Just finished my second year as a student musician at Juilliard, and I stumbled upon this site. After reading some of the posts here, I definitely have found people who share in my delight for finding the perfect whatever.
Unfortunately, most of my cheap classmates do not share in my penchant for culinary delights (they spend their money on drink, go figure for musicians:).
So, I often find myself dining alone and often feel awkward doing so at some finer establishments.
If anyone would like to accompany me to share in an adventure of finding great eats around Manhattan, and wouldn't mind and perhaps enjoy some good conversation as well, reply to this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know when and where. Look forward to hearing from you.
