ok so after going through the Frommers guide, the ny.eater.com (their 38 essential for Mar 2010), the Top 50 from NYTimes (http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/03/sam-siftons-50-current-favorite-new-york-restaurants/), the best of 2009 from Citysearch by cuisine (http://newyork.citysearch.com/bestof/...)
...i've come up with this list. would be very grateful for opionions and replies for glaring omissions!
Restaurant - Food
Momofuku Ssam Bar
Pam Real Thai
thanks Blacken! great post.
quite an interesting offer... and entertaining viewing, but i dont think spending a day eating/sampling as much as i can is all that appealing :P
thanks to everyone for you contribution!
hey sam thanks for the list! very good indeed! will definitely use that
oliver - thank you also. yes, as you pointed out, there is just so much information that only a local resident i think, could give you the best picture. the lonely planet guide (2008) was written by 4 co-authors all living in manhattan, so that im sure has to have some credibility. it';s like if someone came to Sydney, i could instantly point them to my fav top 10. but again it's very subjective
ok so i've read through a number of posts and taken in varying tips and people's favourites about where to eat whilst in NY - manhatten.
i guess the problem is that there is just so much information, and particularly when everyone voices their own different opinion. ultimately what you get is hundreds of recommendation to different places. and ultimately for a first timer to NY, im left just as directionless as i was before i started researching.
just wondering if there is a top 20 or so list of places to eat in NY. has one already been created on this website or other websites? I understand everyone has their favourites and hence one person's top 20 might differ from another's. but i guess unanimously, there would be a handful of restaurants/eateries/cafes/..heck even a hot dog cart...that people would agree upon as a must try
my partner and I are arriving in NY from Sydney, Australia, in late july and leaving early August (13days) to be spent solely on absorbing what NY city has to offer. 13 days means around 40 meals! so it'd be great to have some sort of comprehensive foodies list to tick off.
open to trying out everything - from street food to high end restaurants.
