  1. Bring Tums.

    Where's your pizza? Pastrami? Bagel?

    Sub MCFNY for xian famous.

    Dinosaur isn't necessary.

    Not need to eat at both DBGB and Cafe Boulud - I'd prefer Boulud Sud over either one of those. And for that matter, I prefer Cafe Katja over DBGB.

      You really prefer Boulud Sud over Cafe (not Bar) Boulud?

      1. re: Sneakeater

        Yeah, but only because it's more in the style of how I like to eat. Which is, not on the upper east side.

    2. When are you coming? Do you already have you reservations in order? One of your choices only does weekday lunch (EMP).

      Where are you traveling from?

      I'd drop Lombardi's and burger joint.

      Sorella has a new chef. Not sure how it is these days.

      It's Locanda Verde BTW.

      Clinton St is also a sit down restaurant BTW. I noticed you listed it with some places that are takeout/counter service.

      Keep Babbo.

      1. Sorry, I passed right over Lombardi's. For pizza, try Motorino (good lunch special on weekdays) or Keste. Or Arturo's.

        1. Keep Babbo. Drop Shake Shack and DBGB.

            Agree with dropping Shake Shake (I've never been to Burger Joint, mentioned above). If you want a great burger go to BLT Burger.

          2. you might want to add blue ribbon bakery in, it seems to fit with your concept...also Acme
