  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

While plenty of New York restaurants have lately made the environment a priority—sourcing their ingredients locally and crafting dining rooms from salvaged materials—none have done so with quite as much visual and gastronomic panache as chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s new ABC Kitchen. The

The Book of Mormon

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 3/4
  • Critics choice

If theater is your religion and the Broadway musical your sect, you've been woefully faith-challenged of late. Venturesome, boundary-pushing works such as Spring Awakening, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Next to Normal closed too soon. American Idiot was shamefully ignored at the Tonys and will

Hamilton: Theater review by David Cote History ticks to a syncopated beat in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s jubilant, overflowingly rich Hamilton. And just as syncopation achieves its energizing effect by disturbing the expected flow, so Miranda’s biomusical on founding father Alexander Hamilton is a

Merlin James, "Genre Paintings"

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice
  • Free

I'll be arriving in New York in may. It's my first time visiting NYC and I was thinking to stay either at Hilton or Intercontinental. They're both really nice and in my price range. I'm inclined to go to Hilton just so I won't have any surprises. Wouldn't mind to see Emma Stone at the Cabaret also.

We will be heading to New York next month. It will be a very fun trip. However, we have no idea where to stay. Thanks for posting the prices of the hotels there. We are going to try and save as much money as we can. Finding a cheaper hotel would be ideal for us. http://www.cbvipg.com/
