Trendy dinner for visitor
My former college roommate is paying me a visit this weekend. Unfortunately I have recently moved to New York myself and just began exploring the restaurant scene. Looking for fun, trendy places for dinner where I can get a reservation relatively last minute. Ideal is a 'seen and be seen' type of place, knowing him, without compromising food quality! We are both single professionals in our early 30s.
Eater's "heatmap" is a good list, i would skip butter midtown just because i was never impressed by downtown......
I really liked toro.
If no res are available inquire about bar dining or a bar menu.
The nomad (part of hotel- not the restaurant in e village) will most likely be booked yet has amazing atmosphere and a great bar
