Get a swipe at my dining itinerary for August
Hey all, essentially my first time in NY this fall. I am meeting up with my mom, staying in Midtown, and going to a few plays. I cook for a living, so I am looking for experience, fun, and seeing the essentials of the city.
We are going to:
I am also interested in Momofuko, pizza, and a great place for drinks.
Thanks in advance for any recs!
For pizza, I think Grimaldi's is the best and it's a great experience for a "first timer." Note that it is in Brooklyn.
I would say that if you are willing to go to brooklyn for pizza, the best you could do in all the boroughs is di fara's, but if you don't want to leave manhattan then I would recommend John's on Bleecker.
Not on the pizza side, but for what I think is an under publicized restaurant with genuinely distinct and good food/atmosphere is Telepan on the UWS not far from Lincoln Center. I usually like what Chef Telepan brings to the table and they have the since most original and delicious take on carrot cake I have ever seen, highly recommended
I went to Perilla last night and it was awesome. I had the skate wing and it was honestly the most delicious thing ever. Honestly, Perilla is a MUST!!
