New York City in September
Looking for lunch/dinner suggestions. Healthy food/options! Staying midtown.
You need to supply details for this board to help you. This is a site with THOUSANDS of options in the largest city in the country. It's sort of like you just asked: "I want food."
Number in your group.
Do you want to stay in midtown or will you travel?
Do you drink? Cocktails? Wine?
What areas of the city will you be exploring?
First time here?
It often helps to review the board and then ask for specific feedback on places of interest.
Get the idea?
Where have you dined before and what did you like?
For really good seafood in Midtown, $50pp will be difficult. Blue Fin and Sea Grill are both mediocre. Esca can be good if you skip the mains. I like Oceana but it's probably a bit over your budget. Le Bernardin is excellent but more expensive unless you do the lunch $45 prix fixe menu in the lounge.
What kinds of ethnic cuisine? Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai, etc?
