Bored foodie..what's new and interesting?

amourlinds | Apr 30, 2009 06:20 PM

I'm a young downtown manhattan foodie. I enjoy places that allow me to get dressed up in addition to not killing my week of working out. As a single girl who dates a lot, I am also constantly going out to eat which has a few adverse effects: I get a bit jaded, my expectations are increasingly very high, and I abhor heavy food as I am constantly trying not to over indulge due to frequency. Building on that bit of TMI, I have been tasked with picking another restaurant to go out to dinner at tomorrow. This week I have been to Smith's in Greenwich Village, Bond St, and Morimoto...all of whim were him haw with Morimoto being the worst of all as the chef's selection at Bond St. was surprisingly good.

Alas, I turn to you all. What is fresh, different, unexpected and below 20th St. I enjoy great seafood, though not looking for sushi. One place I have been meaning to get to is Allan and Delancey or Corton, though something with a bit more of an edge or a scene (that's what he is looking for) might be preferred. And by scene, I simply mean a cocktail dress is appropriate ( not that it exists in meat packing).
