Worth the Hype (Butter, Nobu, etc.)? And your recommendations!

emac99 | Jan 4, 201506:43 PM

Hello everyone!

I'm from Toronto and will be visiting New York in the last week of February. There are many restaurants I have heard about and I know are famous- but I am wondering if they are worth the hype.

Nobu (I read about Yasuda sushi, so I am leaning more towards that then Nobu)
Balthazar (I was thinking breakfast)
Katz's Deli

Those are just a few.

I'd like to try Momofuku Noodle Bar. We have one here in Toronto but I'd like to see the original. Is Ma Peche worth it for Dim Sum? or do you have more authentic recommendations?

Any recommendations for Pho? Good Korean BBQ? Small cozy Italian?

Some things are hard to know unless you actually live in a city. I also do not want to get roped in by tourists traps. I also don't necessarily need fine dining- just good food!

Thanks in advance!

Nobu Fifty Seven,
Sushi Yasuda,
Balthazar Bakery,
Momofuku Noodle Bar
