I used to live in Manhattan until March of 2008. Now I live abroad, but I'll be back in the city for 2.5 weeks next month. What's sprung up in the last year that I should know about? I am making an extensive list of old favorites to go back to, but I don't want to live only in the past :)

      A new favorite is Scarpetta in the meatpacking district. It's definitely something that is worth a try.

      Besides that, what are your old favorites? Just as something to use as a point of reference...

        You need to be more specific about what you are looking for, such as what cuisines you prefer, and whether you want casual or fancy. Also, give us your per person budget for food only (drinks, tax & tip additional).
