Looking for suggestions for a lively restaurant for a Sunday night
Beginning to plan my annual spring visit to NYC and need some help. Last year we went to Bar Blanc on a Sunday night and while the space was very cool and the food was good , the restauarant was almost deserted which took away from the overall experience. Not looking for insanely loud...just not empty!
Some i am considering include Apiary, Maialano, Locanda Verde, Scarpetta, Gramercy Tavern (tavern side), and SD26. I am open to other suggestions in this price range. Cuisine and neighbourhood are not really factors.
Thanks in advance.
Have you considered Boqueria's Sunday night suckling pig dinner? I mentioned this a couple of times recently but the dinner is pretty amazing and it comes with a glass of wine, salad and sides. I believe 2 people at $35 each. Chef Seamus Mullun just got nominated as a semi-finalist for the Best Chef James Beard Award.
good choices. I would also add Dovetail on the UWS to this list. They have a lovely "Sunday Suppa" special that is 3 courses for $38, and a reduced price on their tasting menu ($75 instead of $95). We went last night and every table was full. Nice atmosphere of being lively but not "LOUD." Also, the food is excellent.
Although not on the level of food as the above, the lively atmosphere at Sofrito in mid town cannot be beat. It is jumping even on a SUnday and the food is very good as well.
