Looking to visit Manhattan over Memorial Day weekend. We've always stayed, and gotten comfortable with our options, at the flatiron and midtown east areas. We are going to spend a few days in lower Manhattan and liberty island this time. Any recommendations In that area? Or do we travel back to our old haunts? Must accept casual (jeans), be less than $50 per person (no alcohol), and not be sushi. Extra points for seasonal pastas, healthy options, and a good bread service.
