Mother/Daughter NYC Trip: Couple of Questions

cheapeatstochiceats | Jun 21, 2012 06:43 PM

My mom and I are headed to New York for a week in July. We were just there last May and had a fabulous time eating at EMP, The Modern etc. but this trip we are going to skip this route!

I have already made a reservation at NoMad for dinner because we loved EMP and I am extremely excited to go. Luckily, I snagged a reservation before the NYT article came out! Our first night we are going to be eating at Peasant because we went last time and really enjoyed our food. Can anyone suggest more Italian restaurants like this? I consider Peasant more rustic Italian and less composed which we really enjoy.

We went to Osteria Morini last time which was good, but I am thinking about maybe going to Marea or Ai Fiori? Which one would people prefer? My mom is not a big fish lover, but she LOVES seafood.

We missed going to Locanda Verde last time so I made a reservation for Saturday brunch there. We also need brunch for Sunday, which will be our last meal before we head home. We went to Maialino for breakfast twice last time and loved it. We definitely want to go again but I think we will just go for breakfast and not brunch. I know Minetta Tavern is loved on this board, but my mom and I prefer having breakfast items rather than lunch items for brunch. Are the breakfast items just as good as the more lunch geared items?

We are also seeing Once at 8pm and I am considering going to Danji beforehand....Will there be a long wait if we get there around 6? Has anyone gone there recently and experienced long wait times? This is on a wednesday.

Thanks in advance for any help!
