Need Suggestions for W. 57th St. area Seafood or Italian

foodwhisperer Sep 13, 2012 09:45 AM

Help! I need suggestions for seafood or Italian food for dinner tonite and about $60 pp. I am going with people who do not eat Japanese or Vietnamese food,,otherwise I would have considered Nobu, or Le Colonial. Jean Georges is too expensive. We will be walking so, preferably within 6 blocks of 57th and 6th. I didn't know how to search for that here, so Kathryn forgive me :)

    No Japanese or Vietnamese, OK, but would they consider Ma Peche, Bar Room at the Modern? Or Seasonal?

      Ive never been to Ma Peche but the menu looks fine. I've been to Modern but not the Bar Room, i don't think these are bar room people i'm going with though. Seasonal is too much of a gamble , if they would like it. The people in my party are not very adventurous

      RE: tommy D : Nougatine sounds good also, ( I've never been there)

      Marea, if you order the pasta a la carte and skip the secondi.

        How about Nougatine instead of Jean Georges? The menu features several seafood appetizers and main dishes.

          Second Nougatine...though it may be hard/imposs to do for $60.

            Had a hard time getting the phone numbers of Nougatine and of Ma Peche from ATT. But remembered Nougatine had something to do with Jean Georges. I didn't realize it was the bar area of Jean Georges, i have been to JG many times and never about Nougatine. Anyway , both MP and Nougatine were booked. Marea was booked too. So I made the mistake of going to the worst place. McCormick and Schmick, i remember how bad they were in Boston, they were worse here. I won't discuss how bad, just advise no one to ever go there.

              Ahh too bad, I bet you could get Benoit to come in under 60USD. Good spot, 55/6. Bar Milano is right there also, but dont know much about it.
