Two Fun, Upbeat Dinners in New York for Thirty-something Guests

bbnyc | Feb 12, 2013 09:14 AM

Hello everyone! This is my second time posting on these boards, and I always find your recommendations and restaurant savvy extremely helpful!

My twin sister and her husband, both in their early thirties, are coming to town in early March for two nights. We’re looking for a really great food itinerary for their trip!

I consider myself a foodie, and have eaten at many of the great NYC restaurants, but I’m having a difficult time narrowing it down to two restaurants for dinner.

Here’s the criteria: somewhere delicious, mid-priced (around $25 for entrée) but with a nice, upbeat atmosphere, younger but still sophisticated crowd (thirties, not twenties), and impressive / unique for an out of town guest. Anywhere in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

Maybe there’s someplace new that fits the bill?

Personally, I like vibrant bistro environments, and prefer smaller, neighborhood restaurants to larger, more clubby restaurants (like Beauty and Essex, Buddakan, etc.)

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
