Please give feedback or suggest alternatives. It's our anniversary and we are leaving our toddler with the grandparents. We like most cuisines, plan to have one more expensive meal ($200+ for two), and generally like "value" over a scene. Open to most cuisines, but definitely want to include a good Japanese meal. We have reservations so far at the places below.
Arrive 1pm, hotel near Grand Central
Saturday lunch: ?
Saturday dinner: 15 East or Kyo Ya, perhaps a la carte, need to cancel one of the reservations
Sunday brunch: Nomad
Sunday dinner: Public Sunday supper
Monday lunch: Del Posto
Monday dinner: ?
Will there be a wait at Ssam bar around 1:30 or 2 on Saturday, or for Monday night? If Ssam Bar is Saturday lunch, we get another dinner on Monday...
We will see a show either Sunday afternoon or Monday night, could try to grab a drink and snack at Sake Bar Hagi. Or maybe stop by Ippudo Westside late Monday night to squeeze in one last bite before leaving Tuesday morning.
I also need recommendations for cool bars for after dinner. Do you need reservations or are there long waits at places like Pegu Club, PDT, etc?
