A high end restaurant is per se, it is a high end restaurant which has great reviews and very good chefs.
A lower end restaurant is le bernardin, it still had very good reviews and is a lot cheaper.
Overall I think New York would be a wonderful place to visit, even though it is very expensive.Personally I would love to go to a big department store in New York, but it still would be a dream come true to go to New York in general. I would want to go shopping and broadway especially.
