What's the best restaurant where you would spend on average less than $40 on dinner for 3 courses (normal appetizer, entree, and dessert), not including tip. This doesn't include alcohol, obviously. A few restrictions/rules:
1. Average of $40 - so the breakdown is probably $7-12 for appetizer, $15-$25 for entree, and $7-12 on dessert
2. Has to be a restaurant - no food carts :)
3. Remember, in Manhattan.
4. Excludes Chinatown (I live near Chinatown and eat there all the time)
5. No family-style restaurants.
Thanks in advance for any/all the suggestions.
