Thank you all for the great feedback! I was mixed up on the location of Balthazar so I will definitely switch Amalia and it for the dinner the night we catch a Broadway show. I loved the feedback on EMP and have checked it out online, but it seems most of their dishes are seafood...is this wrong? I would love to go there, but want to have a few things off the menu to try. I am trying to keep most of the dinners around $250 with drinks except for Daniel (which would be more around $350 or so ?). As far as breakfasts, we were probably going to just grab bagels, coffee wherever along the way. From other posts I hear Ess-a-bagel is the place to check out...thoughts?

My boyfriend and I are visiting NYC for the first time this coming November. After reading through several other threads on the places not to miss in NYC, we have come up with the following list. We are not big seafood fans, but are open to almost anything else. We are only there for a few days so I want to make sure the places we are going will be memorable. We are staying at the Michaelangelo, but are open to other areas as well. As far as price, we want to have one “to-die-for” dinner and then more affordable but delicious dinners the other evenings.

If there are any "not-to-miss" dishes or special requests I would love the inside scoop--thanks in advance for your help!

Wed:
Lunch- Le Bonne Soupe
Dinner- Daniel

Thurs:
Lunch- Jean Georges
Dinner- Babbo

Fri: (Opera @ 8)
Lunch- Gramercy Tavern
Dinner- Insieme

Sat: (Broadway show @ 8)

Thanksgiving dinner in Manhattan

My boyfriend and I are visiting Manhattan for the first time over Thanksgiving. Do any of you have a recommendation on where to dine for Thanksgiving dinner? I am also looking for suggestions for the rest of our trip...what your favorite restaurants are, new, old anything inbetween. :)
Thanks for your help!
