Brainstorm for clueless New England visitor

newenglandnomad | Apr 2, 2014 09:57 AM

I'm coming down to NYC from Maine to meet up with some old college friends this weekend. It's a last minute visit, so no reservations have been made. I'm on a budget, and my friends are, too. I'd say no more than $50 per person per meal.

I'm looking for...

-Somewhere to meet up with 2-3 people for drinks/dinner on Friday, at about 6:30-7:00. Either small plates / tapas around $10-15, or entrees around $20. One of these friends is on a gluten-free diet. As for neighborhood - either Astoria, or anywhere on the East side from 14th street to about 60th street.

-Lunch (not brunch) on Saturday - basically anywhere in Manhattan, but preferably above 14th street. How's the Grand Central Oyster bar? Oysters or sushi or something else 'light' would be good for this meal, I think.

Thanks for your help
