I've made dozens of recs to New Yorkers visiting Miami so I'm hoping I can get some NYC love in return. Will be in NYC for the obligatory X-mas shopping weekend (my girlfriend picks the activities, I pick the restaurants). So far my list to be narrowed down includes Tabla, 71 Clinton, Veritas, Jewel Bako, Spice Market for dinner (on a Sat or Sun) and Casa Mono, BreadBar, for lunch. Brunch on Sunday will be limited to Prune because it's my favorite place where I have my one Bloody Mary a year.
I know my tastes are a mess but all suggestions are appreciated.
