I love visiting Manhattan, I really do. My boyfriend, his folks and I are all coming in from Boston for one of our opera weekends and we're looking for a place to eat on Saturday night. Is Saturday night a nightmare everywhere in terms of restaurants? I just want to go back to our hotel with some excellent take-out and watch tv and enjoy a wonderful Sunday brunch somewhere fab, but I don't think this is an option (I'm a little stressed out and depressed right now). Does anyone have any suggestions? In the $15-$20 entree range, near Lincoln Center maybe (doesn't have to be) and we like everything--Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, French, Mexican, Japanese, Italian...We're attending a matinee so we'll be ready to eat around 6pm. Someone in our party wants it to be "a place we can all talk and be heard." Oy. There's about 6 of us.
Help meeeeeeeeeeeee, please!
