My boyfriend and I are coming to NYC Memorial Day weekend, and excited to eat our way through. I'm quite adventurous but he's a picky eater, so looking for places that are exciting and have a fun atmosphere but also have a steak or chicken on the menu. We're also looking for places that are especially unique.
I'm specifically looking for one weekend (Saturday or Sunday of the long weekend) dinner idea in Manhattan. I'm leaning Lower East Side/villages/SoHo due to the vibe of the area. We're thinking of doing Park Avenue Spring on one day, and I'm in charge of the other. Would love to do something trendy/hip and not too expensive (entrees under $35) if possible. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
