I'll be in New York for the day on a Saturday and would like recommendations for a couple of places (say for the lunch hour, then for early evening before I head back to the airport). Last time I was in town, I thoroughly enjoyed The Modern. I will be in the Times Sq area and also want to walk The High Line. A few suggestions for a solo diner, light appetizers and/or small plates, great wine and/or cocktails would be greatly appreciated!
In Chicago, I love The Girl & The Goat and Balena.
