Hello fellow foodies. I need your help. My good friend and I will be in NYC in a couple weeks. Please give me your recommendations for some casual restaurants for brunch/dinner with great foods and a fun atmosphere. We also love making new friends and people watch, so a high energy (minus the attitude), fun place is definitely one of the criteria we look for. And, they should also have a good selection of cocktails and/or beers and wine. I'm not looking for the expensive (over $100 per person) establishments. Looking forward to gathering a solid list from everyone!
