Things that aren't available in VT

Chowhounders who have moved to VT are looking for a funtime in NYC on Monday and Tuesday.
My list would be Di Paulo's, Eataly, something new and interesting in the chinatown area, Mary's or Pearl's Oyster Bar...just trying to find things that we don't readily have available in VT.
What do you think?
We're not looking replicate EMP or Le Bernardin

  1. You might think about tinkering with the title of your post, nancy, to draw a better crowd. Giving a working budget might help, too.

    1. A far as Chinatown I would imagine you do not have any foods from Henan or Xian in VT.

      Here's a Chinatown start:

      1. Only in NY type foods that you may be missing: bagels and smoked salmon, pastrami on rye, hot dogs & papaya juice, black and white cookies, cheesecake, egg creams, pickles, halal carts. My friend who lives in VT especially loves black and white cookies and always requests that NYer bring her some when they visit.

        scoopG's Chinatown list above is good, too.

        You might also want to consider creative Asian, like at Momofuku Ssam Bar, Wong, Fatty Cue, Takashi, RedFarm. More expensive than Chinatown but not near the level of EMP or Le Bernardin.

        Here is a list of my favorites:

        My favorite unique places in NY serve Xian (Chinese) food, Issan (Thai) food, organic/local/sustainable Japanese BBQ, authentic Basque (Spanish) tapas, creative diner food, pretzels, hot dogs, halal food, steak, upscale rustic Italian, Italian subs, creative Italian-American, high end non-sushi Japanese (like kaiseki), creative desserts, molecular gastronomy, mixology/creative cocktails, and upscale brunches.

        In addition to Pearl, I might look into Pies 'n' Thighs, the Redhead, Blue Smoke, Hill Country, Luke's Lobster....
