NYC vacation - high end restaurants plus other typical American?

swedegal | May 1, 2007 09:33 AM

In about two weeks, my boyfriend and I (Swedish, 30 yo) are going to New York for 10 days. We will be staying in Harlem near Marcus Garvey Park but plan to go everywhere in Manhattan(posted these questions on the Manhattan board too) and some to the outer boroughs as well. A big feature of our trip will, of course, be FOOD. I have a lot of questions, so have broken them down into two posts. !

I am a "pescatarian"(no meat other than fish or seafood), but my boyfriend eats everything. We don´t like overly touristy places, but as long as the food is fabulous they´re OK.

In any of the outer boroughs, what would you recommend for...

1. High end type restaurant (dinner)?

2. High end type restaurant (lunch)?

3. Brunch?

4. Seafood and/or caviar?

5. Classic American Diner?

6. Soul Food?

7. Steaks (for the boyfriend...)?

8. Bagels, bialys?

9. New York style Cheesecake? How is Juniors in Brooklyn?

10. Bakeries?
