New York City Trip!

May 1, 2012   //   by sleveene   //   Uncategorized  //  9 Comments

We here are Global Itineraries are getting so excited for our trip to New York City May 10-14.  We used to live there and love visiting whenever we can.  So what are we doing there?  Besides a wonderful family wedding, here are some of the places we plan to visit this time around:

Auction House – Head to the Upper East Side for this non-traditional bar that looks like a living room in an old    mansion/castle.





Brinkley’s – A great pub and restaurant in SoHo.  Yes, this adorable bear is their logo!






Central Park – The one and only.  We’re looking forward to a Mother’s Day picnic here, weather-permitting!






City Hall Restaurant – The site of the wedding!  Can’t wait for our first visit to this TriBeCa favorite!





El Castillo de Jagua – A Lower East Side favorite for Cuban food.  It may be a dive, but they have fantastic lunch specials including Cuban sandwiches and chicken with rice and beans.



Lower East Side Tenement Museum – One of the most amazing museums in NYC.  This National Historic Landmark is open to the public for tours and tells the stories of real immigrants who lived at 97 Orchard Street from 1863-1935.



Wo Hop – A Chinatown institution.  This greasy spoon is 24 hours and is an infamous place to go for cheap Chinese.  Make sure to dine in the basement and not upstairs, order the roast duck chow fun and pick up a t-shirt before you leave!





Wolfgang’s Steakhouse – Can’t get into Peter Lugar’s in Brooklyn, arguably the best steak restaurant in town?  Then head over to Wolfgang’s where a former Peter Lugar’s chef now works.
