Coming from Philly - Need Recommendations

  • d

Hello all, I will be traveling from my hometown of Philadelphia to NYC with my wife and I wanted to treat her to a fine meal. We are used to eating at finer restaurants here in Philly but I have never dined in NYC.

I am open to all suggestions. We tend to like cozier little ethnic BYO places as opposed to big and glitzy places but there's a time and place for everything. I have heard mixed reviews of Babbo, one of the places I was considering. My wife is 1/2 Cuban, we love Latino food and know that there are many up your way (it's finally catching on here in Philly too). So, this native Philly boy bows to you NYC foodies for help. Thanks! David
