a friend will be in town from la in a couple of weeks -- only her second time in NYC - and we are having lunch on friday feb. 13. she is a bit of a chowhound but also gets caught up in the glitz and glamour -- she is from LA. so, i was thinking going to a place where the gals from sex and the city go may pique her interest -- but only if it is chow-worthy. problem is, i have never seen the show -- let's just say sarah jessica parker makes my skin crawl for no real reason.
anyway, i was hoping for some recommendations. anywhere on the east side from downtown to uptown preferred, but not essential. also, nothing that will completely break the bank.
thanks in advance!!!
