Lunch this week?
Hoping for some guidance from locals on lunch for when we are NYC on Thur/Fri this week...I have 5 spots in mind...and only 2 days.
We are having large meals in the evening...Bernadin/WD50/EMP...so while we would like good food during the day...more casual and not causing us to OD on good food is necessary.
Also...looks pretty warm...although trending from 90 to the low 80's...so debating shorts versus pants. I'll wear slacks if need be...
We do not have any firm daytime plans...open to wandering the streets, looking through stores, museums...since we will not have our two kids with us.
So...thinking of Babbo...Colicchio & Sons...Spotted Pig...The Modern...and Eataly.
Had considered Babbo for dinner...so really leaning toward a lunch there.
MoMA might be great to check out too so The Modern would work...although we can simply eat elsewhere and visit the museum.
Eataly perhaps more suited to browsing and a drink?
Any input appreciated...
Lunch at Babbo sounds great. Spotted Pig for lunch is good, too.
How about Minetta Tavern? Very New York-y.
Did you mean the Bar Room at the Modern? Or the formal dining room at the Modern?
Eataly is fun but it's more of a shopping mall that happens to have restaurants inside of it, and you can bring a glass of wine with you as you shop. But the layout is rather confusing, the signage poor, the aisles narrow, and there are big crowd control issues.
Personally if I were doing Le Bernardin, WD-50, and EMP, I'd mix it up with Babbo and an Asian restaurant for lunch. Momofuku Ssam Bar, 15 East, Mission Chinese, etc.
