Quintessential Dining Spots for a First-Timer in Manhattan

kwool2004 | Apr 3, 201402:12 PM     20

Hi-

I am a chef at a restaurant in Los Angeles, and I will be going to NYC for a few weeks to visit a few friends and would like to experience a broad cross section of all NYC has to offer! My other friends are also in the restaurant industry but we are not necessarily interested in hitting the typical spots (per se, jean georges, etc), we personally go for the more hidden local gems.

All price points are welcome, but probably no higher than $100 per person check average. That said, we love going into hole in the wall places that cost $10 per person as well. All styles of cuisine are welcome also.

We will be staying at the Plaza Hotel but we would also like to visit Brooklyn, etc so would appreciate any suggestions outside of our immediate vicinity as well.

Thanks so much for your help, this is a very intimidating search so I appreciate any recs!
