Restaurant Recommendation Needed
Fellow Hounds, dinner recommendation needed for Saturday March 6, for 6 people, after theater matinee. Looking for restaurant with WOW factor, but one that won't break bank. Some place on the casual side would be good, and where conversation is not drowned out by overall din. Italian, French, seafood all possibilities. Thanks in advance for your help. Short cab ride from Broadway vicinity okay.
Since "won't break the bank" can have very different meanings depending on what the bottom line of a person's bank account is, it would be helpful to know your per person budget for food only (drinks, tax & tip additional). That said....
Uncle Nick's food is fine but definitely not a WOW.
A short cab ride from B'way can get you to most Manhattan neighborhoods. If you can get a table at Maialino, you will dine on Italian food that, based on our two experiences, will have you saying, "WOW!"
