Traveling Solo, need some help!

JBurnsPatersonIV | Feb 20, 2010 02:20 PM

I'll be in Manhattan for the James Beard Awards May 2nd and 3rd, as well as lunch on the 4th. Since i'll be by myself I don't want to do anything such as Adour, Eleven Madison Park, etc. so i'd like to stay within a reasonable budget. I'd love to get some great dim sum and Chinese, brasserie fare, as well as DBGB. This is what I had in mind but i'd love some suggestions!

In no particular order....

Momofuku Ssam
Oriental Garden
Jean George (lunch)
Balthazar or Pastis (both favorites)
Bouchon Bakery (macaroooooons)
Katz Deli (gotta have pastrami...)
Crif Dog/PDT late night
Tailor Bar
Spotted Pig
Papaya King

I love french food, comfort food, and asian cuisine. I frequent NYC but usually its with a group so dining isn't always up to me. I've been to many of the 'big named' restaurant but i'd like to go to places that are more reasonable and fun - especially easy for someone to go by themselves.

All help is appreciated!!
