I'm a first time visitor to NYC and staying near Rockefeller Center. My wife and I are from Los Angeles and enjoy French, Italian, and Asian cuisines. We don't mind cabbing it to restaurants out of walking distance, but it would be nice to get some recs for places nearby our hotel.
We're tentatively thinking of going to 1-2 more expensive (i.e. around 80-120/pp without ETOH), and 2-3 moderately priced places for dinner. We'd love to try some holes-in-the-wall or other places you guys think we must try.
In terms of style of restaurant - we're pretty flexible. But would prefer one intimate, romantic restaurant for one of the more expensive meals.
Thanks for any help.
