Please let me know if my NYC choices are good picks

Adam_In_London | Jul 25, 2011 10:42 AM

I've chosen a list of places following looking on here, guide books, etc. These picks are either lower or mid range price points (the high end stuff is easier to choose myself). I am in New York for a few days so i won't be doing all of these, but would be nice to have a list of places I know that I can guarantee a good meal.

If any of these are stinkers then do let me know. Also if any of these picks require an far in advance reservation then I'd appreciate the heads up on that as well.
