Second Day in New York City

After a nice deep sleep in the hotel (car rides can be very tiring!), we woke up, ready for a fun-packed day.

The first thing on our itinerary was watching Billy Elliot: The Musical. Boy, was there a huge line waiting for the tickets. The inside of the theatre was filled!

Billy Elliot was truly amazing. The choreography was awe-inspiring (especially the solo of Billy Elliot himself) and the songs were powerful. The strong English accent was a bit distracting at times, but otherwise the musical was great. (Sorry for no photos: it wasn’t allowed).

Upon exiting into Times Square, the dazzling sunlight of high noon hurt our eyes that had become accustomed to the darkness of the theatre. All around was hustling and bustling. It was quite overwhelming, but I soon got used to it.

Though we had only started to walk, our legs soon got tired, so we decided to enter any old restaurant that we first came across instead of going to Bann (the restaurant we went to yesterday) as planned. This happened to be The Capital Grille Restaurant (though we only found out later): the then best ranking restaurant in NYC. No wonder it looked so fancy and the food (mostly steak) tasted so good!

I give this restaurant 1.5 stars. The ambience was very classy and the service was really good. The only reason I didn’t give it 2 stars, though, is that I don’t like steak that much. It’s just a preference, I guess.

After that, we came back to our hotel and rested, for the to-do list for tomorrow was full!
