Dinner suggestions for 9/4

KathyH | Aug 27, 2010 12:06 PM

We decided, semi spur of the moment to come into the city next Saturday to see a show. We have lunch decided already but I'm looking for dinner suggestions.

I have been all over chowhound and I guess I just get more confused.

First question, how much do we want to spend, we can go up to $80 or so per person, including a glass or two of wine, but if we can get something good for less that would be great.

Like most kinds of food, and are willing to go casual to semi formal. I know, I know, I am really narrowing this down a lot.

I did see that Jean George is doing a $38 dinner special at a couple of his restaurants, Nougatine, Jo Jo and Perry St. Also Daniel Boulud has a couple of prix fix dinner deals, DBGB for $45 and Bar Boulud for $42. Those would work for after the show if we eat early.

But we aren't adverse to grabbing a cab and heading downtown. Last time in the city we had the pasta tasting a Babbo and really liked it.

Had looked at Stanton Social, but read recently it is not as good as it once was. Also considering one of the Momofuku casual places, The Spotted Hog, Minetta Tavern, Perilla, Prune, Otto, Motorino, pretty much anything.

As you can tell I am all over the place and really starting to annoy myself.

What I really want is good food, which narrows it down to approx. 54,389 restaurants in the city. We'll say good food at a decent price which maybe cuts the number in half. Still a lot to choose from. Want a place that when I leave I say to myself, "man that was good, I could go back tomorrow and eat it again".

I appreciate any help you can offer.

Thanks in advance.
