Your 10 favorite Manhattan restaurants?
Kinda bored and was just thinking about this one.... Everyone post their 5 favorite restaurants in Manhattan only. My favorite restaurant of all time is and only will be Peter Luger but I am not listing them because they are in Brooklyn. Even though if you told me I was dying tomorrow that is where my last meal would be if I had to pick. There are no rules they can be all high end, cheaps eats, or a combination! Just list your faves.... Here are mine so far.... in no partifular order..
1. Keens, 2. Strip House, 3. Craft, 4. Old Homestead, 5. Eleven Madison Park, 6. BLT Prime, 7. Gotham Bar and Grill, 8. Del Frisco's, 9. Smith and Wollensky, 10. Babbo.
3. Laboratorio del Gelato (if they had the flavors I wanted)
4. Itzocan Cafe
7. Upi Jaya
9. Eleven Madison Park
10. Sushi Yasuda
bored at home on fri nite so what the hell... in no particular order:
fatty crab (uws)
In no particular order
Momofuko-all of them including dessert bar
Carnines-both of them
very tricky question - and if i answered at some other time it might be a different list. (how do you weigh the places you love that you go to often against those you've been to once or twice?)
in as i think of it order:
rhong tiam/land northeast thai (i'm cheating my count,here - depends on the 'hood i'm in)
ippudo/naruto ramen (the former is great, the latter i go to all the time)
