I'm very new to the hood and my friend wants to come uptown for dinner. She is a serious foodie, a great cook and I've never had a bad meal with her.
Good: she is a pretty adventurous eater and not snobish, if its good she can eat out a food cart.
Bad: She is half italian so I can't take her to any of the billion generic italian places around my apt... If I pick italian it has to be very, very good.
Area: 70th-95th, East End to Park.
Budget: max 35$ per entree.
I was thinking Cafe D'Alsace, UVA, JG Melon, Beyoglu, Cascabell or Libertador.
Any other ideas?
