Chau, is this visit set in stone? If it is, I'll start a new thread and see who else might be able to join us and where everyone wants to go.
Start thinking about where you want to go. Based upon your bake time preference and the VIP treatment John can get for us, I think Vesta should be a consideration, although that will involve a train ride out to NJ. If you do come out to NJ, then I think a trip to Pizza Town is also in order.
I'm not sure what Larry's schedule is like, but he was invaluable in scoring us the the VIP treatment at Keste. Not that VIP treatment is critical- we'll have fun without chatting with Roberto or Frank, but it's always nice when someone knows the owner and we can chew their ear off for a bit. Maybe we could get some Roberto face time at Don Antonio.
If we do a Brooklyn leg, I think we should do Barboncino- and I'd also like you to taste a white pie at Best. I'll be driving in to Brooklyn through Manhattan, so I can pick you up.
