I am traveling to New York early May with my wife and have finally decided on where to have our lunches and dinners. Both of us have been to New York several times in the past and have decided this time only to visit restaurants we haven't been to before and this is the list of restaurants we have chosen for this trip:
Ma Peche (dinner)
Momofuku Ko (lunch)
Empellon Cocina (dinner)
Momofuku Ssäm (Saturday brunch)
Le Benardin (lunch)
Minetta Tavern (dinner)
Momofuku Noodle Bar (Saturday lunch)
Also, some friends are taking us out one evening and I'm not certain where they will take us, but they did mention Brushstroke so please include this restaurant as well.
I have made reservations in all places, except where they only take walk ins. I would appreciate if you could give me some ideas on what dishes that shouldn't be missed in these places. For Marea I know that I will definitely have the Fusilli with bone marrow and octopus and the black label burger at Minetta Tavern and tasting menus at Ko and Annisa.
