Recommendations for NY Trip?
My boyfriend and I go to NY on MLK weekend and try to hit a lot of great restaurants. We ended up going for a trip in December and hit all our old favorites then, so now I am in search of new favorites.
We love Enoteca Barbone for it's reasonable prices and great food. Is there something equivalent out there? I think cacio e pepe has some supporters and some haters, but what's another great mid-priced Italian restaurant? Just to help describe this a bit more, we usually go to Lupa too.
We are also looking for another Modern American restaurant, also pretty mid-priced, though we might be willing to spend more with a stunning review. We went to Vino Vino and Landmarc last time and would like to try something
I'm also looking for a great lunch recommendation in Soho. We will be doing some shopping there and looking for some place great to stop for refueling.
We're staying in mid-town, but willing to travel around Manhattan to follow a good lead.
I hope this is enough info and thanks in advance for all the great Chowhound recommendations I am sure to get.
for italian, i think da andrea just absolutely rules...always crowded, always delicious...not mid-priced though...the food is amazing yet relatively inexpensive considering the quality. otherwise, gradisca is a more expensive but just a cut below da andrea.
modern american? lots of new places have been doing great these days. i like allen and delancey loads...the food is great there...same with smith's on macdougal street, and market table...you may also want to try yr luck with little owl. i had a recent dinner there for the first time in a few months and the place is still at the top of its game.
lunch in soho? id go across houston to 'ino...tiny nook with great italian meats, cheeses and wine.
