edgey NY restaurant for mom and 21 yr old daughter
My daughter and I are in New York for 5 nights during spring break. I'm looing for trendy restaurants with wonderful food. I need one night close to the theater. We're from LA (she's a Berkeley) so looking for fun atmosphere. She loved Tao last time she was here. Also went to Blue Fin before a show--we'd like something different. Afriend suggested Ca Va? Also Beauty and Essex?
Blue Fin was a good theatre district seafood choice. Becco is good for italian in the theatre district, if your daughter watches the Food Channel, Lidia Basianich is there most nights.
Minetta's is good and trendy. Buddakan for sure (located by the meat market). DBGB is trendy and the food is good. You say wonderful food. Most of the "wonderful food" isn't really trendy, it's more of conservative people and high prices. Like jean Georges, EMP, Per Se,etc.
Morimoto is trendy with a good menu. Sushi Samba is still kind of trendy in the W. Village.,
Kyo Ya is not trendy but it's certainly a great place for a kaiseki style meal in a place with secret toilets ( no signs, sliding wall). maybe WD-50. Sushi Gari is different but maybe similar to sushi Roku in Santa Monica. Kitichai in Soho is a good place to go too.
