Apologies, all. I'm new to the city and I still have a really hard time with picking restaurants according to transportation/location. I've got a friend staying in the city and we're meeting up tonight for dinner. She's staying at the Four Points by Sheraton Manhattan Chelsea, 160 West 25th Street which is on this subway line.
Can you recommend somewhere easily accessible?
* not too spendy, casual okay (apps under $12 entrees under $20/$25)
* somewhere we can get a reservation (8pm) or walk-ins are easy
* good cocktails, fun atmosphere
* all cuisines, with maybe a nod towards small plates
In the past I've really enjoyed Casa Mono. I don't like Spotted Pig.
My dining companion really enjoyed Butter on her last visit.
