Foodie dad is coming in to take me out for a casual weeknight dinner. I work near City Hall, and would like to keep it way downtown, but I suppose we could drift as far north as the Village, Chelsea or even Hells Kitchen (once I'm on an express train).
We're not exactly looking for Bouley, Nobu or Gramercy Tavern, just something nice and maybe a little new and different (and maybe just a little pricier than I would take myself out for, all but a night or two a year...). Maybe something in the same tier with Tribeca Grill or Fresh, down here.
Any word on City Hall (the restaurant), Harrison or Bridge Cafe? (Not that any of those meet the "a little new and different" criteria.)
Ideas? Bring 'em on!
