Sunday - Belthezar brunch, Shopping department stores, lunch at a food card along the way or Shake Shack, Dinner with friends (Their decision)
Monday - Locanda Verde Breakfast, More shopping, Madison Av, Lunch @ Ippodu, Century 21, Couple Dinner @ Gramercy Tavern
Tuesday - Quick pastry breakfast, MoMA, Bar room @ Modern, Rockerfeller for snacks after, Central Park walk, Broadway shows, Group dinner after show @ Danji
Wednesday - Lower east food tour, Early Group dinner @ Empellon Taqueria, Yankee Game
Thursday - The mercer kitchen breakfast, Brooklyn bridge, park slope, Juliana's Pizza, Stratten Island cruise, Couple dinner @ the Nomad
Friday - Breakfast @ the cupping room, free time before we leave.
Thank you Kathryn for some great suggestions. I have had a look through everything, and added some to the list. In regards to your questions, I believe we would like to keep the majority of our dinners under $150pp, inc tax & tips. Drinks above that is fine. We would probably be happy to splurge on one more expensive meal within reason. Lunches and breakfasts can be quick, easy and cheap.
Jeff, you are absolutely correct. We are adventurous, and would like to particularly try cuisines that we don't see much of around here. However, we'd never say no to a good Italian meal!
I am working on a schedule for the week, and would like to fit the meals within that, based on the area we are exploring. Breakfasts all need to be in or very close to SoHo as that's where our hotel is. Also happy to return back to hotel to freshen up prior to dinners.
Here is a rough schedule as it stands. I am still trying to get the hang of the areas and what's close to what etc, so feel free to correct me if none something doesn't makes sense.
Saturday - MoMa, Lunch?, Central Park for coffee and walk, black to hotel, Dinner
Sunday - Real New York Tour finishing near 9/11 Memorial (Lunch Inc), Century 21 shopping, Back to hotel, Dinner?
Monday - Nothing planned as yet, lunch, Woodbury Common, Dinner
Tuesday - Liberty Island, Lunch, Brooklyn Bridge, Park Slope, Dinner
Wednesday - RGR Food tour, Highline, Dinner close to Yankee stadium, Baseball game @ Stadium
Thursday - Grand Central, Oyster Bar, Shopping Maddison, Empire State, Dinner
Here are some of the restaurants I've been looking at, will appreciate your opinions:
Apologies for the long post! Any advice would be appreciated. TIA
