First Timers from Orange County, CA

ocfrugalfoodie | Mar 10, 201403:52 PM

My husband and I are going to be in NYC for 7 days (6 nights) and are completely overwhelmed with the options. We are avid foodies, some of our faves are Pizzeria Mozza and Bouchon.

We do not want to go anywhere that is on the west coast (including Vegas) so no Scarpetta.

We want to have at least two fabulous dinners ($400, tip, wine tax inclusive) but mainly as first timers want to have experiences we that are quintessential NY.

On my list is Balthazar and Eleven Madison Park AND Le Bernadin (lunch)

So what's not to be missed for first timers to NYC?
