Love the Red Cat, but have eaten there too much in past month.
Looking for something like it that's:
1)good-to-very-good food & atmosphere;
2) similar price range;
3) can walk into on a Friday night and either snag a table or seats at the bar after a reasonable wait;
4) in lower Manhattan; and
5) any cuisine but chinese.
I've also overdone Lupa & Po of late (I know, I know, tough to over do these but I'm just looking to shake myself out of the tried and true regulars and find some new ones!)
Any and all thoughts greatly appreciated!!
