Place to take my teenage sister tonight?
Need a suggestion for a place downtown to take my 16-year old sister tonight who is visiting the city. Want a place where someone her age won't look particularly out of place, but will seem fun and "New York-y" to her. Trying to go no more than $35 a person without drinks. Would love to be able to walk in, so we're flexible on time.
Past hits with her and friends have included Frankie's Spuntino, Motorino.

$35pp before drinks, and also before tax and tip?
If you can stand the wait, I'd try to walk into somewhere like maybe Spotted Pig or Lupa? New York-y + no reservations usually reads like a McNally, Chang, Bloomfield, Batali restarant request to me.
