After having spent the summer working in the city, I will soon have one last week for a dining free-for-all. Since my SO isn't necessarily as much of a crazed eater as I am, I'm looking for suggestions for where a single diner can get a great lunch in the city, hopefully not setting me back any more than $40 a pop (prix-fixe or a la carte, doesn't matter). I'm tentatively thinking of checking out one of David Chang's joints (after having spent three months clicking my mouse at 10am, IN VAIN!), but that's hardly set in stone. I like all kinds of food, but may be more partial to Western cuisine for this particular week.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks!
