I'm hoping you can tell me where I must go in addition to where we've already booked? We are a Mum (55) and Daughter (32) looking to eat as well as we can for our modest budget of $20-$30 per lunch or dinner excluding booze and tips. We're staying in the West Village/Chelsea area and will be in town from Sept 6th - 18th. We eat just about anything though not huge fans of raw seafood.
I was guttered to read that EMP are raising the price of their prix fixe lunches - so sadly that won't be on our itinerary now (as good as the food must be).
We've booked lunches only at Jean George's and Del Posto. Dinner at Les Halles (I know but I'm a sucker for AB), L'Ecole at FCI and Hill Country. Will also be doing Carnegie or Katz and several 'foodie' walking tours - one in Greenwich, one Chinatown.
Most of our itinerary seems to be planned from Midtown south, so looking for somewhere that will take us UWS or UES?
Also any recs for good cocktail bars?
Thank you very much
