Another Manhattan Xmas Trip - advice please !

We had such a fab xmas trip last year that we decided to go again this year !
Last year i ate at :

For dinner

River Cafe
Old Homestead
Carmelites or something for pizza

For lunch

Max Brenner chocolate place
PJ Harveys hamburgers

Some advice on whether these are still worth going to would be welcome . We are going for 6 nights and cant wait and are happy to pay the similar budgets .

We are also considering Buddakan and Stks as substitutes . Any view on this ?

Many thanks you big foodie apples

  1. Do you want an exact repeat of your previous trip or more new recommendations?

    For MOMA you mean the Modern (next to MOMA)?

    Stay away from Max Brenner.

    For PJ Harveys hamburgers, you mean PJ Clarke's?

      Firstly i would like to know if the places i visited last time are still of the same quality and second i am interested in new recommendations . I only have 6 nights and so need 6 restaurants to dine at !
      We had lunch in MOMA in the cafe place which was enjoyable .
      We enjoyed Max Brenner on the lower east side possibly . Is it no good anymore ?
      I meant PJ Clarkes ! Are there others that are better
      Many thanks
