New York, New York! I am counting the days. You know, we got married there. It was just us and an officiant in Central Park. So the Big Apple will always have a place in my heart. But my marriage is not the topic of the post. It is the wine planning I we are doing for the trip. And I would really appreciate to get some help from you.
After browsing and googling for a few hours, we came to the conclusion that there are a lot of great wine spots in the city. However, most of them are into European wines. Of course I love French, Spanish and Italian wines as well, but I am not flying all the way over the Atlantic to have something I can buy at home. I want to taste American wines, and it seems that few wine bars specialize on the home market. Or have I just looked in the wrong place?
Here is a list of places we are planning to visit. I included both the restaurants and the wine bars, just in case you are interested on the food-research as well. And now I challenge you, who have visited or perhaps even live close to New York, to give my list a boost with suggestions and recommendations. I even want to know about the places I definitely should not visit. If I can get some good tips, I promise to make a post about them after we have visited.
Lunch: These places we noticed have some kind of good lunch deals
- the Clocktower
- Boloud Sud
- Gabriel Kreuter
- The Spotted Pig
- 11 Madisson Park (in my wild dreams, but if I try to save some money, maybe….)
- Momofuku ko
- the Modern
- Unclu Boons
Wine: and maybe dinner as well
- Fancy Nancy
- Hotel Delmano
- Corkbuzz Wine Studio
- Terroir (has a happy hour from 4pm-6pm)
- the Camlin
- Fifty Paces (happy hour from 5pm-7pm)
- el Comado Butchery (local wines, yay!)
- Custom American Wine Bar (more local wines!)
So come on! Give me some feedback o the list! And suggestions! I will be forever grateful.
