Coming to NY for 2 nights, and looking for 2 really great, cant miss dinner restaurants. More of the trendy end but still high-quality, consistent meat and inivative dishes. Traveling with a chef, so need to impress. One night must have osso bucco on the menu. Staying in midtown, but will travel anywhere for a good meal. Want to stay away from Times Square/touristy areas.
Tuesday - having an appetizer at blue smoke, but need a dinner spot
Breakfast at clinton st bakery
appetizer/drink at mesa grill
Thursday - breakfast?
Lunch - ?
