A friend and I are going out to eat on 5th Ave tomorrow night. I used to live in the neighborhood and I know that a lot of new places have opened since I've moved.
We are looking for a place where we can linger, talk without having to shout, and eat good food for between $25 and $30 each. As a reference point, we were considering Jolie on Atlantic, but found the prices too high.
I've done a little research and found Red Cafe and Total Wine Bar. Are these worth exploring and do they fit my criteria? Any other suggestions?
