Hi fellow foodies. We are coming to NYC for 18 days and nights of good eating for our 20th anniversary. Definitely staying in Tribeca for 9 nights and either Upper East Side or Noho for the other 9. My questions are:
- Is the Upper East Side ok as an area food wise - we love mixing it up with casual and fine dinning (see below) and if so what recommendations?
- We love the likes of Flour and Water and also Commonwealth in San Francisco. We would like to mix up our food and flavours and challenge our pallets as well try some old goodies. What recommendations in Tribeca, NoHo (and also Upper East Side if you consider it worthy)?
We are looking thinking about:
- Locanda Verde
- Marc Forgione
- Blue Ribbon
- Per Se
We want to mix up fine dining, southern (we don't get that in NZ), both high and lower end Mexican, possibly Cuban, Italian (in the style of the great Italian food movies)...
A few questions (sorry). When they say jacket in a restaurant is a tie required? Which are the best foodie farmers markets? Are there any exceptional high teas in NYC and if so then where AND where are the best places in NYC for weekend brunch?
Thanks for your help - can't wait to visit (and eat). Arriving May 6
