I've been searching the board for the "coming to NYC/check my itinerary" posts. While they are very informative, I find the recommendations skewed towards the lower-price range (shake shack, X'Ian, etc) and the upper end (per se, wd-50, emp).
I usually go to Ippudo if it's just for one night. But apparently, we have a few good ramen places opening up in Toronto this year (plus it's getting warmer, so I'm not craving ramen as much).
Places I've considered are:
Sakagura (but izakaya alone seems weird)
Spotted pig (not really able/willing to invest time into a lineup)
Torrisi Italian specialties
Ssam bar (been there for the duck lunch, was good)
and a few others...
So, I've got $50-$75 to spend. Might only have 2 beers (have a 7:30 meeting the next day). Is there a really good tasting menu in that price range that could work?
Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
