Making my first trip back to Manhatan in 4 years and I have two nights, 10/31 and 11/1 to sample a New York only restaurant that will give us great food (NOT RICH) a good wine list and an experience to remember. I live in Vegas after 30 years in LA so I get the pricetag issues. That is not an issue.
Italian, spanish or great seafood always work. We arent snobs so it doesnt have to be white glove. We prefer restaurants where there arent sister restaurants in Vegas or LA so lets rule out Mario Batali type chefs.
look forward to suggestons.
