  1. What's your budget? Will you be dining alone or with another person? Are you asking for just dinners or lunches, too? What kinds of cuisines are you into? Any particular interests like wine or only-in-NY cuisine? Have you been to NYC before? How far are you willing to travel? I ask because some of the best holes in the wall are found in the Outer Boroughs (which is a separate board).

      Thanks Kathryn
      Budget is in the upper end but not "Per Se like" more than once. I like simple food with clear flavours, done well with unpretencious service. Last year masa, babbo and the prune were most memorable. Great wine on a budget would be great. We will be staying central (mostly)

        Do you mean $100pp a night? $200 pp a night? More?

        Define "central": you mean Midtown?
