That's exactly what I am looking for! Thankyou so much
And wow that is a long list of recommendations for scarpetta!
Uwsister - I did mean to say traditional English brekkie, some real good options on the menu at Breslin
That sounds delic for brekkie! After your suggestion i was thinking of squeezing in russ & daughters for a snack cuz my gf loves salmon (doubt she'd wanna do it for brekkie though)
Could you recommend anywhere nice for a big breakfast (bacon, egg, mushroom etc)
Do you recommend any standouts at scarpetta?
Thanks for those other suggestions, they sound fun & different experience
Sorry uwsister, I should have been more clear
Eliminating the 4 I already have for brekkie, what else would you choose for our final place?
Re comme ca - would love to know what you would place ahead of this in LA(sorry for discussing in manhattan thread, but only brought up as you mentioned could be better options)..
Pizza - yeh you're right sounds like a good idea, although much of a muchness really we don't mind traveling a couple extra mins
Haha yeh 500 isn't particularly cheap, i made the call by looking at the a la carte.. Which is prob what we do.. Unless u strongly recommend set menu?
GEEZ.. thanks so much guys you replied so quickly!
just to clarify that there is 6 of us. However, we will have some meals on our own & probably be drinking as a party of 4.
BREAKFAST - so i narrowed it down to Locanda Verde, Shopsins, Patisserie Claude, Clinton St (but early in week).. so if you guys had one last breakfast in NYC - where and what would it be?
LUNCHES - got these pretty well locked down - as you said kathryn should have pizza for lunch but dont know how i could swap it in.. 1) Shake Shack (will be going "high end/restaurant" burger if you could call it that at Comme Ca in LA - so thought id opt with this rather than another sit down restaurant burger), 2) EMP, 3) katz pastrami on rye (although you recommend club over rye sam?), 4) Del Posto (purely for the bargain)
1) Pizza (yet to be decided – leaning towards keste or motorino – just because lucali might be a pain to get to, no?)
2) Italian – ahh now I have too many suggestions haha (but thankyou for creating this problem)
3) wd50 - sgordon – thanks for bringing wd50 to my attention it also looks surprisingly cheap. I was always under the impression that wd50 was higher scale of $$. I think it will be a lock in
4) ? (will move Xi’an to a late night meal – rather than a meal for dinner.)
Will be making a much needed trip to the states in sept & will be traveling with my gf, along with my brother & his partner, as well as the old folks.. Will have 5nights/dinners & breakfasts, only 4 lunches
Although we won't be doing everything together (different shopping tastes/destinations and different plans for visiting sites), we all enjoy the same food/restaurants which makes it pretty convenient -
We are prepared to spend $1 to $200 for a meal, as long as it's value for money, the service isn't f*@$ off bad (meaning we are willing to bare AVERAGE service - given the food will be top notch) and we are not spending time on a meal that could/should have been spent elsewhere... So here's where Your help would be greatly appreciated
4) other food
Even if you can only respond to one part, your input is really appreciated
