How's our NY itinerary?
We get in on a redeye so...
1) head to Katz's deli morning (it's close to our hotel so we can drop off bags).
2) lunch/afternoon snack at John's Pizzeria (I haven't gone in over 10 years but it used to be a favorite)
3) dinner @ shea stadium. no expectations.
4) lunch mid-day at morimoto's
drinks w/ friends.. recommendations for the best tequila selection in the village?
5) dinner late night at lupa. (give us time to digest lunch thoroughly).
We're only here the 2 nights. We'll grab breakfast somewhere before heading out Saturday. Maybe we'll grab lunch (so something between LES and grand central).
Any recs/alterations/suggestions would be appreciated. We currently have the reservations for morimoto and lupa.
For some good tequila (great drinks generally).. a bit off the radar and tiny spot in the village on Sullivan...Florencia 13. The food is pretty good also.
A good itinerary. I'd pick Lombardi's on Spring over John's, though. Yasuda is a truly sublime sushi bar, you can't go wrong going there. Try to go early or about 2:00PM if you don't have reservation. No worries on the dress code, I've been to Yasuda in jeans, sneakers and a polo shirt. As far as Katz's goes, dress code, are you kidding? Just wear a shirt that has less holes than the swiss cheese.
If you can make it to B&H Dairy at St. Marks & 2nd for breakfast on saturday do it. It's a NYC hole in the wall treasure, IMHO. Have the blintzes or LEO.
Thanks everyone for the rec's!
re: John's... that one's nostalgia for me as a displaced east coast gal. BUT I haven't eaten there in over a decade so if the quality's gone down, well, I'm trying to convince my chicago-raised SO that NY thin crust pizza IS better than Chicago thin crust pizza.
and it sounds like you're also voting for yasuda over morimoto's?
