NYC Native - moved from the area about 8 years ago, have lived in many other places.
Going to be in Manhattan Saturday night with a friend, he's lived on upper west side forever. We've both been to many of the "name places" over the years, but this weekend are interested in something new, newerish, or "undiscovered" (if that is really possible) that doesn't break the budget (my budget that is...I am paying).
Eat pretty much all cuisines.
Any suggestions? Have car if we want, probably will use, simply to avoid dealing with the trains (getting too old for that).
