Resto Rec's for an out-of-towner

I'll be in NYC the weekend of Oct. 3rd and was hoping for some good rec's re: dinner. I'm an adventurous eater, and would be looking for something in the $50-75 pp range. I'll be staying in Murray Hill, but will be travelling throughout Manhatten, so location can vary.

Ethnic and/or new establishment suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks NYC-ers.,...and I'd be happy to reciprocate should you ever venture north. We really do eat more than just bacon and pemmican!


Has our very own Sasur Lee opened his NYC venue yet? If so, is it any good?

  1. Will you be dining alone? Do you prefer more formal or casual? A lot of fine dining establishments, for example, will allow dining at the bar...or do you prefer a table? Are you OK as a walk-in or would you want to make a reservation? Where are you from? I assume Toronto/Canada since you say "should you ever venture north"? Any cuisines that you want to try? BTW, Susur Lee's new restaurant, Shang, is not open yet. It is rumored to open in Late October.

      1. Thanks for the replies folks. In terms of ethnic foods, I'm pretty much open to all. Frankly, you seem to have a lot more Korean options than we have up here, so any thoughts on that front would be greatly appreciated. I'll be dining with a (picky) friend, but eating at the bar is ok by both of us.
        Thanks fro any and all help!
