Brooklyn dinner? Bronx Breakfast? And opinions on the zoo?

Jump to last reply

Hi, folks, back to planning for the week after Christmas.

I was thinking spending one day in Brooklyn, just window shopping. Head over for an afternoon, go out for a nice dinner, check out Dyker heights lights. there’s also a holiday burlesque show at night that sound like fun. I gather Williamsburg is hipster central? Any favorite stores or other sights or neighborhoods I should check out? Would a half day be enough, or should I just plan a whole day?

Food as always is a priority. I’m considering St. Anselms because steak sounds delicious right now, but I’m open to other options.

What are your favorite NYC steakhouses in general?Italian? I think it’s the weather, but I’m suddenly craving comfort food.

How about raw bars? Brunch? Bagels for breakfast?

Ok, I may need a snack. I’m making myself hungry!

Moving on:

Has anyone been to the ice carving display at the Bronx Zoo? Or do you have opinions in general? I was thinking of heading out early, getting breakfast somewhere in the Bronx, and going to the train show at Botanical gardens and the zoo afterwards if the weather allows. How much time should I plan for the zoo? Breakfast recommendations for Bronx? Do I need to buy train show tickets ahead of time?

Basically, I’m thinking one day for the Met and the Frick, one day for Brooklyn, and one day for the Bronx. One day to just relax and enjoy the Season- Bryant Park, window displays, rockettes, etc. does that sound like a practical plan? Should I try to fit in the tenement museum or Guggenheim? What day? Have not made it to either previously.

If I don’t respond, btw, it’s not that I don’t love and cherish your often fantastic advice, it’s just that for some reason the forum is not allowing me to do so! Thanks!
