Iâ€™m in New York City today and tomorrow. Work, not pleasure, but here’s a chance to have one great meal: Dinner tonight. Not that Iâ€™ll be fasting, but the other meals will be provided to me. So I sit here facing the tough decision of where Iâ€™ll have my one New York meal. Itâ€™s not like Iâ€™ll never be back in New York, but why not have a memorable meal? I asked a friend where he would go if he had only one dinner in New York. He said Mario Batali’s Babbo. Another person suggested David Chang’s Momofuku Saam â€“ if Iâ€™ve got daring, he said. I like to think I do, but I’ll have to gauge how experimental my friends are feeling tonight. Someone else recommended Prune and Mary’s Fish Camp. Looked at their menus and they sound delicious. Prune’s in particular. I’m also considering another of Bataliâ€™s restaurants: Casa Mono. Sounds like a fun place to go to with friends and itâ€™s a less expensive than Babbo. Sigh. What to choose when the possibilities are endless? I’m leaning towards being daring but I might have some convincing to do.
