  1. Tia Pol - Spanish Tapas, lively atmosphere, great food and drinks, not that expensive
    Stanton Social - International Small Plates, a little trendy, moderate priced
    Spice Market - Great atmosphere, good good, can be reasonable if you are careful with what you order

    1. megu - but it is pretty pricy or do Gordon Ramsays MAZE - set menu is astonishing value and if you ask when you book you can have a tour of the kitchen too...

      1. L'Ecole. The French Culinary Institutes's restaurant. 5 course pre fixe amazing food for $40. You cannot go wrong.

        1. Del Posto is very nice and, in my opinion, a great value for a fine dining experience

          1. Depends on your definition of reasonable $$. In my price range, I'm a fan of Alta, Sala 19, Gyu-Kaku, Highline, Tapeo 29, Sea Thai Bistro, Klong --- in general it seems like Thai restaurants offer the best combination of value and vibe.
