I am traveling to NYC for 4 days next week. I'll have some time to myself on Friday and Saturday afternoon and thought I would check out the High Line park. (I live in Chicago and they are thinking of putting someting similar very close to my house). I would love to find a place for lunch - possibly meeting a friend- that won't break the bank but would be a nice cap to a walk on the park.
Also, I am looking for a place to meet about 7-10 people on Friday night for dinner that has good food and wine. A few years back we had dinner at Crispo with friends (on recommendations from NYC hounds) and everyone raved. Would love to introduce New Yorkers to another great place that they might not know about.
