Itinerary is goin along well, and i think 2 spots are still pretty much open -

Extra good Chinese/Cantonese place - Ate in the past in places like grand schezuan branches, great NY noodle, Jink Fong and some other chinatown joints (some were ok, nothing too impressive), for this visit after reading about possible places like imperial palace in Flushing or other options not "center" area, i wonder if "travelling wise" it worth leaving the Manahattan zone to get a much better Chinese expirience. It's gone be anyway one of the midweek days lunch/early dinner and i'm dining solo, but i LOVE extra good food of this cuisine and i think i "have to go" this way. And any good recos for places ? Maybe a Thai option is much better, like sripraphai that i havn't try yet ? Totally different cuisines and styles, i know..

And on the upscale "modern" list of places - i will try to reserve EMP, Kyo Ya, Kajitsu and 15 east (well my prefferences are pretty much evident "-)), i'm thinking of adding a very good modern Italian, a good steakhouse or seafood but not very expensive, or some other interesting cuisine ? Again it is prefferebly lunch or very early dinner - for Italian was thinking about L'Artusi or Babbo but a bit not sure cause already have quite a lot of the "upscale prices" in list, for steakhouse really no idea and not sure i want that direction..

So will be glad to get inputs on those ones, thanks for the help :-)
