Anyone with excellent restaurant suggestions for New York or Boston? I will be working for a few days in Montreal starting Monday, but on Friday we will be free as birds and plan to take a train down to New York for a few days, then to Boston for a few days. Neither of us have been to those cities before...

It has been a while since I've been to NewYork City. There was a fantastic bistro that I went to (around 70th???) I'll search through my mixed-up files to see if I can find the name of it. Of course, it may no longer be there and/or changed hands by now.
However, whenever I go to NewYork, I like to wander through the Frick Gallery. It is the perfect size for an art gallery - not overwhelming. The gallery is in the house where Frick lived. There are four wonderful Whistler portraits in the oval room. Here is a photo of one of them: Symphony in Flesh Color and Pink: Portrait of Mrs. Frances Leyland
