I'm coming to NYC for the first weekend of Dec, staying in an apartment near Penn Station. After extensive research, my food itinerary is below - any thoughts??
Any other suggestions for breakfasts would be great, somewhere near the apt, or across in Hell's Kitchen. I can only manage about a 10-min walk before breakfast or I turn into a raging monster which is not a good look for a romantic weekend! Either a diner, a cafe, or just a takeout bakery.
Lunch: Shake Shack 8th/44th
Highline Park, Hell's Kitchen, explore
Dinner (early): Babbo. Plan B: La Silhouette
Breakfast: skylight diner/tick tock diner/wichcraft/macaron cafe
Shopping, touristy Xmas stuff, 5th avenue and central park
Lunch: Ma Peche/Milk Bar? Angelo's pizza? A deli?
Dinner: drinks at Mandarin Oriental MOBar
Cheap dinner nearby?? e.g. noodles, pizza
Lunch: Katz/Russ and Daughters?
WTC memorial, Battery Park, Brooklyn. Transit Museum. Botanic Gardens?
Dinner: Peter Luger/Brooklyn ice cream factory
Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Bar Seven Five/Rise Bar
Pm: Minetta Tavern brunch
Am I missing an essential NY experience?
