Okay, finally getting to NY after 15 years in Montana.
Going to do a major Batali immersion: 2 nights Babbo, late dinner at Casa Mono, lunch at Otto, maybe dinner at Lupa.
Planning on lunches at Grand Sichuan 9th Ave. and Gramercy Tavern (bar), late afternoon snacks at Pearl Oyster Bar, Pho Bang, Minka.
This still leaves some meals open. A friend wants to take us to wd-50, but the menu's a little strange, frankly.
Heading to Paris after, so no French/bistro.
Thinking perhaps having her take us to Honmura An or Omen and really ordering alot.
What do the natives have to say?
