First trip to NYC

themard | Jun 2, 201509:23 AM

My wife and I are heading to NY for the first time in July. We will be in town from Saturday-Tuesday. We could use some lunch and dinner recommendations. Strongly considered trying to get in at Atera or Ko, but have decided against a fine dining route.

Have done some basic research, but would like your input. Where should we be going for NY style pizza? Di Fara the right place?

As of now we are planning on Gramercy Tavern and Noodle Bar. Should I sit in the dining room at GT or will the bar menu give me a solid enough experience?

Intend to go to Dead Rabbit for drinks at some point, but interested in hearing about other places for drinks.

Would also like you input on Contra and Estela. Both look very solid, but basing mostly on what Eater NY is saying.

Basically we are interested in experience food that we might not be able to get in Chicago. Looking forward to hearing what you suggest. Thanks!

We are staying at The Lex, but willing to take transit or cabs.

Di Fara Pizza,
Gramercy Tavern,
Momofuku Noodle Bar,
The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog,
