Visiting NYC on Feb 14, 2008
Was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me. I will be visiting NYC on the 14th of February to go to a taping of the Rachael Ray show. It tapes on west 44th street and I need to be there at 2pm. I should be around the area about 8am and was looking for a great place for breakfast or early lunch (prix fix?) I am taking my mom and it is her first time in the city and neither of us have a clue. To complicate things - I'm a vegetarian. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to stay within walking distance to the Rachael Ray show - so we don't miss it. If I can offer any more info that would help - let me know.
Thanks, jcreamer from niagara
oh ya - price isn't much of an issue - since it'll be our only splurge. (i was thinking $50-100pp)
dbBistro Moderne is 4-star chef Daniel Boulud's take on contemporary French bistro cuisine. Needless to say, the food's excellent. You may already have discovered that they serve breakfast as well as lunch.
Marseille, on the corner of 9th Av. & 44thSt., is an attractive, bustling brasserie with very good French/Mediterranean cuisine. The lunch menu includes some good vegetarian-friendly choices. They start serving at 11:30 a.m.
If you want to have breakfast or lunch in a really glitzy dining room, the place to do so is at Town, on 56th St., b/t 5th & 6th Avs. You can see the drop-dead gorgeous space as well as menus on their website. Note: In addition to the a la carte mentu, there is a 3-course lunch prix-fixe for $26, but it's very limited, so it may not include vegetarian-friendly options.
Enjoy the show and Bon Appetit!
Take a look at Riingo-with some sides, it may meet your needs-they are open for breakfast and dinner-
Triomphe does have an omelet for lunch, and if you let them know ahead they might cook up some pasta with vegetables...
You should look into reserving something soon, if you take these choices.
Unless you eat fish, I don't think you'll find enough to eat at db Bistro.
