Dear chow aficionados, can you please suggest a restaurant (anywhere in Manhattan). Which meets the following criteria:
- Creative menu
- Mexican, Latin American, Middle Eastern, Asian (minus chinese or thai), New American, Non-traditional italian (not really into family style and large portions), Mediterranean, Seafood, French
- Outdoor seating
- Not very expensive (under $20 per entree)
- Pleasant decor
- Not loud
I know that it's quite a lot to ask for, and probably would not fall under the "Not very expensive" category, but I would love to get a few suggestions. Hopefully there are a few options which meet most of the requirements.
My dining companions are very adventurous, and love good food. What they don't care for are very loud, and "slightly'" dirty restaurants. Thanks in advance!
