Mrs. Debaser and I are headed to New York next week and she has made some reservations:
La Esquina JoJo Jungsik OR Ma Peche … res for both at the same time.
Other possibilities are :
ABC Kitchen Central Park Boathouse Il Gattopordo
I think we have the fine dining front covered and i was hoping some FDB poster could help out with some more casual must eat kind of places. I saw that there are a lot of eateries on 9th Avenue that may fit the bill.
Going up to see the Stones and catch a couple plays.
I think Ma Peche has gone downhill since Tien Ho left the kitchen a while back. I've eaten there probably half a dozen times and each meal was of a lesser quality than the previous one. The other momofuku restaurants are better IMO. Eataly is a good bet, just don't go around 5-6 during the week, especially on Friday's, it's mobbed.
