Us in nutshell: Anniversary trip, 1st time to NY for me, early 40s, fly in Thurs April 24th out Sunday - quick trip, packing it in. From South, huge Stitt fan...not so much foam on a spoon kind....not real big into modern/contemporary/stiff/quiet. Like cozy, character, lively vibe. Dont mind sitting at bar.
Land 10am, staying at The Greenwich
Lunch: 1:45 Balthazar, later than I wanted but w/travel hard to tell
Private tour all day, lunch on tour - was going to let tour guide suggest
Dinner - Between The NoMad, Blue Hill and Lavagna. Leaning on NoMad - Blue Hill, read a lot about, wanted to see where Jennifer Anniston got enagaged (ya ya I know) but just cant get excited about it for some reason, may pop in for a drink. Lavagna - was recommended by you guys.
Lunch - cant decide, considered JG or Bouley, but think may need more casual. Want to go see and do, and dont think want to see and do all dressed up. So need some more casual ideas.
Dinner - allover map again, have Cafe Boulud, Il Buco and Lavagna (if I dont do it Friday)
Really want Perla, but cant book outside 2 weeks - is that an impossible reservation to get?
I know all will be good meals, just wanted to get the expert's opinions. Thanks for any input!
