Plan to spend 3 days walking/exploring south of 23rd. As a single traveler, after walking all morning, I enjoy a sit down lunch usually in a wine bar, pub, lounge, etc. Looking for appetizers /small plates that are not the usual everyday wings, fries, spinach dip, sliders, etc. Hoping for a variety of suggestions I can look for depending on where I am at -- Financial District, Chelsea, East Village, Greenwich, etc. I'm flexible to hop on the bus or subway for a good meal -- afterall.. for me, food is a huge part of the experience when visiting NYC. A couple of my favorite anytime stops are Michael Jordan's and Artisanal Bistro if that helps.
Thanks for the suggestions!
