Can't miss restaurants in NYC?

Dr. Confoundo | Feb 28, 2007 09:49 AM

The wife and I are finally going to be taking that trip to New York City that I've been wanting to do for years. We've got flightplans, hotel reservations, a theatre ticket or two... I'm even thinking of buying tickets on one of those tour-bus dealies, so on the first day we're there we can get a basic rundown of what the city has to offer, and then head back to any of those places which looked interesting.

The one thing I don't have is restaurant suggestions. There are a million places to eat in the Naked City, I need to you to recommend a few of them.

What I need are a wide range of ideas, but they must follow a theme: If you had to leave New York forever, and only had time to go to one more restaurant, what would it be? It could be that dazzlingly expensive place that embodies everything New York cuisine stands for; it could be that greasy spoon on the corner that makes the best corned beef hash known to man. (I'd love to get a meal at one of the famous NYC eateries, like the Tavern on the Green or the Russian Tea Room, but I'm sure that they are all hype, and not worth the bother.)

Additionally, what's a good place to eat before a Broadway show? What's the usual way to do it - dinner before the show, or a really late dinner afterwards?

Thanks for your input!
