I've been to NY once, with my mom, and it was an eye opening trip...I cannot believe I turned her down for a 16th birthday trip way back when!
Anyhow, we had a blast, saw so much and now it's time for me and my husband. He is a sommelier in Napa Valley and has never been to NY. This is his treat and I'd like for him to eat and drink as much as possible, and to enjoy it! We are staying in Midtown, and are willing to go anywhere for a wonderful experience. We arrive in June on my birthday, and while I loved Babbo, I'd like to have a phenomenal meal that night somewhere else. We aren't talking $$$$$, but know that I love seasonal, organic food...and I have an Italian palette for a Jewish girl. I know we are going to hit Momofuku, and H & H for bagels, but that's about it at this point...excited to map out a few very intense and fun days.
So, my questions and favors for you are:
1. A great birthday dinner, romantic, delicious, and a great time (knowing Babbo was right up my alley).
2. Good food finds for lunch and dinner for 2 more days/nights, any kind of experience.
3. Specialty shops we have to go to (Murray's, etc).
Any info is very welcome..we will go to Brooklyn if that's where the best pizza or Italian or anything is, too.
Thanks in Advance..I try my best to help folks out with wine country info and am hoping for some great suggestions from you all!
