My NYC Bucket List

It’s hard to believe but Jeff and I have less than a month left in the city, 24 days to be exact. We’ve been talking a lot about what we want to do before we leave and how we should spend our last days. To be honest, there is plenty of things I haven’t seen in the city, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and so on. But we’re both more concerned about the food we haven’t eaten and the cocktails we haven’t tried.

So we put together a bucket list of 5 NYC restaurants we must try. Why only 5? Well for one, there is a bit of a budget issue, fine dining in NYC isn’t cheap and money doesn’t grow on trees. Then there is the time issue. I’m actually only going Miroverve to be in the city for a very limited amount of time in the next few weeks. I’m going to Chicago from November 12-17 and then Philadelphia for Thanksgiving weekend, so that’s two whole weeks where we can’t eat out.

But that’s not going to stop us from making the most of our last few weeks. Besides the restaurants, we also plan to blow it out with friends and roommates. From brunch at Balthazar, to the Boom Boom Room for a going away get together, we aren’t going to leave anything untouched. ;)

So here’s are first piece – the restaurant bucket list;

1. Momofuku


2. Minetta Tavern

3. The Spotted Pig

The Spotted Pig

4. Prune

5. TBD – Got to leave something as a surprise.

If you could eat at any one restaurant in NYC what would it be?

    They all look great.
    If I had to pick one, I would pick Five Burro’s. I see it so much on Missy’s blog that I’m obsessed with it!
