I’ll be visiting NYC for a weekend (coming from Boston) in May and am overwhelmed by the options. We’ll probably have 1 lunch and 1 dinner and are open to anything, but we’re not so interested in super high-end dining. We’re staying in Manhattan and would probably prefer dining options there.
Here are some places that sounded interesting as I was browsing around online; comments on any of these, or suggestions for other places to consider? We’re not vegetarian but appreciate good vegetables more than meat, and we’d love to have something that we can’t get so easily in Boston. Here are a few places that caught my eye as I was browsing for recommendations:
- Dirt Candy: We’ve been to the old location; is it worthwhile to also go to a new location? A few comments seem to suggest the new is not as great as the old.
- Rasa (Malaysian food in Boston is lacking)
- Kottu House (Sri Lankan is also lacking)
Also, are there any good bread bakeries worth visiting? I’m especially a fan of bakeries that incorporate a variety of grains. (Bakeries with sweets are also good; we still think about the Levain Bakery chocolate chip cookie and will probably try to get one!)
