I'll be in the city Friday for one day (early) and for the evening, basically just to walk around and have fun. We usually go just to prowl around and eat and this time I've vowed not to make my SO walk more than a few miles (we'll take subways like we usually do).
The only place on my foodmap this time around is The Cart in midtown where I've been dying to try the chicken and rice (for lunch). I'm here to ask, where can I bring my SO for an early dinner. She is not a fan of any real ethnic food aside from Italian (so definitely suggest some places like that). Basically Italian or American would work. We've had our share of "the best" burgers in the city (that's her thing) but I would avoid any suggestions for places known mostly for burgers.
We're not huge drinkers either, so perhaps $50 pp for dinner?
We're staying at Le Parker Meridien, by the way.
p.s You don't need to debate the corner that the Cart is on or tell me that it's only open from 8pm on. I know that there's more than one and to look for the Yellow Bags.
