Need a good restaurant

Need a good restuarant with good food, and a happening bar, any suggestions?

  1. You've got to be kidding with this request. This is a city with literally THOUSANDS of restaurants to choose from. You are asking for a 'good' one with 'good' food. And a bar.

    Please provide type of cuisine, how much you want to spend, how many people, what time of day/day of week, what area of the city, what type of ambiance. The more information you provide, the more useful you'll find this site.

      Nope not kidding, well aware that it's a culinary empire however I don't live their. My boss asked me to find some places in NY City that has good food and a lively atmosphere.

      Doesn't matter the cost.
      Guys are in their 30's-40"s
      Their not into places like Per Si food wise. More meat & potato guys but kind of an upscale classy place, middle age crowd

      and yes I haven't used the sight too much, I will get the hang out it.

      Mercer Kitchen looks good

        Keen's- both the bar or the dining room should fit the bill - great steaks, good crowd.

          Keens would definitely be a good fit.

            RGR- why do I always put a hyphen in Keens?

            1. re: Ann900

              Actually, in this case you put an apostrophe and a hyphen after! Keen's-

                Yes, I know- sad, sad. Need to pay more attention.

                  Actually, there should be an apostrophe because the man after whom the restaurant was named was Albert Keen (no "s"). I have no idea why the restaurant spells it without the apostropher, but that's the way it is.
