I'm taking my 13yr old daughter up to NYC for her birthday present (part of it anyways).
Flying her 1st class from NOLA on Friday, dinner for her and I in the city, then Saturday night she attends her best friend's Bat Mitzvah. I'm her dad by the way.
She's a young foodie - will eat anything and has been to fine restaurants her whole life. She's been eating Sashimi since she's like 7 or so....
Have not lived in NYC since 2005, so I need some suggestions.
We live in NOLA so looking for stuff we don't find down here too much. Was thinking about TABLA as one option (both love Indian), or perhaps a good Tapas place for us.
Don't want to spend an arm and a leg, so no Daniel or restaurants of that ilk (though I love Daniel....).
What would be some nice places, creative food, no too stuffy or "bar-like" to enjoy in Manhattan?
