Hello! Stealthy is not the aim, just looking for a place not too trendy or noisy, we have lots to catch up on. Can you recommend also a good American food/beer place mid to downtown, and also a cozy trattoria type place in Little Italy?
You could go to Lupa for Italian on that budget - cozy if you sit in the back room. Excellent Italian food. They are on open table, and often hard to get a reservation, but I usually call on Saturday morning and have no problem getting a reservation for two that day for lunch.
