Hello to the new yorkahs,
I will be traveling to the big city tomorrow for the weekend, and, not one to miss out on the extravagant eating opportunities that abound in this city, i am looking for some recs on where to go for saturday lunch and dinner, and sunday brunch.
Saturday day, willing to go anywhere in manhattan for a great lunch spot for 2, no more than $30/person, gems on the cheap appreciated as well. If it's a nice day, would be nice to eat at a restaurant that's airy with good people watching, any type of food... Or, would even appreciate a suggestion for a place where I could get (other than a slice) somethin that can be walked around with...
Saturday night, will be attending a bday party in the East Village, so a great restaurant in that area would be perfect. Not looking to spend more than $100-$120 total for 2. Italian is a plus, but more emphasis on very good food, no matter what the genre.
Sunday brunch, Upper West Side. Cheap but yummy.
I appreciate any and all thoughts/recs/suggestions! TIA!
