When we're looking for food and drink specials in D.C., we usually check here:
Do we have a guide similar to this in the big apple?
What we're looking for is:
1) Drinks that won't break the bank (but not rail drinks)
2) Appetizers that are not all fried
3) Cool people to mix/mingle and learn about NYC
NOTE: I was born in Brooklyn, so I'm willing to go to NYC, Brooklyn, da Bronx, and Queens - even S.I. if I have to!
I'm bringing a few co-workers on a project to NY, so if you guys can recommend places that we can meet after hours - we're there! I don't want them doing the usual tourist crap, especially since my NY is the home of the ultimate in dining! I'm a big fan of the East Side/Village, but we have Metro Cards!
BTW - I read through most of the previous posts, and I'm looking forward to the food by our hotel (Sheraton on 53rd in NYC).
You guys rule!
Thanks for reading this post, and I'm looking forward to some great feedback.
