I'm coming back with my wife for a quick visit and am experiencing brain freeze when trying to come up with ideas for dinner on Saturday night. We moved to Boston about 18 months ago and miss the excitement of the city as much as the food.
I'd like somewhere with a good 'buzz' and good food, entrees in the 20-25 range. Spotted Pig comes to mind, but we don't want a long wait nor a really touristy crowd. I am limiting this to American and Italian (and maybe french) because that's what I'm in the mood for. 'inoteca is all I could come up with. Help
Also, we're staying down in Battery Park. Is there any decent coffee down there yet without having to head uptown?
