Not sure if "Bistro" is the right word to describe...but anyway looking for a place with excellent comforty type food - friends coming into town...thinking along the lines of market table, cookshop, five points etc. but maybe something new or different...anyone have any ideas? Can be anywhere...entrees in the 25-35 bucks range. TIA

      Commerce is my go-to for exactly what you described above.

          I went to Commerce on LB's suggestion and it was great. Only draw back was how crowded it was on the weekend. Very small bar area but the nicest looking block in NYC by far.
