Ahoy. Any suggestions on where a San Franciscan can get a late(ish)--say, 9 or 10 pm--dinner on a Wednesday night in Manhattan? Eating alone (alone besides, that is, my culinary Californian pretensions), so would love a bistro/tavern type place at which I can sit at the bar and have a few good glasses of pinot and a dish of some free-range/lovingly coddled beast to wash my fresh produce down. I also secretly want there to be a nice cocktail list.
Oh--I'm 30-something going on curmudgeon, so would like it to be on the quieter side. Staying midtown, but not averse to cabbing if more than 20-30 blocks away.
Any suggestions appreciated!
