I have a long-lost friend coming in from LA next week, and am planning to meet him for lunch. He's in "the industry," so I think he's used to trendy LA places, and I would love to impress him with a snazzy NYC version of somewhere hip, a nice scene, and of course the chowish prerequisite of great food.
I walked by Sushi Samba the other day and was thinking of that, however I've heard they are overpriced for what it is and also "so three years ago."
Can any hounds help me out with a fun recommendation? I'd love rooftop or outdoors, and of course great cocktails are also a plus! I have a week to plan, so reservations won't be a problem
Thank you one and all, :)
