We're a couple in our early 30's from Toronto with a long weekend trip to NYC booked for March. Hoping to get some lunch & dinner recs - we've read several other threads but since there's so much to choose from, we'd love some advice based on our preferences.
First off, I'm a vegetarian (lacto-ovo) but my wife is not...and she's a fairly adventurous eater. So looking for places that can accomodate both of us. We have 3 lunches and 3 dinners to fill. We'll do one pricier meal but for the remainder we'd appreciate recs under $200 all-in (with alcohol) for dinners and under $100 for lunches.
We like all kinds of ethnic food but for this trip would prefer standard fare (Toronto is pretty good for ethnic eats). Of course, we're open to anything that should not be missed. We love casual and vibrant places with good food & drink - gastropubs, small plates, etc. For location, we're staying in Midtown but will travel to anywhere in Manhattan (and beyond, although that would be for a different board..)
We have 1 dinner reservation already made for Gramercy Tavern - my wife runs a restaurant up here and has wanted to experience a Danny Meyer restaurant for a long time. But plans are completely open other than that. We'll probably see a show one night as well, so would appreciate some suggestions for places open late for post-theatre dining.
