looking for help from fellow foodies! avoiding all the restaurants we have in NY (bond st, nobu, china grill, etc.) we have a $50 subsidy per dinner per person via work (we can cover the extra)- so far i've booked the following for dinner:
Nemo (sunday brunch)
we'll also be stopping in the joe's takeaway
does anyone have a preference between escopazzo and grazie? or does osteria del teatro reign supreme? (i sound like the iron chef host) i went there 5 years ago, so i'd prefer to try something new, but if people believe it is far superior to the other 2 italian, i will concede.
also, i need some suggestions for lunches, on the more economical side, to go to by myself. i guess i'm looking for bang for your buck, but good eats. people keep mentioning dave's cafe, but i can't find anything on the internet under that vague name. does anyone know where this is exactly? no san loco (we have in NY), i was thinking of checking out puerto sagua? any other suggestions? pizza doesn't particularly appeal to me, since we have all the pizza we need here in NY. looking for more authentic cuban, or awesome lunch places that i can dine alone and not feel weird.
any help is greatly appreciated!!!
