I'll be back in the city the end of this month to spend a few days at the US Open. I'm bringing a friend with me this year, and we're meeting another friend (who lives in Brooklyn) for a special dinner one evening.
I've been to Union Square once before and loved it. I'm also a fan of Park Avenue Cafe. Both, however, are a little bit pricey.
Should I just bite the bullet and enjoy the evening at Union Square or can somebody recommend a good alternative that might save us a little bit of dough? Two of us are adventurous eaters the other is "meat and potatoes" so keep that in mind before making a suggestion. Also, for me the best part of the meal is dessert so places with great sweets are important!
