Hi All, I know there are a ton of NYC threads but I am looking for some suggestions for my personal situation. I'm thinking of taking my fiancee up to NYC either next weekend or the following weekend for her burthday, and was hoping some of you could help me out with some decisions. Hotel Last time we were in NY we stayed at Le Parker Meredian. It was ok, but we would like to try something different. I am a Starwood platinum member with a good amount of points so I prefer to stay Starwood. I am deciding the W on Lexington, the St. Regis, and The Chatwal. Anyone have any experience with any of these three hotels? I am sure they are all nice, but am curious if there is any reason to pick one over the other. Restaurants Last time we were in NYC we ate at The Spotted Pig and Momofuku Ssam bar and enjoyed both. Any recommendations of restaurants that are similar in nature? Not looking for $300 pp tasting menus, but don't mind spending some money. Was thinking anout Momofuku Ko? She isn't into super creative food, just stuff that tastes great and isnt overly complex. I have spent a ton of time reading about NYC restaurants and checking with tings like The Michelin Guide , etc. (even though I know most of these ratings are crap). I am hoping the SF community can help me out with some suggestions. Shopping Since we are from Philadelphia and the shopping is terrible here, we usually take a walk down 5th ave and Madison and window shop. Any good sales going on in the next few weeks? Thanks is advance!
