I'm going to be in NYC tomorrow night and I'm looking for a great place to catch a meal. I love pretty much any style of food and just really want something delicious and interesting. I do have a dietary requirement, due to health issues, that the food be MSG free, but otherwise, I can have anything.
The caveat is that I'm a fairly poor graduate student, so I'd definitely like to keep it to under $100 (and preferably less) before drinks. I'll also be eating alone, and I'm not big into hipster / trendy locations; I'd prefer somewhere fairly casual that I can go to enjoy a quiet, relaxing dinner and a good book.
Thanks so much, all!
