Overnight trip - in search of local gems

peppermint pate | Oct 9, 2009 01:20 PM

Thanks to a close friend's birthday, my sister and I are flying to NYC (from Toronto) for a quick overnight trip. We've both been to New York many times but not for a couple of years.

For sunday dins, we're looking for a local gem. Using the lexicon of past faves, we'd love the quality of food from some place like Hearth or Tides in a cozy, buzzy room (maybe like August or Lupa). And warm friendly service please. We both love the West village but anywhere downtown is fine. A few on my shortlist - Little Owl, Perilla, Market Table, Terroir, maybe the bar at Babbo? Blue hill? Other?

We will probably go to Via Quadronno for a cappucino but would love a downtown (weekday) breakfast spot with great egg dishes and great americanos.

And for lunch, thinking of momofuko ssam. Or did I read somewhere that Jean georges has a newish Asian resto? Alternatively, maybe a gorgeous light filled room with yummy salad mains or small bites for sharing?

Many thanks!
