It was part of of his desert. Served in a little smooth cone. I liked it, but was glad I got the chocolate since I love chocolate.
I thought I would provide an update on our two nights in NYC. Thank you all for your recs. We are tourists from Canada so some of our choices were the choices of tourists and not foodies. That said, we really enjoyed all our meals.
Supper - we stuck with Victor's Cafe. I was looking for something close to Radio City Music Hall that wouldn't take too long on a Sunday. (Going to convert at 7PM) The menu appealed to me and it fit my needs.
I had the Balthazar salad and a lobster bisque that they had on that day. It was very good but I think I prefer a more relaxed ambience. (So crowded and tables so close together)
We went to Little Italy at suppertime. I know no one enjoys the food there either but we wanted to check out the neighbourhood., ( We had planned to see it in the afternoon after union square and soho but the rain changed our plans and we had spend the afternoon in macy's instead!)
Last day - bfast Zabars - It was funny seeing that nova scotia salmon is such a big thing there. We are from new brunswick (next to nova scotia) so that is the salmon we always eat. The bagel was good. The orange juice was even better. I mostly enjoyed going around their market and wishing I could bring the food on the plane with me. I did bring home so chimichurry sauce that I cooked with last night. Yum!
Lunch - for our last lunch - we ate at Jean Georges. I would give it the full 5 stars. The amuse bouches were interesting. Wine - I had a rose and he had some red. I forget what kinds. First couse - I had the goat cheese gnocchi (awesome) and husband had tuna ribbon. IT was very good as well He had the steak and I had the snapper. Both good but I really loved my snapper. And I had the chocolate desert (with a fantastic Riesling) and he had the market desert. The tomato 'ice cream" was neat to try.
I was a little nervous that it would be snootty and I wouldn't feel comfortable. It wasn't like that at all. Our waitress was excellent and professional.
Then off to the airport.
Thanks chowhounds - I enjoyed reading on these boards before my trip to help me know where to eat!
86th street - how long a walk would that be to 60th....I am guessing probably too far.
I will probably just "wing" that breakfast as I don't need anything fancy. Breakfast isn't my favorite meal of the day so I will try to save there....
Easy walking distance. that is the area we will be wandering that morning. I was hoping to check out the lobbies of these hotels while I wait for the stores to open.
I would be happy with a deli style place for breakfast. Like at least under $30 for breakfast for both of us.
Thanks for all the suggestions - especially breakfasts as I have little ideas there.
I know Serendipity is a trap - i Just liked the movie...
I am suprised about Victor's as I thought the menu looked good.
My first b-fast - the one that was going to be Sabareth's - I am looking for something close to Ritz or Plaza but not too $$$.
We are spending 2 nights in NYC for our 10th anniversary at the end of Sept. Since we will be leaving our 3 year old behind - we are looking forward to eating out. I have created a food itinerary. I tried to balance it $$$wise (you'll note that our more expensive restaurants are being visited for lunch)
We enjoy a variety when it comes to food - my husband wants to try indian. I wanted to to EMP and JG.
The restaurants are not firm yet but I did base them on what neighbourhoods we would be in at those times. For example - the first night we have a concert at RCMH so I needed something close to that.
Head to airport
Is there anyhting here that seems like a bad idea?
Also - do people reserve for Breakfasts?
Thanks - we are excited ! I am nearing the 30 day mark so I need to decide so that I can make my ressies.
