New Year's in Manhattan
What day of the week are you planning to dine post-theatre? Cuisines you like or dislike? Around what time? How far are you willing to go from the UES and/or Midtown? Can you define what mid-price means to you? $50 per person (including tax, tips, wine, drinks)? $75 per person? A SPECIFIC dollar figure will greatly enhance our recommendations.
Degustation is not open for lunch. Katz's is on the Lower East Side, not in the village.
When you say, the village, do you mean West Village or East Village or both?
Tues and Fri nights for dinner apres theatre. Willing to go wherever in Manhattan after the show although between midtown and the UES would be best. Price of up to $100 each with wine would be nice, if doable. Didn't realize Degustation was not open for lunch...thanks. GS's brother is now meeting us for a lunch in Little Italy...suggestions? Smokeanda pancake...will look at your recommendations. Thanks to all
For après-theater, I would recommend the following:
Seasonal Restaurant & Weinbar, on 58th St., b/t 6th & 7th Avs. Travels under the usual restaurant radar, but it is truly a hidden gem which has been awarded a Michelin star, and justifiably so because the Austrian cuisine is superb! Service is welcoming and attentive, and the ambiance is very pleasant. On Tuesdays and Fridays, dinner is served until 11 p.m.

dbBistro Moderne, on 44th St., b/t 5th & 6th Avs., 4-star Chef Daniel Boulud's restaurant serving contemporary French bistro cuisine. The food is delicious, service is excellent, and the surroundings are attractive. On Tuesdays, they serve until 11 p.m., on Fridays, until 11:30 p.m.
