ex "new yorkers" need recommendations for "new" restaurant to try

  • 6

a group of ex "new yorkers" (including myself) are returning for a weekend in May, and we are looking for suggestions on where we should try to get a table for a Friday Night.

we are looking for a fun / trendy, newish, restaurant, with fabulous food

any suggestions?

thanks in advance!

  1. Your request is way too vague. You need to narrow things down- what kind of food do you like, price range (give speciific amounts) neighborhood, how many in your group. The more detail you give, the more useable responses you'll get.

      yes you are right - its very vague, hope the following helps

      group of 6
      like all foods
      budget is high (but not per se high!)
      all neighbourhoods

      previous favourites:
      blue hill - stone barns and the city
      gramercy tavern
      the modern
      craftbar
      gotham bar and grill
      spice market
      stanton social
      buddakan
      raoul's
      telepan
      dovetail

    2. It would also help if you tell us what places you liked when you lived here.

      1. Maiaolino, Locanda Verde, The Breslin (but no reservations and long wait), Pulino's is the new McNally place, and Mad about Chicken is fun for groups - part of the new Korean fried chicken craze in the 30s. Have fun

          The Breslin does take reservations for their whole suckling pig meal, IIRC.
