is: what would be on your list of eating establishments to go to one last time before you leave the city "forever"? Old standbys, new openings, low or high end, specific dishes? I've tentatively started my list below but wouldn't mind some inspiration:

Big Wong - beef chow fun
Eleven Madison Park (if I could only get a reservation...)
Corner Bistro
Torrisi Italian Specialties - tasting menu
Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar
Pok Pok NY - have never tried
Sripraphai - have never tried
La Sirene
Xi'an Famous Foods
Grimaldi's or Keste or Di Fara (for pizza fix)
Momofukus - pork buns
Peter Luger (or try St. Anselm?)
Death & Co (OK that's drinks, but still)
Little Piggy Had Roast Beef
Tia Pol
Breslin - lamb burger
