    The fact you went to Taco Bell TWICE instead of grabbing a slice late night shows you just aren’t a fit for this great city

    Just picked up some scallops and striped bass at a farmers market on Shelter Island

    I think I legally have to get a Vineyard Vines tattoo on my chest and change my name to Parker

    Well, when I first started this list 10 years ago, the high line was still in phase 1 and nobody knew about it. Also, if you go during the week, it’s not very touristy at all. I’m also assessing the level of “touristy” with things like Times Sqaure, Top of the Rock, and the Statue of Liberty.

    The last 5+ years, the weekends are a nightmare filled with tourists, mostly foreign. Update that list to advise going on a weekday.

    Taco Bell Cantina would definitely have less tourists in it than the High Line fwiw

    I always eat exclusively at McDonalds when in New York so I don’t seem touristy.

    Went to Carbone last night. The rigatoni vodka was out of this world, but the rest was pretty standard Italian fare at that price point. Service was also fantastic.

    Last minute trip - does Rezdora allow walk-ins (2 top)? And if so what time should I shoot for on a Saturday night? Would gladly eat at the bar.

    $3-400/night budget. Leaning towards staying in midtown (close to shows, restaurants and museums? ). Any other options?

    First time going so I don't mind being a tourist. Need some great dive and cunty bars as well.
