New York City Restaurant Recommendations for an LA Friend Who Is Visiting the City

Ever since I was a babe-in-arms, I have visited New York every year from my home in Los Angeles.I grew up visiting New York City because my grandmother lived on 110th close to Amsterdam, with a view of St. John the Divine. 

For several years I taught at RIC in Providence, R.I., so I visited more frequently. Since I am now LA-based, on average I visit the city at least twice a year. 

When I visit, it's only for a few days, which means I walk a lot (LA is a city-for-cars-only) and I revisit my favorites. 
New York City has thousands of restaurants and millions of residents and visitors. Everyone has their favorite restaurants. These are mine.
