New fall restaurants for dinner?

I'm going out with a couple of friends and I'm hoping to take them somewhere they haven't been yet. They eat out a lot so they probably know most of the more popular places. Any recommendations for restaurants that have opened recently but that aren't already 'trendy' because of some famous chef?

Some preferences:
- Entrees under $40. No minimum price.
- "Short" menu i.e. Only a few dishes available so that you don't spend tons of time deciding.
- Located between LES and 23rd, but can be on west side too.
- Takes reservations.
