@Akeru: do you like Seafood? My fav go to restaurant is Eds Lobster Bar, its in SoHo.
Of course there are plenty of steak houses to go to…my favorite is Prime Steakhouse
Since you will be in Times Square, there is a restaurant on top of the Marriot Hotel called The View and the restaurant spins…it gives you a 360 view of the city. You dont even know the floor is turning. Def check that out!!!
Enjoy and dont lwt the grumpy New Yorkers scare you…they are just in a rush haha

For casual, I love John’s Pizzeria on 44th between 7th and 8th. It’s in an old church so the building is stunning. But the pizza is amazing!!!!
For fancy, there are a ton of celebrity chef places. DH is a huge foodie so we’ve been to a lot of them. The Lambs Club is my favorite. The food was excellent – pricey, very very pricey, but excellent!

Do yourself a favour and go to Jean-George’s in the trump hotel building overlooking Central Park. They have incredible lunch deals and the food…I die.
I think Daniel is also a must.

When we eloped to NYC last year we ate at Keen’s Steakhouse and it was amazing! We also really loved Gramercy Tavern (quite expensive though).

Hands down you have to go to Serendipity. Look it up and you will know why! 😉 Catch and STK are also great ! I love dining in NYC!

Catch and STK are places where Celebrities go for dinner in NYC. Make reservations ALWAYS in NYC or else you will be stuck waiting hours to sit down for dinner!

We were just in NYC and got engaged there. If you want the best hot chocolate ever go to Chocolat Michel Cluizel on 5th Ave. OMG. I would have licked the inside of the cup if I could have figured out how to get my tounge in there. We also really liked The Marshall in Hell’s Kitchen for breakfast/brunch. We liked it so much we went back the second day.

Make a reservation at Peter Luger’s for a classic New York steakhouse experience. Tons of great restaurants in NYC. It just depends what you like best.

For upscale Italian food try Scarpetta. Delicious pasta.
For pizza I recommend Grimaldi’s or Lombardi’s. Or if you’re in Brooklyn, DiFara is my favorite pizza of all time!
I don’t eat steak, but I second the Peter Luger rec if you do! Pretty much everyone I know who has been there loved it!

I also love the all you can drink brunch at Kittichai in Soho. They have Thai food, but it’s so good.
Post # 15
If you like pizza, definitely try out Grimaldi’s or Lombardi’s.
@CityBearBride: lol you pretty much got it down pat! +100

I live alking distance from Grimaldi’s and I dont understand the hype.
Gyu-Kaku (great date spot and you can cook your own food)
brunch at Yotel or Beauty and Essex
people like Carmine’s (I’m not a fan of Italian so I dont know)
Catch isnt that great food wise but it’s good to people watch and always packed
Sugar Factory (awesome drinks!!)
