As a Christmas present I'm taking my best friend out on the town in NY-he always says that NYC just seems so "touristy," so I'm trying to come up with some "in the know" ideas for early lunch and late night snacks/drinks in Manhattan. I made a reservation at Max Brenner's for an early dinner because we'll be going to the "Sleep No More" production at 7pm. It goes until 10, and then I thought maybe we could go out for the drinks/eats then and just relax and chat. I'm looking for something interesting, I've been looking at tapas menus and they all seem a bit boring to me. We want to stay away from seafood, but we're open to anything else....any suggestions? BTW, Sleep No More is near Chelsea it seems...but I don't mind traversing the city to go somewhere different (we have to catch the train back to Yonkers anyway!) Thanks for any suggestions!!
