A short stay....food help please
I will be traveling to New York in late October, arriving on a Sunday around 1pm. I will stay in the city until about 7pm when I will need to make my way to Armonk, heading back out of town on Tuesday evening. I would love to have a light snack in the city on arrival and then a nice dinner. I would also like to find a bakery to take away a midnight snack and breakfast for Monday morning. I have some shopping to do in SOHO, so something thereabout would be great, but I would consider places as well. I will need to have dinner in Armonk on Monday, so I am open to suggestions there as well. Here is my layout for food:
Take away pastries for midnight snack/Monday breakfast:??
Breakfast: eat take way from the city
Dinner: Fig & Olive (in Westchester)?
Dinner on the go:??
With regards to snacks and dinner on Sunday, I am a huge fan of French Food. I like most other foods as well though so all suggestions are welcome. For breakfast I usually look for more sweet than salty. With regards to price range, for dinner I would like to stay under $100. Thank you for your help!
For Sunday light lunch, if you decide you don't want the amazing jamon from Despana. Perhaps you won't be in a meat mood. Ed's lobster bar is nearby, for a really good lobster roll. Ceci Cela is also nearby for some pastries, their Financiers are excellent. If you're in Grand Central and want a quick bite, Toon's has a Thai restaurant in their and the food is good quality.
Sunday lunch: perhaps a light snack at Despana, some jamon iberico
Sunday takeaway pastries: Dominique Ansel, in Soho, just get there before 6pm (closing time)
Sunday dinner: What time is your train from Grand Central? You will need to eat fairly early, I think, then try to catch a 6:48pm Metro North train. You may be too rushed for a "nice dinner."
Will need more details about Tuesday's "dinner on the go" in to make a recommendation -- are you flying? Taking a train? Coming in from Armonk, through Manhattan, and then headed where? LGA, JFK, EWR? Penn Station?
For the rest of your itinerary, in Armonk, you will need to post on the New York State board.
thanks Kathryn! Jamon iberico sounds perfect and Dominique Ansel looks amazing! :O)
I will be driving from the city to Armonk, so technically I can leave any time I am ready but thought I would want to leave around 7pm to get there at a decent time. For Tuesday's "dinner on the go", I will be leaving Armonk around 5pm to catch an 8:45pm plane out of LGA.
