A friend of mine has taken a job that has her commuting to the city from Connecticut. I live on UWS. She spends one night a week in Brooklyn. We having been trying to get together for dinner every few weeks or so and are looking for places in mid-town (or South) that are quiet & on the cheaper side (entrees in $20-$30 range).
We are pretty omnivor-ish. Ethnic (anything but Chinese) restaurants are great.
A place with tables large enough to take notes would be a welcome bonus (sometimes she needs to have a working dinner).
Thanks in advance for suggestions!
