Anniversary Trip to NYC - Please comment on itinerary

Yasuda is great. Del Posto is maybe the best meal I ever had. Gray's let me down, as did all the hot dogs in NYC, but I'm a southern boy. Union Square Cafe is great, and for pizza you could throw in a granny slice at Bleeker St. Sunday at Red Hook park for latin street food.

Ok, I may just have to give this place a try! Thanks for all of the replies. I also noticed it is restaurant month, and the choices are way better than what we have in Raleigh.

I think you guys have got me with Metrovino over Wildwood.

nkeane - So far, my best pizza is Grimaldi's in Brooklyn. Apizza looks good too. What are your others in the top 3?

Dinner in Portland

Definitely local ingredients. I had looked at Castanga, but it seems more interesting this time. Interested in alcohol as well, but I would sacrifice for good food. Monday shouldn't be an issue. Seems that fish would be good to go for. I am checking out these other options, and they sound good as well. If I can only get one, which would you suggest? I am not limiting myself to the original list by any means.
