I will be in NYC for St. Patrick's Day celebrations and my local friends have recommended the following list of places that we will try to hit.
City Hall 131 Duane St.
Bubby's 120 Hudson
Balthazar 80 Spring St. for Sat. brunch
Dervish (Turkish) on 47th
Island on Madison for Sun. brunch
Being a long time reader of this board, I am familiar with many of the standard recs., but have not heard of any of these so would interested to hear opinions on these. I have already gone onto menupages.com to get the basics there. Suffice it to say cuisine and price at all these places are acceptable, I'm looking for the unbiased expert opinions on what is offered at each place.
