I'll be making a trip back to NYC, my last trip was about 5 years ago, just looking for a few lunch and dinner recommendations on things that have popped up in the last few years that are worth checking out.
I'll probably visit a few favorites like Momofuku Ssam, Ippudo, Noodletown, and either Jean Georges or Eleven Mad.
A few new spots I have read about are The Brindle Room and Black Tree.
So I'm looking for a few casual dinner recommendations, probably $50 pp including a drink or two. About the only styles I'm not interested in are Sushi and Mexican.
Locations: I'll be staying in the Meatpacking Dist so probably anywhere around or below Midtown.
I'm planning on doing one solo nice lunch, I have loved JG and Eleven Mad, should I considering something else?
Hopefully this is enough info, thanks very much!!
