Dining out in New York – Buddakan


Buddakan - chic Asian 
‘Modern Asian’ in a modish setting, on a Monday: The jeunesse dorée of NYC are familiar with Buddakan and its obliging, thoughtful, far-eastern dishes.
Our menu choices did not drown the delicate Sauvignon Blanc.
The service is warm and professional at Buddakan.
Dress code is ‘downtown chic, fun, hip' declares the website.
St Marks, we grew to love it.

This was the first night of several planned by daughters Megan and Bronnie. I was over here for work; they were over here for fun, via my Air Miles.

Throughout our time in NY we stayed at the St Marks hotel. An unprepossessing yet friendly boarding house suggested by my client (it was very close to where I was working). After the initial shock,we grew accustomed to the place. It was clean and well situated downtown between 2nd and 3rd.
