Coming back to NYC for a weekend over MLK wkend. Looking for a rec's for the following:
1) One or two places for dinner that is great on food, stylish in ambiance, but not too *scene* or expensive. Meaning my BF is in NY terms kinda a LES/East Village type who gets overwhelmed by too many suits. Tops $150 for dinner for two. If we can keep it to $100 that would be preferable. Neither of us eat dessert. Any area would be okay, but downtown would be preferable as we will probably be going out for drinks downtown afterwards tho we are staying in the UWS.
2) What is the best NYC style pizza these days? I've been bellyaching about the bad pizza in SF to the BF forever and want to blow him away by the superiority of a NY pizza.
Thanks in advance!
