So many disappointing meals in NYC that I tend to stick to my favorites. abcV, but only for breakfast, Del Posto (never had a bad meal there and some of the food has been extraordinary – I’m a big Melissa Rodriguez fan), Marta for pizza, and lately Kawi. Had an extraordinary omelette for breakfast last fall at NoMad Hotel – maybe the best I’ve ever had – hope that the recent changes with ownership of the restaurant there doesn’t screw that up. Superiority Burger always makes me happy, albeit not when it is crowded there. I haven’t tried a lot of the “in” places that don’t take reservations and there is a wait or where reservations are hard to get.
Tried Ai Fiori recently (thought maybe I should branch out from Del Posto) and thought it was horrible.
Went to Barbuto before it closed and didn’t like the vaunted roast chicken there, but the other dishes were good.
Tak Room roast chicken is now sounding more appealing, but not doable solo since it is a large format dish for two. Call me crazy, but I like Hudson Yards.
