Trip Report-NYC Fly By

Back for a couple nights in Gotham. Here are some highlights:

Dream Downtown:

We love the Mondrian SoHo but decided to switch it up. Great location a block from Chelsea Market and The Highline. Rooms are tight but fun. Upgrade to Gold level for exceptional views of the ESB. Lobby lounge DJ spinning hip hop...love! PHD on roof spinning Pop which was forgivable because the views up there were unreal.

Del Posto:

Forgot how flawless the execution is at this place. Met a friend for pre ballet impromptu dinner. Octopus, 100 Layer Lasagna, Amuse...fantastic.

9/11 Museum:

Like many, I lost a friend that day. Museum is a beautiful space that tells the story with grace.

NYC Ballet - A Midsummer Nights Dream:

I'm not sure I've seen ballet or heard and orchestra before this. Wow. Just wow.

Daniel:

We didn't love DB Bistro Modern a few years ago but Daniel is something other worldy. If you are a fan of The French Laundry and per se you'll be right at home. Each course felt innovative yet time tested. Bursting with flavor and plated to perfection.

Headed to DC next.

Thanks for reading.

Doc Jay.

Sounds like a fun 2 night trip. The Octopus and 100 Layer Lasagna sound awesome. I have added Del Posto to my prelim restaurant list for my next trip.
