I'm looking for somewhere with a comfortable atmosphere and possibly interesting decor to have lunch with my parents on Friday for my 21st Birthday.
Somewhere that falls around the "New American" category with more fish and chicken options because I don't eat red meat. Good soups and salads appreciated.
Also, tasty drink and desert lists would really bring things all together nicely.
I'd like a classy place, not too bistro-like and am looking to spend around $20 a plate average.
Anywhere in downtown Manhattan: East Village, Lower East Side, Soho, Noho, West Village.
