TOP "essential" New York Restaurants $ to $$$$

peppermonkey | Feb 17, 200901:43 PM     227

I'm visiting from LA towards the end of March for 5 days and I'm looking some "essential" New York eats. What i mean by essential is a place reflects New York in an unusual way? That showcases New York and it's diversity. Price doesn't matter. From the best street carts to the Masa's and Per Se's. I think we got ya beat in terms of Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai, and Mexican. Places that are rolling around in my head right now are one of the Momofuku's, Peter Lugar, Morimoto, Spotted Pig, wd 50? What's the best French place besides Le bernardin since my GF had a bad lunch there? What's the best Italian place besides babbo since we have osteria mozza here? Best Puerto Rican, Jewish deli, Jamaican? Pizza, hotdogs? I'll eat anything.
