Need some NYC Advice from Philly Hounds


Hi folks...posting this again because the Chowhound folks insist that this post be on the Manhattan forum..I'm planning my 50th birthday dinner, and want to hear from Philly folks about your favorite NYC restaurants!

If you can help me out please post at this link!

  1. Based on recommendations from friends, I have been thinking about Toloache, 251 W. 50th St., for my next lunch or dinner in NYC. It is Mexican, which may or may not work for you.

    1. re: jfr

      I think Philly Mexican blows NYC Mexican away. There are so many NYC options that Philly doesn[t have--why go to something we do well? If I was going soon, I'd head to one of the Momofukus.

    2. Eleven Madison Park. Hands down.

      I would also second Momofuku.

      1. Le Cirque....amazing food and service....a little expensive, but definitely worth it!

        1. Hi:

          We're locking this "pointer". Please post any other suggestions on the thread to which rocknroll52 links in her post above, so that we can keep Manhattan recommendations on the Manhattan board.
