My goals for NYC are food and art – and lots of it

Erin and I are off to NYC this weekend and I am getting hungry just thinking about it. Because the first thing we did when we decided we were going, was to think about where we could go eat. I watch tons of cooking shows and can recognize way too many chefs by name or face. Here are the four very different chefs that we are hoping to eat at their restaurants, from left to right, Bobby Flay (Mesa Grill), Mario Batali (Babbo Ristorante), David Chang (Momofuku Noodle Bar), and Wylie Dufresne (WD-50).

And then there is art, we already have tickets to three of the premier modern art museums in the world, from left to right, The Metropolitain Museum of Art (MET), The Guggenheim, Museum of Modern Art (MoMa).

A few of the masterpieces I will be able to scratch off my must-see list are Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory and Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, and Hokusai’s The Great Wave.

I am also excited to just see the sites and take some pics of my own. A couple places where I expect to get good photos are the top of the Empire State Building and also during our Clipper City Tall Ship Cruise that will give us a waterfront view of the city.
