Help for London hounds - interesting and different in New York

ManInTransit | Oct 18, 2012 03:10 PM

We are two hounds who are regulars on the London board coming to New York for the first time in a few years.

Given we’re coming from a city that’s pretty diverse foodwise we would love some help identifying the uniquely New York places that offer food and experiences that are hard to get in the UK.

Last time we went to Peter Lugar, Jewel Bako, Katz and Freamons and enjoyed them all but looking for something a bit different. We'll eat anything but Steak/Sushi/French/Indian/Fine dining all fairly well served here and in Europe.

Provisionally we were looking at something like this

Day 1: Mattei Tavern (late dinner after landing)
Day 2: Jing Fong and Jungsik
Day 3: Lunch maybe in Brooklyn (Grimaldi’s?) WD-50 for dinner
Day 4: The Breslin brunch. Momofuku Ssam or maybe Ko in the evening.
Day 5: Somewhere streety on the go for lunch. Ippudo perhaps for dinner.

But hugely open to ideas. Staying either in Meatpacking or Lower East Side.

Many thanks in advance
