My SO and I will be driving to New York next Friday night, and probably won't arrive until 7:00 or 8:00. We're staying at a friend's place on 26th and 2nd. Where can we get dinner on a Friday night without a reservation? Hopefully somewhere within a 15-20 minute walk from our place - so Murray Hill, Union Square, Gramercy / Flatiron, Midtown East, maybe Chelsea?
Sushi or Japanese would be great, but we'd do any sort of Asian except maybe not Chinese - but Thai or Korean or Vietnamese would be good - or Mexican or other Latin American food of some kind - or really anything else. Ideally, I don't want to spend more than $100 for the two of us.
Thank you for ideas!
