"New York" meal for out of towners
I have friends coming to visit for a week from all over the world (no other Americans in the group). I want to take them out for a nice, "New York" meal. (We'll be doing cheap, but no less "New York" every other night.) I'm hoping for something where we can get a little dressed up, and enjoy ourselves in a nice atmosphere. A tasting menu would be fun, but not essential, as they are probably out of my price range.
trying to keep it to $50 per person not including tax, tip and alcohol.
Thanks for any and all suggestions!
I think by "New York" I just want them to feel like they aren't in Kansas anymore (or Poland as the case may be). Just a chance to get a bit dressed up and have a good food.
As for other meals, there are no reservation but there will be a lot of Indian, Thai, Mexican etc. Pretty much all the foods people can't get in their current locales.
not sure when this will occur, but David Burke Townhouse is participating in Restaurant Week. do you have a date set already?
Riverpark may be a good choice. I was just there for a Restaurant Week dinner, but the regular menu is also well within your budget. Ask for a table by the windows, with the view of the East River, though they won't guarantee that. The inner part of the room is quite lovely too. The food is innovative and delicious, and the atmosphere is elegant, but not stuffy or overly formal.
