Leaving on Sunday: How does this Look?
We are leaving on Sunday for a week long trip to NYC.
Here is what I have planned so far.
Mon: The NoMad
Tues: Breakfast: Maialino
Dinner: Plan on going to Txixito (can't make reservation)
Wed: Oceana before show
Thurs: Lunch: Manzo
Sat: Brunch-Locanda Verde
Sun: Brunch: Minetta Tavern
I don't have breakfast or lunch planned for every day because I want it to be more leisurely and I don't want to be tied down every day. I do have a large list of places in each neighborhood so I think we are going to work off of that.
Thursday dinner is the only night that I just couldn't find something for. I would really like to do something more Asian influenced since I am missing that. My other traveler is not a big fan of Thai or Japanese, but does like Chinese. I was thinking of Red Farm but I cannot make reservations there either. Thoughts??
Also we are staying at The Standard in the Meatpacking District. I do have a list of places to eat breakfast in that area, but does anyone have a favorite cafe etc. for breakfast? Doesn't have to be over the top, just good solid breakfast food.
Thanks! I will definitely be reporting back on all of these.
Manzo is great. Do you have a reservation? How many are in your party? If it is just 2, I recommend eating at the bar. The bar staff is wonderful and we always eat at the bar. I have been to Manzo a number of times and have never sat at a table, come to think of it!
And just to let you know, Eataly has recently opened a lunch only restaurant, Pranzo. We have not been, but the concept is interesting; they focus on a different region in Italy each month. This month is Sicily and the menu looks mighty tasty. Here is a link: http://eatalyny.com/eat/pranzo
