The hubs has a conference in NYC starting Thursday afternoon and running through Friday night; we are going to stay in the City until mid-morning Sunday. We are staying near Times Square (Yes, we will get some snacks at the Theater District Shake Shack!).
DH has conference stuff Thursday afternoon and evening and until Friday evening. Friday night, we will be going to dinner with people from the conference, so that probably means steak somewhere (maybe Maloney & Porcelli) or Blue Ribbon with this crowd.
Saturday afternoon we are going to catch a show, grab early dinner at Pok-Pok, go to cabaret show, and then late supper somewhere.
Sunday morning we plan to get up pretty early and hit our favorite Lower East Side joints (Donut Plant, Kossar's, Yonah Schimmel, Russ & Daughters) before getting the plane.
I have Thursday after about 3 p.m. and all day Friday until cocktail hour to myself and I need to figure out where to eat that will be comfortable for me alone. Also, the hubs and I would like some suggestions for Friday dinner (in case we can get away on our own), and Saturday brekkie, lunch and late night.
DH and I have been to a number of the faves here on prior trips (e.g. Eleven Madison Park, Momofuku Ssam Bar, Esca, Delmonico, Pearl Oyster, The Breslin, Ippudo).
Suggestions? We are open to eating high or low and grazing (i.e. hitting a couple spots in one night) and flexible on location, although we would prefer not to spend all of our time trekking around.
