One night only in Manhattan. Where to have dinner?

No steakhouses or clubby "scenes" -- just really terrific food, preferably near midtown. I know you DL'ers have impeccable taste...

Per Se.

R1 is correct, you won't do any better than Per Se in midtown.

Tad's Steak House. It's fabulous and reasonable.

Aureole is wonderful, on W 42nd. The Dining Room is the best, vs the Bar Room, yet both are quite good.

When I read that someone has only one or two nights in a city and asks about restaurants, I figure they're a typical obese American. Their only interest is food.

Any Beefsteak Charlie's is fine. Or try Denny's.

Try Thalia. Excellent food, casual vibe, not too pretentious or pricey and conveniently located near the Theater District.

yes R5, that makes total sense. Anyone else would just not bother to eat for two days.

I hate restaurants with the menu approach like Per Se.

Loathe those joints.

Yes, you're right. It was brilliant of you to notice.

There is so much to see and do in New York, that stopping for a meal for a few hours is a waste of time if you want to enjoy the city during a brief visit.

Delis, soup Nazis, and hot dog carts let someone grab a quick bite to eat while moving between sights, museums, and shows. R9 would rather sit for three hours stuffing his fat face to add to his 320 lb. obesity in a quest to match his idol, Chris Christie.

The first restaurant to come to mind is Per Se, but you also should consider Le Bernardin, Jean Georges, or Brooklyn Fare.

If price is a concern, a lot of DLers seem to be partial to the Olive Garden in Times Square!!!

Like R1 and R12 advised, go to Per Se, Jean Georges, or Le Bernardin. You might also try Cafe Boulud. If you are in the Theatre District, try Orso.

Shorter version of R11: The most exotic place I have ever visited is EPCOT, so I cant imagine why someone while visiting a world class city would want to treat themselves to a fine meal. If there aren't pictures on the menu, its not worth going to.

I'd spend all day at the Museum of Modern Art, then eat at one of their restaurants, The Modern, or less expensively, at the Bar Room.

Why do you hate food so much?

Before DL, I'd never read so much proanaism.

R17 if you ate at filthy delis and hotdog carts, you would hate food too.

by Anonymousreply 2004/18/2013

I have never eaten at a hot dog cart in my life, R20. And deli is something I eat once a year, if that.

Irony defined: Being called unhealthy by someone who eats food off the street.

Those places are not cheap, though. BRING MONEY.

R21 I realize that. I was referring to R11. For some strange reason, healthy eating advice from someone who recommends eating salted carcinogens doesn't have the impact they think it should.
