some help planning NYC trip November

rekha | Aug 12, 2006 12:47 PM

Hi there. Myself, my partner and best friend are coming to New York in November from Glasgow, Scotland and I need some help to maximise our eating experience. I have been the last two years in a row and obviously love the place and have a list of places I would like to eat but also to incorporate it into what shopping we want to do. I have tried to group things by areas to cut down on time wastage..

So, places I would like to go

Friday night hwen we arrive-Pizza- Johns on Bleecker, coming from the UK I thought the pizza here was great but I know that there rages a debate about the best pizza in New York the contenders being Di Fara, Lombardi's etc but this is convenient for us, however we do hope to head out to Brooklyn..

Saturday-shopping UES
Lunch- Cafe Boulud
Snack-Burger Joint
Dinner- Grand Sichuan International/Momofuku

Sunday-shopping Soho-Help here needed!
Breakfast-Balthazar/Jane/Prune/Mercer Kitchen which to choose?

Lunch?- something light due to proposed dinner
Dinner- Jean Gorges

Breakfast this may not be important due to likelihood of tasting menu night before
Lunch-Le Bernardin
Dinner- this will be prior to going to the airport for nine.

Other places that we intend on going
Katzs for a sandwich
Nickys Vietnamese Sandwiches for a sandwich
would really like some sushi but can't pick between
Sushi of Gari
Seki or Yasuda.. any ideas?

Due to jet lag I was going to keep Jean Gorges for dinner to the last full day ie Monday. Is there any truth to the urban myth about eating on certain days in restaurants or does this not apply to a city like New York?

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
