I'm coming up from NC for a Big East Tourney game at the MSG. That first night, the plan is to go to Peter Luger. Perhaps there are better options, but I've had that steakhouse's chip on my shoulder for a very long time and need to get it off!
The next day is pretty much wide open. The first recommendation I need help with, is my friend and I would like to experience Chinatown for lunch, maybe try one of the visually appetizing hanging ducks. What options would you recommend for a chinatown lunch, and if we need to visit multilple destinations to to get the full effect, then we certainly won't limit ourselves.
I'm sure sometime in the middle of the afternoon we would want a slice or two, so if something stands out, feel free to add a favorite place or two for that, but I'm sure a good slice will be pretty easy to find.
For dinner, I don't even know exactly what we want, part of me wants to try one of the premiere Michelin Star places in NYC such as Daniel, or Per SE, or Le Bernardins, but part of me is open to anything, with a special affection for Italian, or just any great NYC restaurant. I would prefer not stuffy, but am open to any quality suggestions.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide, I am really looking forward to this brief visit.
