Visiting NYC for two days! New eating plan?

meaggiej | Dec 31, 201509:35 AM

Basically, last time we hit NYC, you guys were amazingly helpful in helping me map out my eating plan. We're going back. The trip is shorter and if you hadn't mapped it out for me last time, we would have missed A LOT. I'm looking for more recommendations and places to try and the best way to hit them all in the most time efficient manner.

Quick List of things we tried and liked/did not like last time:

Lukes Lobster: bf enjoyed
Papaya King: average
Little Italy Pizza: average
Bonchon chicken: amazing.
Halhal: average. a little bland.
Shake shack: bf's favorite burger ever.
Little Red Hens: average
Coffee Bean & Tea leaf: good stuff.
O Merveileux: good good stuff.
Red Hook Lobster: bf LOVED this. hot lobster roll was his hands down fav.
morgensterns ice cream: quality stuff. liked it.
yaya tea garden: got chicken onigiri. average.
joe's ginger: just not good. idk why. this place was packed.
smorgasburg: got wings from dave & ... bf loved them. cheese curds. good. asia dog... bf liked it... dough cafe au lait donut... i liked.
joe's pizza: good.
mamouns: terrible.
grom: good.
bleecker st pizza: good.
cafe bene: i thought it was good but bitter. bf not so much.
21: bf got sushi. liked it.

Places that people said I need to hit this time:

-Taim in west village. (could not find in chinatown area last time!)
-Pearl Oyster Bar
-Goa Taco

Other suggestions really welcome!

Wall St Bull
Staten Island Ferry (maybe. seems time consuming. we skipped last time.)
Empire State or Top of the Rock
Walk the Highline
New York Public Library
Grand Central
