Most Memorable Recent Experience
Having lunch tomorrow with the parents and just cannot decide on a place. Has anyone had a recent experience ANYWHERE in Manhattan that was noteable?
I ate at Giorgio's of Gramercy and loved it! Not too expensive, super service, cute decor and amazing food. You don't get much better than that.
If your parents love fish and seafood, there's always the Blue water grill where the food is very good.
This is, of course, too late for the o.p., but while I agree that Giorgio's is a lovely restaurant, they do not serve lunch on Saturday. And, though I like Blue Water Grill, I would hardly describe the food as memorable.
I have had a number of memorable lunches at Fleur de Sel, and Devi's 3-course lunch prix-fixe also fits that description. Both serve lunch on Saturday.
