Blue Hill Gift Certificate

Blue Hill Gift certificates are not transferable or redeemable for cash.

Whoever gave it to you probably knew that you and your husband aren't foodies and therefore chose a farm-to-table restaurant. I'd recommend just going with gratitude and an open mind and ordering the simplest items on the menu.

best fine dining in New York?

While I like EMP I would not consider it the best restaurant in New York. The S. Pellegrino rankings should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism. For me Per Se was a more memorable experience than either Alinea or EMP.

Best desserts in NYC

Del Posto has the best desserts among the Michelin 3 star restaurants. I also like the desserts at the Modern bar room, Benoit and Lincoln.

Tough-to-get-into-at-night restaurants that are easier during lunch time

Red Farm downtown is only open for lunch on weekends though Red Farm UWS is open for lunch daily. Otherwise, good list.

I've been to YBP three or four times and enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. Though I haven't been there in a year I think it's worth a try.

You might want to try the roasted pork chop at Ma Peche. It's even better than the fried chicken.

Jeepney - longga dog

Hakkasan - XO scallop dumpling

Momofuku Ssam Bar - fried duck dumplings

Blue Ribbon Bakery - bone marrow with bacon bread & onion marmalade

Cafe Hong Kong - salt & pepper squid

Atlantic Grill - warm brussels sprouts caesar salad

Applewood (Brooklyn) - seared scallops with caramelized apple & bacon

Olea (Brooklyn) - Spanish pizza with manchego cheese, quince paste, & toasted garlic

First trip to NYC: Arrive Christmas evening, 4 days

You'll be fine with nice jeans/nice sweaters at all these places. Marea is normally a bit dressier but you'll find lots of jeans at brunch.
