Urgent: Restaurant Week Dinner Suggestion Tomorrow

jmp29 Jul 19, 2009 08:16 PM

Hey everyone,

I'm going with a friend from out-of-town to dinner tomorrow night. I'm considering taking advantage of restaurant week if we could find the right fit (and reservations!). Here are the conditions.
-Spicy food is out of consideration.
-My friend was hoping to eat somewhere that was characteristic of/unique to New York. So, we're not looking for an expensive Steakhouse, for example.
-An inventive menu would also be a plus. I've looked at several menus that just have basic salmon and chicken dishes as entrees: this is not preferable.
-I'd like to go somewhere where we're getting a bang-for-our-buck, where 35 dollars is cheaper than their normal dinner.

I hope those conditions aren't too limiting...Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help!

    I went to Tao. It was great. And the meat on the regular menu (which is on the restaurant week menu) is the cost of the entire restaurant week 3 course menu.
