Travelling by train can be quite relaxing and it was great leaving the car in Stamford for the 45 minute fast train to NYC.
We arrived at Penn Station and walked 2 blocks to our hotel the Holiday Inn. It’s not the best area – pretty unexceptional street but handy and good for a night.
We came back a day early and our hotel near the Chelsea Markets didn’t have a spare room!
We got ready for our dinner with Rob & Jordan and took off in the Red Line 1 for Wall Street and Manhatta restaurant.
Check it out because it was amazing.
The view, the food, the atmosphere and the restaurant itself. It has a $80 a head, 3 course set menu. If you pair with wines add $58, or choose from a well-selected, well-priced wine menu. There are about 5 choices in each course. They give generous breads with pate to start and 2 lovely chocolates at the end.
So you know what you are going to be paying. And it’s all delicious. And NO tipping! In NY that’s amazing. They practically chase you down for tips here. But this restaurant has a no-tipping policy and the staff couldn’t be nicer.
It was lovely spending time with the kids.
We started with drinks and admired the view. You can see Rob’s office from here. Right on Wall Street. See the arrow in the photo pointing at it.
It was a great night and even the subway trip home was entertaining!

Loved the Manhattan skyline views & the arrows to Rob’s Wall St office. The restaurant sounds amazing too!
Restaurant sounds divine, Fran. Bx
Sounds and looks like a perfect night!
Manhatta looks amazing! Would love to try that one some time – the group that owns it is Union Square Hospitality Group, they have a no-tipping policy across the group because they prefer to pay their staff a fair wage – so refreshing to see in New York! The owner of the group, Danny Meyer, is an interesting guy – he has a book about hospitality & business which I’m keen to read.
