I will be meeting my husband down to NYC for a pre-Christmas getaway Dec 12-17. We are currently living on opposite sides of the country for work, so I'm VERY excited about the prospect!
My first and only visit to your beautiful city was last December, and we had some amazing eats including EMP, Babbo, Katz's, Shake Shack and Grimaldi's (we don't differentiate, just love good food).
This trip, I have some specific must-try's:
1. I would love to take him for an inventive, delicious tasting menu. I loved the techniques of EMP, but want to try somewhere new. Suggestions?
2. We love a good mocha, or other slightly sweet coffee. Loved Blue Bottle last time I visited. Any other similar or better places?
3. We will be meeting friends for a Saturday morning brunch. Again, looking for unique and delicious. Thoughts?
4. Always on the lookout for a can't-miss bakery item!
We will be staying at the Distrikt Hotel near Times Square and relying on walking/public transit.
Some places I have thought about based on previous CH suggestions include:
Acme ( late dinner)
Di Fara (lunch)
Jean George's (lunch)
Any recommendations on the above, or new suggestions altogether, are more than welcome! Thanks!
