Visiting New York next week for the first time in too many years, I have not kept up with what's still worth visiting and I'd welcome some guidance. Sentimental favourites include Lupa, Prune, Daniel (before the renovations!), Cafe Boulud. Are any of these still worth visiting?
Any other suggestions for lunch or dinner? Thinking about Jean Georges for lunch. - are reservations recommended for lunch in January? Friends recommended Nobu (I'm on the fence about this). Would love to try Babbo and Per Se but since this is a last minute trip, we have not made the necessary advance reservations :( Is it really too late?
Not a fan of Danny Meyer and there's a Scarpetta in my city that I like (so would prefer to try something else while in NY). Willing to walk, take a cab, or take subway so location is not an issue. Budget allows for one pricey dinner but otherwise, willing to consider all suggestions for all kinds of cuisine. Thanks!
