Thanks so much for the recs for La Bonne Soupe and Menchanko-Tei in Midtown. I'll do reviews later on.
I've now moved to Chelsea for the next two days. I'm staying near 28th Street and 6th Ave. Again, looking for something in 5-6 block radius, although I'm not super opposed to heading down to the WV if it's the perfect thing.
I'll be alone, budget of $50 or less with wine. I'm looking for something cozy, neighborhoody, hangy outy (make sense) for dinner and lunch tomorrow. I'll be heading to Crispo in two weeks, so not there. I'll be in jeans, so nothing fancy. I'll probably bring a book and eat dinner, drink a glass of wine and hang out for a bit. I loved the recs above, also love Tia Pol in Chelsea, so stuff along those lines are great. I'm open to absolutely any cuisine.
Thanks so much!!
