Dinner with friends Sunday night, and they want to go to the Redeye Grill...again. I do not like the food at the place, and am not impressed with the atmosphere. And it costs far too much for what you get.
Help me find an alternative! My friends are picky eaters and will resort to steaks/burgers/basic chicken dishes. My wife and I do not eat meat. Not sure why, but I am thinking of perhaps talking them into East of Eighth, which I have never tried.
Prefer Murray Hill, Flatiron, Union Square, or Chelsea. 9th Ave would be fine. Not mid-town.
Thank you, in advance!
