Hi - I'm trying to find a place for my fam to go for my sister's 25th birthday.
Everyone in my fam likes something different, causing difficulty in finding a place.
We'd prefer a restaurant with entrees in the 20's, def some chicken or pasta on the menu and preferably not a steakhouse or italian restaurant (unless it's a tuscan-type place).
We really like Portofino Grille, I Coppi, Maya, Thalia, Scarlatto, Avra, Mesa Grill and Stanton Social, to name a few.
However, my brother doesn't eat steak or fish, so I am trying to find a nice restaurant with ambiance, not too stuffy, but a menu that is delicious but not as sophisticated or limited as cookshop, hearth, gramercy tavern (we'd love to go there - looks fabulous!)
Any location is fine - other than financial district. Will be driving so prefer easy access from FDR or West Side Hwy.
Excited to hear your suggestions!
