A super full on day with a lot of sparkling drinks.
First off, Liz and I first had lunch at Del Posto, a Michelin Star Restaurant. They gave a wonderful experience. They had a live pianist – that’s all the elegance right there!
It was an incredibly spacious restaurant. I believe they have about 3 floors – the main floor is where main dining area is along with the bar area on the far left. Then there’s a beautiful staircase leading to the mezzanine level for larger parties. Finally, there’s a lower level for the private dining rooms/events.
Onto the experience: We had their lunch prix fixe menu of about $50, in which I think is amazingly affordable. Unfortunately, I’m bad at remembering what I had – all I know is that it was delicious delicious delicious! I am definitely planning to visit again.
The geniuses behind the incredible restaurant are: Lidia Bastianich, Mario Batali, and Joe Bastianich. The experience was truly amazing! I highly recommend making a reservation to get your own wonderful experience, www.delposto.com
After that, we headed to the Richard Rogers Theatre by Subway. For a moment, we thought we were late when actually we were super early! So, we had a another dessert at Le Bernardin – another Michelin Star Restaurant. Again, I forgot what I had (Note to self: Write things down!)
Finally, we walked to the theatre and gosh there were so many people! This was my very first NYC Broadway Show so I have no clue how things work. Apparently, the people outside that waits in a long line are those who are waiting for any last minute cancellation tickets or those who are hoping that the characters would do a pop up greet? I don’t know – I could be 100% wrong.
Okay so Liz did her thing with getting tickets which was funny because we had to cut through so many lines. Then when we sat down, it took me a while to realise that we were sitting on the 5th row to the stage! – It was so close!! The show immediately started and everything just happened. I’m sure my jaw dropped all the way. To be honest, I had no idea who Alexander Hamilton was – he sure was and is important. He created the financial system that we use until today. The show was very educational and a must see!
I enjoyed every bit of it. I guess I can truly call myself a New Yorker now? Naaah. Haha.
