Hi this is my first time posting so pls excuse any errors
I would like a recommendation for a restaurant for THIS thurs evening at around 6pm- I am hoping the day of week and time mean that I dont need to reserve too far in advance (or dont need reservations at all!)
it will be 4 people (me +3). my 3 companions work in manhattan but RARELY go below midtown. I took one to momofuku ssam and she loved it. I was hoping for a similar sort of recommendation
crowd likes asian fusion- but this is not obligatory. I was mainly hoping for the refined hipness factor. they say they want to see downtown, but the one time I took them to a "gritty" place I frequent in alphabet city they didnt like it
so basically I want to show them something interesting, hip, with good food and a downtown ambiance- whatever the hell that means, but it has to be palatable for someone who doesnt live here.
the price point is negotiable- I was hoping for 250 or less before tax/tip/drinks. or momfuku ssam prices
thanks for your help
