Rec's for NYC weekend

nicob | Oct 24, 2007 12:48 PM

Hello all....

My boyfriend and I are meeting in NYC next weekend for some time away from his two week business trip.

We will be arriving in the afternoon on Friday and will do some walking around and shopping in Soho (we are staying at the Soho Grand, by the way). Friday night we have reservations at Stanton Social at 10:30. I would like to get wine/drinks and maybe an app before dinner and then wander our way to the LES. I was thinking possibly Public would fit the bill??? I could also use suggestions for after dinner. We like trendy, fun places that aren't too much of a scene.

Saturday we are going to be doing some walking around in Central Park, and the Village. My boyfriend wanted to get some good pizza, so we may either go to John's on Bleecker or walk across the Bridge to Grimaldi's.

Saturday night we are going to catch a Rangers hockey game (my b/f is originally from NY). I would like to get some pre-game drinks (suggestions?? not necessarily near MSG). And then we plan on doing dinner after the game, which should end around 9:30 - 10:00. Please critique the following restaurants I had in mind....

The Spotted Pig
Blue Ribbon

Any other suggestions or help would be great, (no asian food, please).
