So 6 of my friends all have internships in NYC this summer and they all just arrived last week, and we're getting together this Friday for dinner... except my friend who planned the dinner forgot to make reservations till today at Sushi Yasuda, and guess what, they're fully booked! So now it's up to me to save the day. I've looked on eater and nymag for recession specials, but most of the ones I'm interested in aren't offered on Friday, so please please please, any help would be appreciated!
Here are some guidelines:
-They would prefer a prix fixe option, but one that's less than $30 so all of the Jean Georges restaurants are out.
-We're pretty open to any cuisine but would prefer Japanese, Italian, French, or American
-As mentioned above, $30 is the most we'd like to spend per person
-We'd like to stay within the boundaries of Soho & Columbus Circle, but are willing to travel East and West.
I have a backup reservation at Landmarc at the Time Warner Center just in case, because the food there is pretty solid, although nothing special (besides the burgers! yum!).
