This place does an incredible 5 course lunch. It's $55, but the food and service are top-notch. Really a helluva deal. It would cost 2X that for dinner - easy.

 

Yes! That lunch menu looks pretty good.

Bump:
Taking a weekend trip to NYC this October for the GG trunk show, and wanted to use my time wisely.

I have planed to stop by places like the Alden, JL, C&J, TF, Hermes, & RL boutiques. But i also wanted to browse around for some bargain kops. Is the Woodbury Outlets good enough to visit for half a day? Or is it better to visit places like Neimans, Saks, Barneys, Berdorff, & C21 instead?

Thanks for the help gents, it won't be my last trip to NYC, but it will have to do for a few months...

My Big Four (your tastes may vary) for a NYC visit are NMWA (make an appointment in advance for a weekday visit), Epaulet, Carson Street Clothiers, and The Armoury. C'H'C'M' is very close to Carson Street and is occasionally worth a stop. Of the big department stores, I like Bloomies for their Eidos collection. Barney's has one floor (I think it's the fourth) that I like. There's nothing that interests me at Bergdorf. C21 is a bit out of the way in lower Manhattan and doesn't warrant a stop from me unless I know from SF that there's something worth checking out.

That's good to know, i forgot about Bloomies. I will have to add the SF favorites into my agenda. So what are your thoughts on Woodbury? It's a bit away from my hotel in midtown, so i don't know if it's worth a trip... shog[1].gif

I've never been to Woodbury. Based on my experience with outlet malls (albeit lesser ones), I recommend skipping it unless you have advance knowledge of items worth seeing or a lot of free time on your hands. It's a half day or more out of your schedule when you factor in the travel time and time spent browsing.

Fair enough, i'll probably skip Woodbury Outlet then. My last order of business is a recommendation for pizza in midtown. Thanks for the help... thumbs-up.gif

Don Antonio for pizza in midtown. They do the Neapolitan style half-baked and half fried pizza. Their specialties are the Angioletti and the Montenara.

1 year bump?  

 

Looking for a couple dope stores with male/female stuff preferably with some sales since tis' the season for steep discounts.  Female half leans towards monochromatic stuff i.e. Helmut, Totokaelo, but also urban/asos/etc.  

 

Despite being in NY a good amount, haven't really ventured too far outside of the main Soho road (so I've been to..say..Opening Ceremony, but nothing much more interesting then that).  Will be in Soho to check out COS for some basics, but other then that could use recommendations of anything even (somewhat) close by.

 

Cheap (i.e. meal < 25) food recs would be dope too

 

edit: whoops didn't realize this was CM

Your syntax does not evince a predilection for classical clothing so I
thought Jay Kos in the SOHO area might be worth visiting. I was there
a month ago in search of the slightly eccentric classic clothing that he
used to offer. Now the emphasis is far more fashion forward, although
I was assured that my kind of stuff was still available to order. If you
are lucky Mr Kos will be present. He's a great schmoozer, as I learned
several years ago.

As for cheap high quality food, including take-out, I can recommend the chain
Pret a Manger with branches throughout Manhattan.

For decent Italian food in Greewich Village, try Gene's:

Another Italian eatery is Sam's Place, 39th and Lexington
is Sam's Place

For Kosher-Style Deli in the same neighborhood there's
Sarges and the Second Ave Deli:

Anyone been to Gentry recently? Is the sale (particularly on Eidos items) worth a detour from Manhattan?

Depends on your taste. It is more SWD, less MC.

Sorry to revive this old thread but I'm flying out to New York next week and I just want to know what your recommendations are? Leffot and epaulet has already been planned.

Recommendations in terms of shops and resto's would be great.
