Hi from Manhattan!
For our anniversary we usually visit places we're interested in eating in different cities (specifically those we've never been to). First was Boston. Second DC. Now Chicago.
We're going to Alinea and one or both of Bayless' place. Other than that, we're open to any suggestions. We're both in the restaurant industry (husband is a Chef and I'm a Manager) and are curious as to all your recs.
Of those who know NY, some of our favorites are Tia Pol, Lupa, Momofuku, Sushi Seki, Shake Shack, Burger Joint (20th st & 3rd ave), Rub, Daisy Mae BBQ.
Also, being THE place for Deep Dish - what are everyone's top two DEEP DISH PIZZA places?
And any other local places you take your friends to or visit FREQUENTLY and are never disappointed?
Thanks and sorry so vague. But we really are open to anything you all throw out.
(You can email me as well.)
