We are from Montreal and will be in NYC next weekend and we are looking for cool restaurants. By cool I mean really creative, really modern food in an interesting environment. Nothing too fancy, chichi or trendy. No Vuitton handbags pleaaaaaaase.
My idea of a perfect spot would be a restaurant in a loft, for example, with a young unknown chef: the future, not discovered-yet, American Ferran Adria...
We are staying mid town so it can be just about anywhere, even outside of Manhattan if it's worth the trip.
Any ideas ?
