Restaurant Suggestions & Night out Plans
We are desperate need of some great/trendy restaurants suggestions. There are a few of us heading to NYC for July 4th. We are looking for a very nice restaurant that is trendy and has great food. We are all married and in our late 20's early 30's. After dinner we are looking to head to a NYC hotspot!
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Consider Bernardin (seafood), Jean Georges(french with asian flavour), Per se(californian,vegetarian), Robuchon (french with a japanese twist) for special occasion French
Babbo for special occasion italian
Craftsteak for steakhouse
Veritas for the wine list
Consider Masugen (soba/sushi), Soto (sushi,cooked dishes), Yasuda (sushi,cooked dishes) for special occasion Japanese
Ililli (5th and 29th) for upscale libanese
Most of these places are hard to get in especially Per se, Babbo. Make reservation as soon as possible.
Regarding NYC hotspot, try 230 5th av (rooftop bar) at 27th st. If you can not get in, consider Rare View ,303 lex av at 37th or High bar 251W 48th
For club, go to AZZA on 55th st and lex.
These places are trendy among foodies. They are not "scenes" where people go to show off with a hot woman. I'm not going to put on the list all the night club/restaurant in the meatpack such as Buddha bar or expensive steakhouse
such as Kobe club. There may be trendy by some standards but you do not eat that well with respect to the money you spend there.
barbuto is a recent summer favorite of mine...food is great...nice crowd...decent prices and on a nice summer night, with their doors open, its a great spot.
kingswood is another place that is lively with surprisingly good food. a bit more expensive and VERY LOUD but fun and a scene.
cookshop in chelsea is great for yr needs as well...solid food, great for drinks...chelsea location but very west near the water.
