the last berandin or babbo..different ..I know!

We plan on seeing "Jersey Boys" with dinner at Becco or night- Eleven Madison Park and question of the day La Bernadin or Babbo...I know it is totally opposite but we love all types of cuisine and would like your opinion!

    1. Within your choice, other than Babbo, every one has a similar cuisine wherever you may be from. This Italian restaurant's cuisine style is not easy to find ... unless you are in Italy.

      1. I love both Babbo and Le Bernardin on different things: Babbo for their pasta, adn Le Bernardin for the seafood. Since you are going to EMP which means excellent French fine dining the night before, I will pick Babbo over Le Bernardin as you can try something different in terms of type of cuisine and atmosphere. It is likely that you will be getting a few seafood dishes prepared in contemporary French way at EMP anyway, so going for Italian and have some pasta and meaty dishes will be a great way to "diversify" your culinary experience within these few days.

        Either way, I am sure you will have a wonderful meal! Enjoy!

        1. re: kobetobiko

          i endorse kobetobiko's comments. an over-the-top recommendation is to consider dumping emp so you can slot both babbo and le bernardin.

        2. I agree with the last post that you might want to hit Babbo since you'll be having french the night before, but I also must say that my last meal at Le Bernadin (a chef's tasting) was by far the greatest eating experience of my life to date. Without a doubt. Either way, you are in excellent hands!

          1. As someone who has eaten at both Le Bernardin and Babbo in the last week, I would vote for Babbo. Though you really can't go wrong either way, both meals were great.
