First trip to NYC: Arrive Christmas evening, 4 days

leslieolsonhpo | Nov 27, 201309:23 AM

My girlfriend and I are visiting New York City for the first time this Christmas, and would love to experience New York as if we were visiting a native New Yorker foodie friend. Except we aren’t. We know no one. While I know you all get these “4-days in New York” requests all the time, I’ll try to make mine more specific, and possibly more interesting.
Things to know:
We arrive (JFK) at 5:30pm Christmas day. Plan on taking a taxi to our hotel. (King & Grove) We are looking for dinner on Christmas.
She is a vegetarian (eats fish and dairy); I am an omnivore.
We love good coffee and would love to find a great place near the hotel.
We are willing to travel anywhere in Manhattan for great food.
We are from south east Florida (if you’re looking for context.)

Looking for:
a splurge celebratory dinner (either on Christmas evening, or not;)
great Indian (I understand our neighborhood may also be known as “Curry Hill?”)
great iconic New York food: pizza, street food, bagels, etc;
a high end restaurant that we might be able to afford if we eat there at lunch;
the best/latest ethnic restaurants of any variety;
fabulous dessert
