Hey guys/gals. I know there are a lot of you from various parts of the country, however it seems like there are a lot of people on this forum from NY. So here's the deal. My wife and I are traveling there this September (to the city) and was wondering if you could recommend some good places to eat and shop while we're there. We're coming from the west coast so the fine shopping out here is basically Nordstrom, Neimen Marcus and Brook Brothers. Needless to say we're pretty excited to see what the fashion capitol of the US has to offer. We generally enjoy the nicer things, but HATE paying full price. Food is another story though. We LOVE to enjoy fine dining. So what does the best of NYC have to offer? EDIT: If you could include what we should expect to pay for a meal if you have a restaurant recommendation it would be appreciated.
