Going to be in the city next weekend for a night. My schedule is pretty tight already, and to be honest I am not planning on making this a culinary trip. I am looking for a fairly laid back place near the mid-town Hilton/MOMA on a Saturday night. I want something maybe a step or so above a diner, but not asian. Doesn't have ot be the best food in the world, certainly not the fanciest or most innovative, just something reliable and where I dont have to getdressed up or refinence my house for.
My backup is La Bonne Soupe.
