I sent some friends to the Mercedes Restaurant in Morelia (Mexico), and when they returned they they damned me becuase I hadn't told them that if they had missed it they would never have forgiven themselves.
I'll be visiting NYC the 1st week in June with my strictly-vegetarian tea-totalling domestic partner. We are on a budget and obviously don't care about the wine list.
He needs more than pasta primevera for his choice, and I'll eat pretty much anything. We like ethnic foods, atmosphere, pleasant service, and value-for-money. I will probably splurge and take him to one pricey dinner.
Can anyone recommend places that I would never forgive myself if I had missed?
