I'm set to fly to NYC tonight (coming from Los Angeles!) and have one final question on dining!
I've decided to keep my reservations for Daniel, Babbo, and EMP, but will probably do something other than Le Bernardin for my last night (Saturday) in the city.
What do you guys think of the following places (and of course, any other recs are appreciated!):
53rd St. and Halal Court
Marea (too similar to Babbo?)
Kyotofu (planning on Momofuku Ssam for lunch during trip, would this be too similar?)
Union Square Cafe
I'll probably be dining solo so for places that are harder to get reservations, I would try the bar/lounge area.
