I will be in Midtown (Bryant Park) for 2 weeks in January and will be looking for great places to eat solo for dinners. So obviously places that have lively bar scenes that offer full menus at the bar would be great. I am coming from Vancouver, so no need for good sushi/chinese/ramen as I get my fill of that here.
I know the city reasonably well and I'm good to travel around on the subway system if it is convenient.
The goal is $40 per dinner (excluding tax and tip) and including one drink (beer, glass of house wine). Would be happy to exceed that to $50 or $60 for "Michelin" quality.
Ideally, $8-10 appy, $22-24 entree, $8 drink?
So far, my searches have brought up the following options:
Are any of these to be avoided? Are their any other things that are can't miss these days?? Love roasted chicken, really good rustic italian, and anything will big flavour!
Look forward to your suggestions
