    besides the places listed are there any other places to visit?

    What about mitchells? I love Wilkes out here in the bay area and would like to check out their east coast stores. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    One of my co-workers also mentioned the Meat Packing District and I saw a bunch of spots that look really sweet so I will probably add that to my agenda.

    When I lived in NYC, I used to just wander around Soho, the upper eastside, and the business district, there are so many random boutiques and stores there worth checking out.

    The RL mansion is worth seeing. 75th and Madison if I remember my cross streets correctly.

    +1, although I've never been there before midnight. It's cheap and good when you're stumbling around the Village at 2am. Right around the corner from the Blue Note jazz club.

    Same here. It would feel strange being there pre-revelries.

    Go to 21 Club for lunch or dinner.

    I absolutely love it there. I'm there at least once a week.

    For an afternoon snack; hit up Ino in the West Village and get an order, or two of the Truffled Eggs toast and a glass of their Montepulciano.

    Hit up Prosperity Dumpling in China Town - get the dumplings and a few pancake sandwiches.

    You need to give us some parameters as to what you are looking for in dining: cuisine, area, cost. New York has a lot to offer, there are also a lot of previous threads on this. Do not go to the 21 Club. Very pricey, average food at best. For upscale dining, I'm fond of Babbo and Le Bernardin among many others. You're probably too late to get reservations for Babbo, however. All David Chang's places (the Momofukus, etc,) are great. David Bouley's new place, Brushstroke, sounds really interesting but I haven't been yet.
    For clothes, the sky's the limit.
    For discounts, try Daffy's and Century 21.

    If you don't want to go to Brooklyn for Luger's then I would highly suggest Uncle Jack's Steakhouse. They have a special (as of last week) 35 day aged steak which is excellent. Also great salad and crab cakes.

    9th Ave and 35th I believe.
