Hi, I'll be heading to NYC next Friday (September 30th) for 3 nights (leaving Monday October 3rd). We'll be a group of 6 adults in their early 30s (4 boys, 2 girls) from Montreal.
We'll be staying on 8th near W47th.
I'm looking for advice on bistro-style restaurants for dinners that locals consider "great values". By that, I mean that I'm not seeking the best of the best but just restaurants that are reasonably priced and that have a great ambiance. The ambiance I like is when it's sort of noisy, full of people having a great time, with dimmed lights, wood, etc.
To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, here's a couple links to some Montreal restaurants where I go often. You can look at these menus and you'll see the type of cuisine and prices I'm after.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
