Restaurant Recommendations - Page 81

Sweet, might check it out, maybe for breakfast or something.

I'll be there bumming around during the daytime too, anyone do an afternoon tea? I've never really done one, thinking of the one at Mandarin might be pretty relaxing.

Staying at Le Parker Meridien (56th and Broadway) over a long weekend in late March. We have a few faves we'll be hitting but I thought it would be fun to go on a restaurant/bar crawl one night, just hitting 3-5 places within walking distance of each other, sitting at the bar and having some small items from each. Would appreciate recommendations on what part of town would be best for this if we were looking for a good variety of well regarded places. I'm sure plenty of people have done something similar and have some good groupings they can share.

I prefer downtown for this. Maialino -> Grammercy Tavern -> Aldea -> Tocqueville sounds like a nice time. There's plenty of other options to choose from too.

alternatively, the upper west side is becoming surprisingly good. Bar Boulud -> Boulud Sud -> Salumeria Rossi -> Marea -> Jean Georges or Per Se to end on a high note.

Agree - but if you want to stay in that hood, there are plenty of things to check out...

Maybe - BLT Market -> Plaza Food Hall -> Lavo -> Tao -> Bergdorff's Bar in the Men's section -> Ma Peche -> The Modern.. it's lots of "see and be seen" in upper mid-town. There's also Adour, L'Atelier de JR, La Petite Maison...

Am I the only one who thinks this place is circling the drain? I've probably eaten there half a dozen times in the last year and each meal is weaker than the last, with thinner crowds at every visit.

Robert on the top floor of the Museum of Design has beautiful views overlooking Central Park. Particularly good at night if you sit next to the windows because you are at the apex of Broadway and CPW.
Hudson Hotel has a good outdoor bar, if it happens to be warm enough. The library bar is nice too.
The Dream Hotel bar has some nice views, though not as good as Robert.
For an Izakaya experience, I prefer the cheap and gritty Sake Bar Hagi, but some prefer Totto.

I haven't been in a few months... not what it used to be, but it was still okay last time I went.

Goosefoot in Chicago. One of the best meals I've had in a long time. The food and service were amazing.

Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria in NYC gets 3 stars from The Times. I am far from a critic follower but the menu looks great, I am going to give it a shot on my trip.

Hit up STK in Vegas tonight. Surprisingly good bone in ribeye. The carpaccio wasn't that good, it was still a little frozen, it was good flavorwise but the coldness wasn't very good. Creamed spinach wasn't that good either. Prices weren't too bad. Steaks were good though and its pretty scene-y.

Ate at Jaleo last night. Few tapas...some good, some not. The Fideos (didn't have time to wait for the paellea) and the iberrico pork loin were great (the pork loin was amazing).

Mesa Grill was solid (green chile burger), but not outstanding.

High Tea at the Mandarin Orientel is highly recommended. Very calming and soothing.

Mandarin Oriental teas are quite something aren't they.. My favorite tea is Osmanthus Oolong

 

Both of their MOZen & Pierre Gagnaire's Twist are very good too.

I thought Twist was a joke. Guy Savoy is good
